The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 4

Booze Legends

Bottoms up as the Legends of the Rocking Dutchman are a bit drunk today. This show is loaded with gin, whiskey, wine and beer as the booze is the central theme. In 1950, the great Amos Milburn started a succesful series of songs about drinking and whether or not inspired by his success, many others followed. So let's raise a glass to the great music that sings about its contents. Cheers!
