Seven Up
Fats Navarro & Sonny Stitt 1946

Spoken history of Seven Up:
7 Up was created by Charles Leiper Grigg, who earlier had formulated a carbonated orange-flavored drink  called "Whistle" while working for one Sylvester Jones and his St. Louis–based Vess beverage company. The slogan was "Thirsty? Just WHISTLE!" After breaking with Vess, Grigg launched his own Howdy Corporation [makers of Howdy Orange Drink] in 1920. Howdy was fairly successful as soft drinks go, but it was unable to seriously challenge Orange Crush, the leader in the field. Undeterred,Grigg switched flavors and mixed up his own original carbonated patent medicine. Until being reformulated twenty years later, it would contain lithium citrate, a mood-stabilizing drug. The concoction, originally named "Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda", was launched two weeks before the Wall Street Crash of 1929. Its name was later shortened to "7 Up Lithiated Lemon Soda" before being abbreviated to "7 Up" in 1936.
