Strictly for collectors only, words can not do this box set justice,mit needs to be seen to be believed. ALL of Abba's 7" vinyl singles,mas originally released by Polar Music with a few international variants thrown in to round the number up to 40. Presented with their original jackets and in some cases unique mixes, I can't think of a better way to mark the anniversary of the groups Eurovision victory in 1974. The world first heard most of these songs via the 7" vinyl record and boy oh boy do they still sound superb in the 21st century. The price, at time of writing is quite reasonable when you consider how much content there is in here (80 tracks). And just to sweeten the deal the ENTIRE contents are available as a bonus 320k mp3 digital download for those who can't play records or want to keep their singles unplayed. Me, I've played the whole thing from start to finish and am ready to do it all again. If you are just looking for the hits and would like to join in the 40th Anniversary Celebrations here's something a little cheaper but just as entertaining, "Abba Gold Anniversary Edition" which includes Abba Gold, More Abba Gold and an extra disc of single b-sides. Three cds of some of the greatest pop music ever made all housed in a gold digipak with a booklet. If you want to be a little more extravagant try this Abba Gold Anniversary Edition in a gold dvd size steelbook case with a lenticular cover. Very nice...But then again, I'm an ardent fan, so I'm unashamedly biased.

A really beautiful box set, I always had the dream, and I know thousand of people more, to have the singles as they were released by Polar in their native Sweden; perhaps they are not the most colorful compared to the West Germany ones, but now that dream came true with this anniversary edition of the 7" singles. the only thing I complain about it is that the singles for "Ring Ring" and
"Waterloo" (English Versions) and "So Long" does not feature picture on their sleeves for according to the explanatory text included in the box "for this box set, we have used the Swedish sleeves at a starting point, and then complemmented with sleeves used in either Denmark or Norway, or in both countries. This means that (the singles afore mentioned) are presented here in replicas of the bags used in Sweden, rather than the picture sleeves used in Denmark and Norway" because "most of them were actually not released in ABBA's home country of Sweden"; IMHO They should've made an exeption here and pick up those picture sleeves for these three singles for even in the Official ABBA web site those are featured with them instead of the neutral bags included here :( but despite this fact this box set is a treat for the eyes and ears and a fulfilment for some dreamers like me :D
Regards from Mexico!!

I do like ABBA, as I grew up listening to them. I was lucky enough to do some design work on a Benny and Bjorn project once, which resulted in me receiving a lovely letter and photo! So the group has a special place in my heart as not only did they give me good memories growing up - but they got into a career of graphical design, which was kind of an accident.

This item is a great companion to the Album box set, "ABBA - The Vinyl Collection"

A perfect collector's item for the rabid ABBA fan. Good pressings, nice picture bags (yes, they've been scanned so aren't 100% as the originals) and some curious yet interesting reflections on 6 of the songs, on several 7" blue cards, by Bjorn. A perfect way to enjoy ABBA - just don't pay full price, as it's really not worth it.

This is the must have for all Abba fans. Do you need all the Spanish versions of the singles? Of course not, however it is a joy to see the classy reproduction sleeves and have that wonderful thrill of putting Abba singles on and on and on. Overpriced, of course but come on, you deserve it.

The abba box of singles was exactly what I expected. Delighted with it. Some foreign issues as well as British. A delight

This is a great box set, and you can tell a lot of thought and love has gone into it, even with the details of some singles with jukebox middles like the originals and some not. This is a real throwback to the thrill of buying the originals in the 70's and 80's and and its great to have these brilliant songs as they were originally conceived.
