Offered for sale is a still sealed original U.S. mono pressing of Annette, the debut LP by singer/actress Annette Funicello.
About this copy: This copy of Annette is an original U.S. pressing on the Buena Vista label.
This LP is mono; there were no stereo pressings.
As the album is sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is nearly 100% intact, with a 1/2″ tear at the bottom edge on the back cover and tiny breaks at the corners, which are slightly balding.
A beautiful copy of an album that rarely turns up in this condition.
Background: Released in 1959, Annette was the first of fourteen albums that Annette Funicello recorded for Disney’s Buena Vista label between 1959 and 1972.
The album did not reach the U.S. album charts, but the single “Tall Paul” reached #7 on the Billboard singles chart and was the biggest hit of Annette’s career. “Lonely Guitar” reached #50 as a single, and “Jo Jo the Dog Faced Boy” reached #73.
Annette’s albums didn’t sell all that well, with only two reaching the Billboard charts, but they’ve remained collectible over the years due to the photogenic covers and due to Annette’s popularity as a star of a number of beach movies of the 1960s.
