Bet you didn’t know this was in a musical!
The most famous recording of this song is by Bill Haley and The Comets in 1955, having been first recorded by Bobby Charles that same year.
The song appears in juke-box musical Million Dollar Quartet, which had productions on Broadway in 2010 and the West End in 2011. It is a dramatisation of a real life recording of an impromptu jam session between Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis in December 1956. In the show, Carl Perkins sings See You Later Alligator (although this was not part of the historical recording session and I couldn’t find mention of him ever recording this song). There are current touring productions in US and UK.
For this recipe, take a nice, ripe alligator. Squeeze it, and… OK, you got me. It’s just a coffee and a toy.
No alligators were harmed in the making of this post, but some coffee beans were put under a lot of pressure.
