5.0 out of 5 stars The most successful Abba compilation ever, 2 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Gold: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Fifteen years on from release, this album is still going strong, having recently seen of an attempt to replace it by the inferior "Number Ones".

Abba Gold was masterminded from Polydor UK in 1992 and is heavily weighted towards the UK hits. 18 of Abba's 19 Top 10 UK hits are here, the only omission being Summer Night City, left off in favour of perhaps their most well known small hit/album track, Thank You For The Music. The only other significant track missed off is UK Top 3 hit, Angeleyes, represented here by its double A-side, the international hit Voulez-Vous. That is the only concession to the non-UK market though.

Lay All Your Love On Me, not considered an "official" single and only released in a few countries, is included here on the grounds that it was a Top 10 UK hit (it also helped that Erasure had covered the track for their Abba-Esque EP earlier in 1992). In contrast, some big hits outside the UK, such as I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do (a small hit here) are thankfully left off.

If you don't already own this album (and there can't be many people left who don't) this is an essential purchase.

There's no 'thankfully' about it! They're crazy to lose all the following: SUMMER NIGHT CITY, SO LONG, I DO I DO I DO I DO I DO, UNDER ATTACK, HEAD OVER HEELS, THE VISITORS, RING RING, WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE, HONEY HONEY, THE DAY BEFORE YOU CAME and HASTA MANANA especially in favour of the completely sentimenatl THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC-only cos the title is apt for what they've given us-doesn't make it a great song though-in fact it was their last slice of cheese-thank God!

ScottPaul: You can find all those tracks and more on the 'More Abba Gold' album. Your cheese-board should be complete then!
