Part 8 (of 8): THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC ENTERS THE CHARTS

The release of the box set was preceded by a four track promo single, which included Dream World, Put On Your White Sombrero, Just Like That (the snippet featured in the medley) and Thank You For The Music (Doris Day Mix, [subsequently retitled Doris Day Version]).

In Sweden, Dream World was heavily promoted on the radio, and very few people interested in pop music could have escaped the information that an ABBA box set was about to be released. Accordingly, upon release it entered the Swedish charts at number 17, which must be extremely unusual for an expensive box set. It also reached number 76 on the Australian charts. By March 2003 worldwide sales were approximately 300,000 copies; I don't know how many copies have been sold since.
