Offered for sale is an original U.S. mono white label promotional pressing of the 1961 LP Teach Me Tiger by April Stevens.
About this copy: This copy of Teach Me Tiger is an original 1961 white label promotional pressing on the Imperial label.
The cover is VG+, with a bit of general wear and a neatly repaired 4″ seam split on the top right edge.
The white label promo disc is VG+ on side one, with a couple of faint marks and some minor sleeve scuffs. Side two is VG++, with a couple of faint scuffs from the original paper inner sleeve.
This record still has lots of shine and appears to have had very little play. Clean disc!
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.
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.
