Subject: Teach Me Tiger

I've heard a song on TV a couple times recently that is most 
likely called "Teach Me Tiger." It is cooed in a very sexy female 
voice. Anyone know who sings this?

If they concentrated more on a central colorful character they would resemble some of Mr. Wirtz's Teenage Opera efforts. And that's a good thing. If there's more from the Zekley sessions around, I'd definitely like to hear it. Why do great endeavors like Teenage Opera, Smile, and this project go unfinished while things like Rick Wakeman's King Arthur are always completed? One of the great, tragic mysteries of life. jon cook -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Blasphemy!!! I'm talkin' SINGLES, Mikey, SINGLES. Those don't qualify, although they are definitely bubblegum records. Ron Weeks: > How much ink does Gary Usher get in your manuscript?

Not bubblegum, but very good, I agree! Annette has said the BABES IN TOYLAND soundtrack was some of the most difficult singing she'd ever done.

I think I remember it being by April Stevens. Am I right? Nino Tempo's sister. Very sexy and suggestive - what every girl group song should be : ) Will -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 6 Date: Wed, 03 Jul 2002 19:36:59 -0000 From: Neil Luver Subject: I'm new here My growing obsession of Phil Spector led me to joining this group. I have a few questions, mainly about the Phil Spector Outtakes. I searched the archive on this site and it helped a little, but I still want to know more. Obviously these aren't commercially available, correct? It seems like a boot, but I couldn't find it on the Midnight Records site. If it is a boot, I won't bother asking where to get it because I know how hard it would be to come by from searching for Beach Boys boots in the past... And speaking of Beach Boys boots.. I'm also a member of the bbmp3 group. I'm sure a few of you know how they upload BB boots to ftp's and other places for members to download. If it's not done already, it would be nice if the outtakes were uploaded in this fashion. I don't mean to come off too aggressively, but I'm sure others would also like to hear these tracks. If the outtakes are commercially or readily available, then shame on me..... I'm not out to rip off Mr. Phil, but if they are in fact boots, why pay the big bucks when only the bootleggers profit? And if it's already uploaded somewhere, Shame on me again for babbling and wasting space. Thanks. ADMIN NOTE: If any member wishes to help Neil out would they please contact him off list. Thank you, Team Spectropop -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I remember being told that the lead vocalist had been in an early 60s group but the name escapes me. thanks Norman -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

It's a superb job and deserves to be right up there with all the girl classics. Do you have any info? Phil -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The original starts with a typical early 60s-style arpeggiated guitar, and April breathes "Hi Tiger...", whereas "Teach Me Tiger 1965" has a "Stand By Me"-type rhythm feel, and a Nino/Spector sound to it. I like both versions. Phil -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I like > both versions. My fave has always been that "Stand By Me"-version, which was the one featured on the UK TV ad. But there is a third version, or rather another version of "Teach Me Tiger '65". It's on Mick's "Where The Girls Are 4". It's a completely different take - different backing track and vocal, but best of all it has a hilarious intro that sets the scenario thus: (Cue sound of car screeching to a stop, a crash, lots of broken glass) Then a plummy English male voice says: "What are we stopping on this lonely road for?" "Gee, it looks like my car's outta gas", replies April. "Oh no", says the guy, clearly terrified (he seems oblivious to the fact that she's just crashed the car!) "Oh yes......", purrs April, and launches into the song! I'm still not clear where this version actually originated from. Can you elaborate Mick??

You forgot the utterly amazing "Don't Stop Now" which features some blasting fuzz guitar and Annette kicking ass singing about feelin "like a motherless child". It rocks! Another great one is "Muscle Hustle" - "...everybody kick the sand, just like a muscle man...". "Jamaica Ska" is great, as of course are "Monkey's Uncle", "First Name Initial" and "Tall Paul". Fantastic! Ridiculous! Annette!! God bless her. DSZILCH -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
