Australian Bandstand Special included on the DVD !!!
Hot on the heels of the well-received Deluxe Edition of The Visitors, November 2012 will see another release in the ABBA Deluxe Edition series. This time the 1975 album simply entitled ABBA, featuring classic hits such as ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘SOS’ and ‘I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do’, will receive the Deluxe treatment.
The first disc in this 2-disc package is a CD, which features the original album plus three bonus tracks, all of which have been remastered especially for this release. The second disc is a DVD, featuring 60 minutes of previously unreleased television performances, including the complete 1976 television special ABBA In Australia – the export version of the famous The Best Of ABBA special, which had higher viewer ratings than the moon landing in Australia. 6 of the 12 songs in the special are performances of tracks from the ABBA album. In addition, there are three songs from the 1975 television special Made In Sweden – For Export, along with two fab performances from the BBC archives: ‘SOS’ on Seaside Special, first broadcast in 1975, and ‘Mamma Mia’ on Top Of The Pops (1976). To round off the DVD there are two vintage television commercials, one for the Australian hits album The Best Of ABBA (along with the other albums released by ABBA in Australia up to that point) and the other for ABBA’s Greatest Hits album.
The package also includes a 24-page booklet featuring an extensive essay on the making of the album, for which ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus have contributed fresh insights and stories.
Don’t miss out on this Deluxe Edition of ABBA – featuring the hits that made Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida household names all over the world!

6th September 2012 – Madame Tussauds is creating one of the world’s most successful music acts, ABBA, to be unveiled at the London attraction this autumn.
Famous for their catchy lyrics and bold costumes, the four band members – Agnetha, Benny, Björn and Anni-Frid – will add a colourful dimension to the attraction as they take up a short term residency in the Music Zone before making their way to Madame Tussauds' attractions around the world.
ABBA will be captured in the iconic style from their 1975 video for ‘SOS’. Agnetha and Anni-Frid will be wearing replicas of the popular yellow and blue feline themed outfits teamed with pristine white knee-high leather boots. Benny and Björn will wear outrageous white seventies outfits encrusted with diamantes and sequins, finished off with flares and platform boots.
Stockholms Auktionsverk has the great pleasure this autumn of auctioning a large collection of high-class clothing and accessories from the wardrobe of Frida, one of the members of ABBA.
As one of the world’s best known and hugely popular pop groups, neither ABBA nor Anni-Frid Lyngstad Reuss/Frida needs any further introduction. Despite the fact that ABBA broke up in 1983, public fascination with the group and its members has not diminished and we anticipate great interest in this special department. This auction offers a selection of attractive items of exceptionally high quality.
Since starting in autumn 2009, Fashion & Lifestyle has been a big success. Here you can find clothes and accessories from every period of the 20th century and right up to the present day.
“Each season we notice more and more that the modern woman attaches great importance to expressing her personality through her own distinctive dress style – and there is nothing better than finding it at Stockholms Auktionsverk’s Fashion and Lifestyle auction,” says specialist Beata af Donner.
In addition to Frida’s Collection there is the usual range of beautiful creations, handbags, suitcases and jewellery from leading French fashion houses such as Balmain, Dior, Chanel, Pucci, Gucci, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, YSL etc. Fashion & Lifestyle with Frida’s Collection at Stockholms Auktionsverk
