Worldwide, ABBA are the second biggest-selling band of all time. With a collection of previously unpublished images, this book tells the story of the Swedish supergroup.
ABBA: The Book is the most complete and factually accurate history of ABBA to date. It is also a visual biography - it contains more than 300 illustrations including many rare and previously unpublished photographs, as well as a number of interesting documents such as record sleeves, advertisements, tickets, newspaper cuttings and magazine covers. In addition, the book is packed with quotes from the four members of the group about what life was with ABBA, and from their collaborators or famous ABBA admirers.
Many old and new fans will be able to explore the complete history of their favourite group in detail. I have included a lot of previously unpublished information and anecdotes. For example, did you know that in 1973, the group replaced the blond Agnetha by another blond female singer on a promotional tour? Did you know that in 1975 the Polish fans, taking Björn to be a woman, portrayed him with breasts?
What gives me most pleasure is that each of you, on reading this book, is going to discover - or rediscover - the story and the magic of ABBA.
