Not much came of this: mainly, Johnny Long's "We'll Build a Bungalow," which was one big legal snarl for King...

Rights/royalties/true numbers of discs shipped, etc...it wouldn't have mattered if the song hadn't been a big regional hit. What's incredible is the number of times King was caught up in suits and countersuits, such as the BIG kerfuffle over the DeLuxe ownership, rights and holdings...talk about a mess. Thankfully, Syd had a crackerjack attorney in Jack Pearl...
