Offered for sale is a U.S. mono pressing of the 1961 LP Teach Me Tiger by April Stevens.

About this copy: This copy of Teach Me Tiger is a mid-1960s mono second pressing, on the black/white/maroon Imperial label.

The cover is VG+, with a bit of general wear and some initials written in ballpoint pen on the lower back cover.

The disc is M- and appears to only have been played once or twice.

A nice copy of a surprisingly good LP, though most collectors seem to want it for the cheesecake cover.

Background: Teach Me Tiger was the first solo LP by April Stevens, who later achieved greater fame by singing “Deep Purple” with her brother, Nino Tempo.

Allmusic.com gave Teach Me Tiger a 3 1/2 star review:

Teach Me Tiger! represents some kind of absurd apotheosis in post-Julie London pop seduction — April Stevens’ vocals are so breathy that one can’t help but wonder whether the poor girl spent the recording session hooked up to a respirator machine. Calculated naughtiness that’s ultimately as innocent as a lamb, the album luxuriates in the double entendres and nudge-nudge-wink-wink eroticism of a simpler time.
