ABBA – The Albums box set to be released

27 08 2008

ABBA’s eight studio albums plus a bonus disc of further hits and rarities, conveniently packaged in one single box.

A quarter of a century after ABBA last recorded together, they are back on top again – bigger than ever! Following on from this summer’s extraordinary success with the Mamma Mia! movie and its soundtrack, and ABBA Gold storming up the charts to become a number one hit album again, Polar Music International is pleased to announce the release of ABBA – THE ALBUMS.

ABBA – THE ALBUMS, released October 27, 2008, is a box set containing ABBA’s eight studio albums plus a bonus disc of single sides and additional tracks. This box set, packaged in an attractive, embossed cardboard box, is the ultimate ABBA collection, telling the musical story of one of the most successful groups in the history of popular music.

On early albums such as RING RING (1973) and WATERLOO (1974), we witness Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida’s first steps as they are trying to figure out just what ABBA were about. The journey continues with ABBA (1975), ARRIVAL (1976), ABBA – THE ALBUM (1977) and VOULEZ-VOUS (1979), capturing the band’s glory years as one of the most successful musical entities on the planet. Finally, there is the winding-down on SUPER TROUPER (1980) and THE VISITORS (1981), as the story reaches its inevitable end. The BONUS TRACKS CD collects the single hits that never made it onto one of ABBA’s original albums – Fernando, Summer Night City and Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight), to name a few – plus a number of rare single B-sides and Swedish-language album tracks.

ABBA – THE ALBUMS is a truly magical box of wonderful, timeless music, and will be treasured by every ABBA fan.
