Annette Funicello, known during her early career simply as Annette, was an actress and singer who began her career as a child performer with the Walt Disney Mouseketeers on the TV show The Mickey Mouse Club, which led to her performing in movies and becoming a recording artist on the Disneyland and Buena Vista labels. Making her initial chart impact with the Top 10 hit Tall Paul in 1959, she had another ten hits through to the start of the 1960s, mostly in the teen style which she projected through her on-screen appearances, later becoming a star of beach movies during the 'second phase of her career. This great-value 65-track 2-CD set comprises the A & B sides of her singles on the Disneyland and Buena Vists labels during this time, plus the tracks from her albums Annette, Annette Sings Anka, Hawaiiannette and Italiannette not otherwise released on singles, with selected tracks from Dance Annette. It includes her duet single with Tommy Sands from the 1961 movie The Parent Trap, plus songs from her movies and TV shows Babes In Toyland, The Horsemasters and Escapade In Florence. It features all her career hits including Tall Paul, First Name Initial, O Dio Mio and Pineapple Princess. Her records captured a particular strand of teen entertainment from this era, and are very evocative of their times.
