SONG OF THE DAY Screamin’ Jay Hawkins – Alligator Wine

Have you ever wondered how to make alligator wine but just didn’t know where to start? Well, I have the answer but you’re going to need the left eye of a fish, the blood of an alligator and the skin of a frog! I don’t think Tesco’s stocked these key ingredients the last time I checked, but any productive person with half an imagination can figure out a way source these ingredients can’t they?….

Well, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins (a.k.a the pioneer of shock rock) seemed to think so and in 1958 released this recipe for love via American label Okeh Records!  Listen above (and no deviating from the recipe!!!)
