ONE SCOTCH, ONE BOURBON, ONE BEER * AMOS MILBURN * VOGUE POP 9163 * UK
Amos Milburn recorded his first 'drinking' record Bad Bad Whisky for Aladdin in 1950, he cut (no pun intended) at least eight other drink songs, including the above, while he was with Aladdin, including: Just One More Drink, 1951; Thinking And Drinking, 1952; Let Me Go Home Whisky, 1953; Good Good Whisky, 1954; Milk And Water, 1954; Juice, Juice, Juice, 1956; Rum And Coca Cola, 1956; I suppose it's fair to call this British release a double, hic, cheers Amosh, pour me another.
The song was both popular in the West Indies at the time and the UK a little later and still resonating in the late 1960s when Dandy Thompson released his version, see below.
