April 26, 2017 Records of the Day

paul-ankaannetteIn 1960 Paul Anka and every boy’s favorite Mouseketeer, Annette, were an “item.” He wrote a hit record about their romance called “Puppy Love.” It went all the way to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The 45 with picture sleeve can fetch $50.00. It’s ironic that 5 years later Annette married Paul Anka’s manger, Jim Gilardi. But Paul loved her long enough to write songs for her album “Annette Sings Anka.” Released on Buena Vista records in 1960, a copy is worth up to $100.00 today.
