UK comedian Billy Howard did a great job of impersonating half a dozen TV cops and had a hit in 1976 with a ditty called "King Of The Cops" which used the Roger Miller song "King Of The Road" as its backing song. I think that Roger Miller got most of the royalties for the A-side.

The B-side is "Bond Is A Four Letter Word" which nowadays sounds funnier than the A-side as most of the young folks of today would have no idea who the impersonated cops were on the A-side. The B-side is a Sean Connery spoof which still works well and will give you a few chuckles...

This record was sent by Neale Judd from WA who has asked for help cleaning up the old vinyl versions as the songs have not appeared on CD anywhere in the world.
