The irresistible song became an international hit and gave ABBA their first UK No.1 single.
With a rare lead vocal from Björn Ulvaeus, ‘Does Your Mother Know’ found ABBA confident enough to experiment with their winning formula.
With hints of everything that would follow, ABBA’s debut album found the group refining their skills en route to greatness.
Completed at the end of 1978 at ABBA's Polar Music Studios, ‘Chiquitita’ soon emerged as the first single from their ‘Voulez-Vous’ album.
Their final album together – though not their closing chapter – ‘The Visitors’ broke rank with the past and brought the news that ABBA fans feared.
Featuring a solo version of ABBA’s Fernando, along with covers of David Bowie, The Beach Boys and 10cc, ‘Frida Ensam’ is a pop album touched with ABBA magic.
By late 1977, the Swedish quartet were on an unstoppable roll, especially in the UK.
Polar Music/Universal have announced a strictly limited edition, numbered, translucent blue vinyl 7” edition of ABBA's 'Happy New Year.'
Impossible to improve upon, ‘Dancing Queen’ remains a career-defining ABBA song – one that many have tried, but failed, to capture.
A rare ABBA song recorded outside of Sweden, ‘Voulez-Vous’ emerged as a classic floor-filling disco track whose reputation has continued to grow.
Written as a homage to Stockholm, ‘Summer Night City’ was a standalone release that became ABBA’s last No.1 single in their homeland.
The Swedish disco pop quartet has a legacy of smash hit singles and is among the most influential groups of all time.
Both before her career with Abba and after the band stopped working together, Frida recorded some great albums that are well worth seeking out.
Produced by Ludvig Andersson, it has been remastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios.
The track from 'Super Trouper' is being pressed as a limited edition single on different-coloured vinyl to celebrate each new year.
