The Monkey's Uncle


Annette Funicello, The Beach Boys and The Spats
Label:  Merica
Catalog#:  2003
Country:  Iran
Format:  7" Standard EP
Speed:  45 RPM
Audio:  Mono
Year:  1965

Record Comments:  This rare Iranian EP combines Annette's Buena Vista F-440 single and The Spats' ABC-Paramount 45-10711 single.  Any records, especially those of Annette's, that survived the 1979 Islamic Revolution are a rare find.  At that time, the government closed all record companies and destroyed all available records on the market.

Coincidently, the Go Go Yamaha track makes a nice tie-in to the film's cross-promotional campaign with Yamaha Sportcycles (see press book pages below.)

In addition to the sleeve's 2003 catalog number, the record labels include number 1910 on side one and 1911 on side two.  Those are also the only markings for the matrix numbers.

Matrix Number: 1910 / 1911

Subject Notes:  Annette Funicello was born on October 22, 1942 in Utica, New York and died on April 8, 2013 in Bakersfield, California.  To Disney fans, Annette is best known as one of the original Mouseketeers on the Disney television show The Mickey Mouse Club, that first aired in October of 1955.  In 1958, she starred in her own serial, Annette, that ran for a total of 19 episodes as part of final season of The Mickey Mouse Club.  In the show, Annette played a young farm girl transitioning to an upper-class neighborhood.
