Evidently police corruption protected Spade Cooley as he regularly played free of charge for benefit shows requested by Los Angeles Police Dept. He never even received a speeding ticket during the twenty-four year period of this association with the LAPD. The big problem started when Spade Cooley invested his fortune to purchase desert land to develop a Disneyland style theme park to be named Water Wonderland.

Western Swing Music Society

This project would include a large lake, concert hall, resort and housing estate. Guest stars on his TV show were offered stock options instead of appearance fees.

He built a head office at the Water Wonderland site and put Bobbie Bennett in charge. This enabled him to charge all his band and TV show expenses to the Water Wonderland company. It also enabled Spade to charge the costs of his excessive high living life style to the company.

Shame! Shame! A Saga of Spade Cooley

Of course, all this money was going out of the company and nothing was left for development resulting in financial ruin. Spade was always a violent man but this sent him off the rails resulting in the brutal murder of his wife. He tied his twelve year old daughter to a chair to watch him kick her mother to death. His daughter testified against him at his trial. After the case was over, she posed for over five hundred photographs pleading to be screen tested for a movie role to play herself if the story was filmed.

Access Denied

Although the book is full of previously unpublished information I am very disappointed in the style that it is presented. Each chapter is in three sections, starting with Hollywood events of note during the chapter's period.

Shame! Shame! A Saga of Spade Cooley; The King of Western Swing!

This is followed by author, Robert Joling's presentation of the story and finally the edited tape text from Bobbie Bennett's interview. I assume this was done for legal authentic reasons. Another major fault is that there are no photographs in the book.

When you consider five hundred photos were taken of Spade's daughter after the trial, one would expect at least one to accompany the text. To sum up, although I found the information disclosed in the book interesting, I would not recommend it to any reader expecting a book on the music of Spade Cooley. This is a story of Spade Cooley, the monster, and not Spade Cooley, the musician.

Bob Wills was occasionally calling himself King of Western Swing. The publicity of Gable's label caught on with the public causing Bob Wills to stop using that title.
