Before ABBA

Published July 10, 2013

This CD collects selected tracks from the four ABBA members' pre-ABBA careers: three tracks each by Hootenanny Singers, The Hep Stars, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Agnetha Fältskog and the duo of Björn Ulvaeus & Benny Andersson. (A note: 'Kvinnan i mitt liv', credited to Hootenanny Singers on this CD, is originally a Björn Ulvaeus solo single, which was later included on a Hootenanny Singers studio album.)

My understanding is that at least some of the ABBA members personally chose which of their tracks should be included. I myself had no involvement in this CD beyond writing the very brief liner notes in Swedish and English.

The CD was produced at the request of ABBA The Museum and is only sold in their shop and web shop.
