I have just received this great book from Amazon. If you love Abba and are interested in how well they sold worldwide-then this is the book for you. The book lists all singles and albums that charted before during and after Abba, Hep stars, Agnetha and Frida solo, Hootenany singers, chess and Abba related. This book shows all the singles/albums chart entry dates, weeks on charts. The countries include Abba's stronghold loyal fan bases in UK, Germany, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Australia and New Zealand, as well as USA, Canada, France, South Africa, South American countries and Japan too plus many more.

If you're one for stats, facts and figures and you love ABBA this is the book for you. Bursting with information. I wouldn't be without it.

Containing plenty of pictures (albeit only of print quality as these pictures appear on standard pages, not photographic quality pages - that would make it much more expensive), this book looks at Abba's music chronologically, but focusing on the singles first then starting again with the albums. Just about everything Abba-related is covered, using (it seems) data from as many countries as the author has been able to gather data for, which includes all the countries that most people are likely to be looking for. In covering just about everything Abba-related, the author has included the Hep Stars, the Hootenanny Singers, solo music by the individual members of Abba, other projects such as Chess and hits that other artists had with Abba songs, wherever they happened if they were in one of the countries that the author has covered.

I said just about everything, but he has not covered B-sides specifically, though most of them appear in the pictures or are mentioned in the text. Also, although he has unearthed some very obscure hits with Abba song, he has missed at least one that I know of - Cristy Lane's American top 20 country hit with I have a dream, which peaked at #17. Still, I'm not really surprised that he missed that so I'll let him off :-)

I don't know how many non-hit covers there are of Abba's songs, but I don't come across that many (perhaps because I tend to buy mostly either pre-70s music or country music, neither of which are fertile territory for such music) but given that the author has researched a lot of hit covers, it might be an idea for the next edition to explore cover versions more. Is it possible to track down a good cover of every Abba song? Just a thought.

A very interesting book if you like statistics and seeing how well Abba's singles and albums performed around the world. I had been looking for a book like this for a long time and this publication did not disappoint. There appear to be one or two small inaccuracies as far as I can see, but I cannot imagine the amount of time and care that have gone into researching the facts needed for this book.

It is a great book for just dipping into or spending time comparing how Abba fared in different territories...I guess that says a lot about me!! In my opinion, the 5 stars are well deserved.
