3.0 out of 5 stars Good.... but should have the Spanish versions to make it complete..., 16 May 2010
This review is from: Voulez-Vous (Audio CD)
Finally... it's here! The Voulez-Vous deluxe edition. It's great to have this and all those bonus tracks including for the VERY FIRST TIME... the FULL version of "Dreamworld".

However, the release would have been complete had the Spanish versions of "I Have A Dream", "Chiquitita" and "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!" been included. The Spanish version of Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! - Dame! Dame! Dame! - is absolutely fantastic and is somewhat different to the English version in that Agnetha's vocals are a lot more vibrant, loose and free!

Regardless of what Carl Magnus Palm says I'm sure there was room on the CD for inclusion of these three Spanish versions. So, I'm afraid I'm disappointed... as this release is not COMPLETE and not CONSISTENT with other deluxe editions.

Sorry Universal... not good enough!!!

Was a bit disapointed to see it's not the complete ABBA In Switzerland, they cut Kate Bush & Roxy Music... shame.

The ABBA in Switzerland is already available on YOU TUBE, so why are they calling it a rare TV performance.
I have to agree with Mahen, this isn't as good as it seems. Not to forget the bad efforts to date to remaster the ABBA catalogue.
The only thing I can see worth buying this for is the Dreamworld song.

I'm sorry but there is a big difference to something being available on You Tube and remastered on a commercial DVD! THE DVD content is brilliant!

In reply to an earlier post on 29 May 2010 23:27:54 BDT
Yes the dvd content looks great....but why oh why oh why have they omitted the fantastic track "Just a notion" again !! I expect it'll feature on the deluxe version released in 50 years time. Check it out on youtube if you're unfamiliar with this unreleased gem lying gathering dust in the archives.

MJ Shepherd - Just a notion is a great track but the versions available online via YOUTUBE or whatever have been put-together by fans using the available snippets. ABBA never completed this song in its entirety, and it would probably require the four getting back in the studio to finish it. Unlike JUST LIKE THAT which the scabs could have added to this deluxe edition, but chose not to. The CD in this deluxe edition is really boring, nothing to write home about. We all have 95% of this stuff already. YAWN!

What does JUST LIKE THAT from 1982 have in common with Voulez-Vous from 1979? No doubt that I also want to see a release of that wonderful song - but on this Deluxe Edition it wouldn't fit.

William says:
True, JUST LIKE THAT is not from the 1979 era. It is however, rumoured to be included in THE VISITORS DELUXE EDITION in 2011. But we shouldn't hold our breath because Benny and Bjorn have already said that they will never release this song (despite a full version being available).
