Annette - Hawaiiannette (1960)

Aloha! I've been in a Hawaii state of mind this weekend (I have no idea why, but do I really need a reason?), so I played this record yesterday while I was putting my new dresser together (I should've gone ahead and paid for Eurway to assemble it, but that's another story). Then I thought I would go ahead and post it today (the album, not the dresser). I love Annette - her records, her beach movies, her other Disney movies. I even have several of the Annette series of Whitman TV books. Anytime I listen to one of her records or watch one of her movies, I just feel good! So, here I am sharing that good feeling with all of you - my blogger buddies! I have a couple of other Annette albums, which I'll post in the future, but if any of you have any requests, just post a comment.

What memories seeing this cover brings back!!! My sister had this record and I can remember looking at this picture of Annette MANY times when I was a young boy. Can't wait to hear the album again. Thanks for posting.

DO you have the album where she sang songs like "How Will I Know My Love?" and "Don't Jump to Conclusions"? I think it was just called ANNETTE. I'd love to hear that again if you have it.

Thanks for all the hard work you do on this blog. It's appreciated.

Hi Esther, When I was a kid Annette was very popular in New York. She was immitated by lots of the girls. Although they were older than me I did watch the Mickey Mouse Club when she was on it. When she went into movies I was too young to see them till 1967. A fun time back then.

Hey there!

Thanks for all your great comments!

Maven - I do not have the "Annette" album. However, I do have all but four of the songs on a CD set of Annette's songs. I believe they have been remixed, but they sound great. Let me know if you would like any of them and I'll post them.
