"We wish you the best of luck" - Benny and Björn's original foreword

Published November 16, 2017

Recently, I had reason to revisit my original 1993 interviews with Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus for my book ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions (abbathecompleterecordingsessions.com). I was reminded what a privilege and what an extraordinary situation that was, sitting with them individually for hours on several different occasions, discussing this, that and the other from ABBA's recording career.

As if that in itself wasn't enough, they also wrote a great foreword to the book. They certainly didn't have to do that, but they did. What a thing to happen.

In case you haven't seen the foreword before, I thought I should post it here. It still makes me very happy to read it, and takes me back to a very special time in my life.

"To us it is particularly pleasing because it kills the myth of the 'Hit Factory'." The foreword Benny and Björn wrote for the original edition of ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions.
