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.)
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.
Annette Funicello was born on October 22, 1942 in Utica, New
York and died on April 8, 2013 in Bakersfield, California.
