includes an Annette Funicello discography on the inner
gatefold pages. There is an error with the inclusion of
the 1965 Epic single Baby Needs Me Now. The credits
on that record belong to Cecil Null & Annette (which is not
Annette Funicello.) The Cecil Null & Annette duo
recorded a few songs during the time Annette Funicello was
releasing records and the first name-only credit of Annette was
confusing for some record buyers.
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.
