The Essential Collection

Published April 06, 2012 | MORE DETAILS »

This double-CD collects all of ABBA's single A-sides as originally planned and conceived by their record company, Polar Music, along with a few tracks that were single hits in significant markets, plus a few album tracks for which videos were made: these videos are on the DVD version of The Essential Collection, released in tandem with the CD. The CDs and the DVD are also released as a Limited Edition triple-disc set.

For this release, I provided the track listing and edited and updated the liner notes I originally wrote for The Definitive Collection. The liner notes are featured in a 12-page booklet.


The Essential Collection. Projected release dates: Germany and Austria: May 21, 2012; rest of the world: September 3, 2012. Catalogue number: Polar 00602527993720.
