ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions was my very first ABBA book. The seeds were sown in 1990, when I realised that although the group were lauded as innovative recording artists and composers - even before the great revival that was yet to come - very little of what had been written about them dealt with the creative aspects of their work.

During the course of 1992 I started tentative research, and the bulk of the book was written in 1993. All four ABBA members, as well as their engineer Michael Tretow and many of their musicians, answered questions for the book. Björn and Benny wrote the foreword. ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions was published in the autumn of 1994 by the UK publisher Century 22. The book was published in tandem with the box set Thank You For The Music, which I also contributed to.

ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions is currently out of print, and I don't have any copies left. Used copies are often available through Amazon (see links to the right), so that might be an alternative if you want to buy the book. However, you may find their prices prohibitively expensive.

A revised, updated and expanded edition of the book is now in the works and will be published in March 2017. Read more here.
