Playing Forgotten Music on 78 RPM Records by Curt Hahn

Rum and Coca-Cola:  the Andrew Sisters, With Vic Schoen and his Orchestra 

Rum and Coca-Cola” is the title of a popular calypso. Originally composed by Lord Invader and Lionel Belasco, it was copyrighted in the United States by entertainer Morey Amsterdam (Dick Van Dyke show) and became a huge hit in 1945 for the Andrews Sisters, spending ten weeks at the top of Billboard's U.S. Pop Singles chart.

Lord Invader also wrote a follow-up song to "Rum and Coca-Cola", titled "Yankee Dollar".
