ABBA


ABBA is considered possibly one of the greatest vocal groups of all time.

Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Fältskog, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad "officially" came together in the spring of 1969 when Björn and Benny met the two women who were to become not only their fiancées but also the other half of ABBA when they were all called in to sing on a musical television programme - the rest is music history.

Trivia

During the recording of ABBA - The Album, due to Agnetha's second pregnancy, Frida had to compensate vocally for Agnetha's absence in the recording studio on some tracks.

Both Benny and Bjorn met their future wives, Frida and Agnetha, when invited to sing as solo artist on a tv show. Many believe that this is surreal.

Building on the concept of ABBA’s 1982 double album The Singles – The First Ten Years, this new double-CD compilation collected every ABBA single as conceived and released by their record company, Polar Music, between 1972 and 1982.

ABBA's compilation album ABBA Oro was originally issued in 1993. The original version of this collection of Spanish-language tracks contained the ten tracks included on ABBA's 1980 album Gracias Por La Música.

ABBA's boxset Thank You For The Music was first released in Sweden on October 31, 1994.

ABBA's album More ABBA Gold was first released in Sweden on June 1, 1993

ABBA's album ABBA Gold was first released on September 21, 1992. To date, it has sold more than 22 million sales worldwide. Making ABBA Gold has become the group's all-time greatest success.

ABBA's album ABBA Live was first released in Sweden August 18, 1986. Fans had pined for a live album for many years while the group was still together, but the band decided against it.

ABBA's The Singles – The First Ten Years was first released in Sweden on November 8, 1982.

ABBA's Gracias Por La Música was first released in Sweden on June 23, 1980. To facilitate a breakthrough in South America, ABBA recorded Spanish-language versions of "Chiquitita" and "I Have A Dream" in 1979.
