5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely ABBA... 3 Nov 2009
I'm a BIG ABBA fan!!! In September this year I saw Benny and Bjorn in concert at Hyde Park, performing ABBA songs with Kylie, Lulu, Chaka Khan and Marti Pellow and it was the nearest thing I'll ever get to a experiencing a 'real' ABBA reunion, I think.... Perhaps it will happen one day... in the meantime music journalist Simon Sheridan has written this beautifully researched book about my favourite band, including a review of the Hyde Park gig I went to. It's packed with loads of information about all their original tours (with dates), plus fascinating stuff relating to their long-forgotten TV specials, plus all their single and album releases in year-by-year order. Also some lovley photos and reproductions of all their beautiful 7" single sleeves. A really special addition to my ABBA library!

5.0 out of 5 stars top notch! 11 Nov 2009
Once again Sheridan serves up the goods with this fascinating and adeptly researched tome on the Swedish super group Abba! What I like about this (and Mr Sheridans other books) is the lack of cheap gossip and the plethora of in depth information and his personable, nostalgic tone. No stone is unturned in his awesome cataloging of singles, albums, tv shows etc. It's a must buy for any true Abba fans and an excellent xmas gift for music and nostalgia fans alike! Two thumbs up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite complete but not bad 8 Nov 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is indeed a very informative perspective of Abba as seen through eyes of a British journalist. Lot's of iteresting facts and dates of TV shows. I never knew some of The German and Swedish shows had been broadcast in the UK at the time, but I was a kid so probably not up to see them.
One thing though that I can say is inaccurate, is the 'Not The Nine O'Clock News' Abba Super Duper parody sketch broadcast date. It was a year earlier and before Abba had released 'One Of Us' which kinda makes you think Bjorn was in a way being very tongue in cheek with the lyric to that song and used this idea for another huge Abba hit, having the last laugh.
A great read though and a facinating insight into the private lives with a hint of the conflict that was present.
I was expecting the book to be a bit more glossy and perhaps have a bit more pictures but it has only 16 pages of pictures in total. Never-the-less, it's a worthy addition the the Abba library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable ABBA 3 Nov 2009
By Adam
Just when I thought that nothing new could be said about ABBA, along comes 'The Complete ABBA'... a thoroughly entertaining and deeply informative book cataloging everything the 70s supergroup produced - all of their international singles and albums (including some obscurities), their little-seen TV shows and tours. There's also sections on 'ABBA - the Movie' and the 'Mamma Mia' stage show and recent film. I'm re-reading it already and it's worth buying for the fab photo inside of Agnetha wearing an incredibly revealing dress at Waterloo Station!! I had really been looking forward to 'The Complete ABBA' and it hasn't disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Abba 24 Aug 2013
By Chris
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We ordered this book for an 89 year old lady Abba fan who is in hospital. We also like Abba and having looked at the book, agreed with her that it was very comprehensive and well illustrated. She was delighted to receive it. We must also compliment Amazon with the speed with which it arrived - we ordered it one morning together with another product, and it arrived the following morning having settled for 5 day delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gimme Gimme Gimme! 5 Nov 2009
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

I bought the author's last book on Kylie Minogue and have been waiting for his pop follow-up! I'm not disappointed! It's all the ABBA stuff I wanted to read about - not a load of gossip about the band's personal lives, but a full, comprehensive and up-to-date account of their long career. It's got absolutely everything - reviews of rare songs (People Need Love) to famous songs (Gimme Gimme Gimme), their Eurovision success, chart positions, world tours and everything in between. I never even knew ABBA made TV shows! I want to watch them! Some great fun pics too. Lay all your love on this book!!!
