NOTES ON SOME OF THE CD BONUS TRACKS:

10. Eagle (Single Edit)

This edit of Eagle was first released as a single A-side in 1978. It was remastered for CD in 1999, when the CD singles box set Singles Collection 1972*1982 was put together. However, at that time a new edit was actually created, although it aimed to sound like the original edit. For ABBA - The Album - Deluxe Edition, a tape of the original edit has been located and remastered for the first time.

11. Take A Chance On Me (Live Version; Alternate Mix)
The live recording of 'Take A Chance On Me' has been released in three different mixes: first as the B-side of 'I Have A Dream' in December 1979; then in an alternate mix when the 'I Have A Dream' single was released in Canada and Australia; and finally in a completely new mix on the ABBA Live album in 1986. It is that second mix, from the Canadian and Australian singles, that now appears on CD for the first time. Unfortunately, however, the mix was not available in the Polar Music tape archives, and neither the Canadian nor the Australian record companies had kept their master tapes, or at least they were unable to locate them for us. So for the ABBA - The Album - Deluxe Edition, this track had to be mastered from a vinyl single.
