Now onto the Deluxe Edition reissue May 2011. The album has been remastered and sounds great. I am not an audiophile boffin by any stretch of the imagination but it all sounds good to me. The bonus tracks are welcome, especially the stereo mix extended version of 'On & On & On' which was originally only available in mono as the soundtrack to the video of the song.
The DVD includes some wonderful previously unreleased footage which has been thoughtfully compiled. Performances of songs from the German TV 'Show Express' capture Abba in their prime looking wonderful and the documentary footage of the Abba cover-shoot is fascinating viewing. The international record sleeve gallery is a tad repetitive as most of Abba's release used the same artwork around the world at this time.
One disappointment with this release was that it did not come in the hard, clear Deluxe Edition slip case that the previous releases did (Arrival, The Album, Voulez Vous). Instead it was shrink-wrapped and has a Deluxe Edition sticker plastered to the sleeve which looks cheap(are Universal trying to cut costs here?) and rather spoils the continuity with the previous releases.
Overall though an essential purchase for any Abba fan or for that fact anybody wanting to hear one of the bands finest albums.
I think there are three reasons why the most patient of us Abba fans would shell out their coin for another copy of "Super Trouper". One, the previously unreleased stereo extended version of "On and On and On" (for those not in the know it has an extra verse). Two, the bonus dvd with a stack of new to dvd footage. The third reason, sonic improvement with the album. Two out of three ain't bad. Here's the breakdown of what my ears and eyes tell me.
There's some great stuff on the dvd with 4 performances to playback from German and Swedish tv. A period documentary, what these days we would call an EPK (electronic press kit) made by their record label to promote the album. A newly created featurette on the album cover shoot edited together by Carl Magnus Palm from footage shot by Lasse Halstrom for the title track promo film. And that's it for new stuff. You also get two remastered music videos (why only two?) , two uk tv commercials and a sleeve gallery. With a running time of around 68 minutes it's not bad value. As always, there is so much more that could have been included on the dvd. The video for "On and On an On" re-edited so the audio matches the vision and the sound in stereo is just one I'd like to have seen added but nevertheless I'm thankful for the new footage from the archives.
Audio wise, we are worlds away from the 2005 Henrik Jonsson remaster released in the Complete Studio Recordings box set, in fact it sounds pretty dull. Honestly I actually prefer the 2005 remasters for this album and for "Voulez-Vous" (the 2010 remaster for that album is just awful).Read more ›
