still a good excuse to have this...,
By A Customer
This review is from: Definitive Collection (2cd) (Audio CD)
some fans might think this is overkill - another compilation? we already have "gold", "more gold", "thank you for the music" and "the singles collection" what do we need another one for?
"the definitive collection" puts abba's singles in an international perspective - some tracks released exclusively to one or two territories(ie: honey honey - which was released in the u.s. after waterloo and peaked at 30 and was released as a single as well in germany). the cd also contains liner notes by carl magnus palm - the single most authoritative "abba historian" todate.
to sweeten the pot: 2 bonus tracks: the us remix of "ring ring" appearing originally in the us version of waterloo and the extended dance version of voulez-vous. while there's no certainty that this would be the last compilation released of the group's hits, it's still worthwhile having - until another one comes along...who knows there might be one featuring "just like that" a few years from now?
