A jealous husband thwarted Jewel King’s superstardom.

But she did manage to put out 3 x 7 = 21, a single on Imperial that sold over 100k copies back when Moses was young. That jealous husband refused to let his wife go on a headlining tour of the West Coast so label producer Dave Bartholomew asked his old buddy Fats Domino, then unknown, to step into the breach. The rest is rock n roll history.
