Abba,The Vinyl Singles Box.
on 22 May 2014
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.
