So far as most people are concerned, ABBA burst on the music scene
in 1974, when they swept to victory in the Eurovision Song Contest
with Waterloo. It is true, prior to Eurovision, the Scandinavian
quartet was largely unknown internationally - in fact, they
hadn't officially used the name 'ABBA' before. But it
is equally true Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha & Frida (as the group was
billed on their early releases) were not an overnight sensation.
All four members had tasted success - as a group and separately -
before they started recording together as ABBA. Numerous books have
been written over the years, telling the ABBA story - but this book
is different. This book focuses on the songs - the 'Gold
Hits' as we have called them, and details Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha
& Frida's chart successes on six continents, in no less
than 22 countries.
