Product Description

'ABBA’s concerts in London at the end of the 70s became the stuff of legend. For a group that toured only a handful of times, these shows were a pinnacle, coming near the end of their touring life. By the time ABBA played London’s Wembley Arena in November 1979, they had spent five years in the public spotlight and that night they delivered some of the most exhilarating performances of their career. When ABBA took the stage, their experience and professionalism showed. Audiences and critics were astounded that ABBA could reproduce their studio sound live. The set covered highlights throughout their career and contained a rare performance of Agnetha’s ‘I’m Still Alive’, unreleased on any album. It is now time to hear Abba at the peak of their live performance again on ABBA – LIVE AT WEMBLEY ARENA.

This is a brave release by ABBA, who were far more comfortable in the studio; just last year Agnetha herself said she felt ABBA were not great live. Perhaps modesty influenced her remark, but she had a point. Apart from the unfortunate costumes and the dodgy choreography, the songs are a big sing. Agnetha and Anni-Frid had fabulous voices, but this repertoire would stretch anyone when performed live, and this is a generous selection of their music. In the event there is much to enjoy, and some of the live performances have far more energy and humour than the originals.

Frida was clearly the more confident performer, and is on terrific form, her vibrant resinous voice giving a real kick to the songs. While I hate to sound negative, there is no doubt that Agnetha sounds a little tentative at times, perhaps overwhelmed by the occasion. This brings rewards in terms of an appealing vulnerability, but it also means some of her vocals are a little fragile, sometimes almost inaudible. Ironically, Bjorn sounds in better vocal shape here than in the studio. I suspect the recording balance wasn't quite right for a cavernous venue like Wembley. It certainly does not favour vocals.The sound of their 77 tour (on the evidence of ABBA the Movie) was much better at capturing the voices, and was more slick (and probably over dubbed at a later stage). But perhaps it's more interesting to have these live performances available rather those closer to the studio sound. The effect here is grittier, faster paced and disarmingly genuine. It's a bit like an ABBA karaoke, except it really IS them singing!

What a wonderful treat to finally hear a full live concert from Abba. One of my biggest regrets is that I never got to see them live in concert and this has to be the next best thing. Who would have thought we would get this after 35 years?
I first played the CD through our home cinema system set on "concert hall " mode and WOW it just blew me away, the atmosphere of Wembley arena that November night in 1979 is brought back after all these years. I could close my eyes and feel the excitement of the crowd as Abba appear on stage and later on my heart skipped a beat when the crowd shouted for an encore.I admit it brought tears to my eyes a number of times!
As others have mentioned this album is completely different from any of their studio recordings. The raw energy comes through and Abba prove they can deliver an amazing live sound and rock with the best of them.
Stand out tracks for me include Bjorn and Frida belting out Why did it have to be me, oh to have that on DVD would be wonderful! Agnetha's emotional "I'm still Alive" is a real treat to hear for the first time in all its glory rather than a you tube fan recording. Benny is a master of the keyboards on Intermezzo no 1,and Fridas dramatic performance of Money Money Money is also a highlight. The whole concert just builds and builds with song after song especially the high tempo numbers like Hole in your Soul, Summer Night City , Does your mother know and Waterloo you feel quite breathless after listening to it all!
Imagine doing that night after night, no wonder Abba didn't tour very often!
The CD also sounds great in the car and every time I play the download on my phone through earphones I notice something different every time I hear it. Give yourself a treat- play this loud and wallow in the nostalgia of it all.

35 years in the waiting for this release and I'm delighted its finally been released. After the multiple issues of GOLD its a pleasure to have something completely new. For the casual fan, don't expect the pristine production of an ABBA studio recording because it isn't a part of this show. The original concert from 10th November 1979 at Wembley is raw. It has flaws. The voices are different and the music is less intricate but, its live. The voices build in strength during the concert as does the music. From the tranquillity of the shows intro, Gammal Fabadpsalm to the powerhouse finale this is everything I hoped for and more. The only prerequisite of buying this is to know a little about the group and the music. There's an abundance of hits and some great album tracks. A few highlights for me personally would be the wonderful frolicking duet "Why Did It Have To Be Me" (Originally on 1976's "Arrival" album) performed by Bjorn and Frida. The keyboard gymnastics of "Intermezzo No 1" ( originally on the 1975 "ABBA" album) performed by Benny, and the new song from this tour, co-written and performed by Agnetha "I'm Still Alive". There isn't a bad track or something about each track I've not licked. "Money Money Money" comes off very well, as does "Summer Night City". "Rock Me" is as raw as the day it was born and to finally hear songs like "If It Wasn't For The Nights" , "S.O.S" and "As Good As New" as ABBA performed them in concert rather than on some crackly old bootleg is amazing. Find yourself a spare couple of hours, turn the lights down and the volume up and enjoy an evening with ABBA because nobody will ever get the chance to see them in concert again.
