Man, just look at that cover shot! Headlining our forthcoming "Torch Song" series is this sensational collection by April Stevens. This wonderful album features many terrific tracks (including many bonus tracks not on the original album as it was originally released by Imperial in 1958) with some pretty inventive arrangements by Henri René and our usual (although we say so ourselves!) terrific liner notes.
Her recording of "I'm In Love Again" (featured on the album) was a huge national hit, and straight away the DJ's and the public alike were under April's spell. Then along came the outrageously suggestive title track "Teach Me, Tiger!" which was actually banned on many radio stations at the time!
April (real name Carol) and her brother Nino (Antonino Lo Tempio) scored a huge international hit together in 1964 with "Deep Purple" funkily arranged by Jimmy Haskell with a close harmony and dead flat sound. The song was even re-recorded with Italian lyrics for that country (where they had family roots), but it failed to ignite there.
