In 1974, four Swedes—resplendent in shiny satin outfits and silver platform boots—electrified the Eurovision Song Contest with a song called “Waterloo.” Three decades and 350 million records later, ABBA’s popularity remains largely undiminished—despite having not recorded a single note since their break–up in 1983. From dance–floor classics like “Dancing Queen” to sing–along ballads like “The Winner Takes All,” ABBA’s legacy of pop songs is truly remarkable. In 1992, Polygram released their greatest–hits album ABBA Gold, which has sold more than 15 million copies to date. Mamma Mia!, a musical written around 27 ABBA songs, opened in London in 1999 and remains one of the hottest tickets in the West End and on Broadway. Now, ABBA: The Book—featuring hundreds of color photos, many from ABBA’s private archive—presents the first complete history of the group. Drawing on exclusive interviews with all the players, music journalist Jean–Marie Potiez traces the incredible story of ABBA’s glittering career, including their years as teen idols in Sweden, their nine hit albums, their many world tours, the making of ABBA: The Movie, and a showcase of their most outrageous outfits.About the Author:
