4.0 out of 5 stars Some of the Best of Annette May 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Annette became a TV Star at age 12 on Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Club and went from TV Star to Teen Idol to Movie Star with Grace, modesty and dignity in a career that spanned about Ten years and she still remains in the public consciousness. I suspect this is because she was the "real deal", shy, unassuming and the genuine personification of a "Nice Girl". This set from Vista contains three of her hit singles: "Tall Paul"; "Train of Love" and "Pineapple Princess" and also contains a few tracks from her series of "Beach Party" albums, most notably: "Beach Party", "The Monkey's Uncle" (with the Beach Boys singing backup) "Jamaica Ska" and "Surfer's Holiday". It's great fun and you'll love it. Several of Annette's major hits are missing here includng "O Dio Mio" and First Name Initial". That's why this CD loses one star. I only wish that Vista (Disneyland) would release more of her albums on CD, particularly the Beach Party series.

5.0 out of 5 stars BLAME IT ON "ANNETTE" May 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When I just want to "smile", not just reminisce but really "smile", I put this "Best of Annette" CD on my player and I'm immediately in that world I used to inhabit back in the late 50's and earl sixties -- and just as happy and carefree. There's something about Annette's voice that can do that for you. She sounds so happy and carefree that she just pulls you along for the ride.
I couldn't get her"Girl Next Door Reunion 2 disc set" so I did get this 14 song collection put out by "Buena Vista". I was not disappointed (except for getting fewer tracks). From the first cut "Tall Paul" (naturally) you're back in love with Annette.
My favorite song on this collection is "Tell Me Who's The Girl".
A sort of mellow lament she expresses at accidentally (?) seeing a photo of her boyfriend with another girl.
Another track that I just happily smile away with is "Pineapple Princess". And so she is one!
I already had a copy of Eydie Gorme's "Blame It On The Bossa Nova" which I always enjoyed (another "up" and happy tune from that era of Bossa Nova craze. I didn't remember that Annette had also recorded her version of it. And so, it's a "toss-up" as to which I prefer now. Annette captured the song every bit as well as did Ms Gorme. So now I have "two" versions to listen to and enjoy.
If you love music from the late 50's and early sixties. . .if you love Annette. . . get this CD! You'll thank yourself for buying it. And don't lend it to anybody. . .they may not return it to you!
Thanks to Ms Annette Funicello for all the happy memories and thanks for all this neat music and thanks for all the "smiles"(p.s. I hope you're feeling well these days too!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Pineapple Princess July 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like 50's and 60's music, especially pop or beach music,you'll like this. I like "Pineapple Princess" a lot, even though it's often spoken of in less than glowing terms. But I remember listening to it when I was a very small child and I just loved it. It's true that I've wondered how the boy she sings about could sing his songs "from banana trees" when the only banana trees I've ever seen don't have branches suitable for climbing. But hey, what do I know about Hawaiian banana trees? I also love "Let's Get Together" and some of the silly, obviously-made-for-the-current-Disney-movie songs like "Monkey's Uncle" and "Merlin Jones." These are songs from a different era. Live a little, go visit the music your parents or grandparents liked!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Annette Funicello October 9, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In 1993, Disney Records released a two-CD retrospective of Annette Funicello's recording career. As I recall, it wasn't
in print for very long. When it was deleted, there was nothing
commercially available until now.
This fourteen track compilation is essentially an abridged
version of the double CD set. Disney has even resurrected
the Buena Vista logo for the occasion.
It includes some (but not all) of her hits, some moderate ones,
theme songs from Disney movies, songs from her beach party era,
and a few album tracks.
The release should have at least included "O Dio Mio," a big
hit single for her.
Furthermore, my two favorite Annette songs were regrettably
"Treat Him Nicely" was her solo number from "Beach Party,"
the first in the series. A beautifully arranged ballad of
lost love, it was, for me, the highlight of the movie.
The other song is the re-recorded version of "How Will I Know
My Love" released in 1964. She first sing it as a youngster in
a Disney serial back in the 50s. Her voice was high pitched,
and I didn't care much for her rendition. Then, many years
later, she re-recorded the song for Buena Vista. By now, she
had matured into a young lady. Her voice had softened considerably, and she sang it in a lower key. Backed by a mellow
guitar playing in waltz rhythm, she sang it wistfully as a love
They are, unquestionably, in my opinion, her two best songs,
and should be included in any such Annette CD collection.
