Rave reviews for ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions

Published June 01, 2017

When I decided to put together a revised and expanded edition of ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions (abbathecompleterecordingsessions.com), I had one aim only: to satisfy those that were truly interested in an in-depth study of how and when ABBA's music was written and recorded. I had zero expectations on comments from the subjects of the book, much less that the book should receive much attention from the media.

Two months after the book was published, I'm happy to say that the reception of the book from  ABBA fans has been overwhelmingly positive - and I've had more accolades from ABBA members and the media than I had counted on. "A fantastic work," says ABBA's Björn Ulvaeus; "An exemplary display of research and writing," writes The Beat magazine; "The scope of the research is staggering, with a flowing narrative and a will to enlighten all the way through," writes Jan Gradvall. Seems I got it right this time!

I've just put together a page of the "professional" comments and reviews I've seen so far, which is available here. The fan reviews have been collected here.

And if you feel inspired to order the book after reading the reviews, it's available here: abbathecompleterecordingsessions.com
