An actual ABBA member offers his opinion about ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions

Published May 17, 2017

Björn Ulvaeus mentions my latest ABBA book in an interview in today's Aftonbladet (Swedish newspaper):

"Carl Magnus Palm has recently published a substantial book in English about all of ABBA's recordings and studio days....
– That weighty bible is a fantastic work. That someone can set all that down in writing, says Björn Ulvaeus. I can only remember ten per cent of everything that's in the book. It's bloody great documentation."

The fascinating story behind the book design

Published May 11, 2017

I've mentioned many times how much I owe my ace designer Maria Nicholas in making the revised and expanded edition of ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions a reality. In fact, every now and then I pick the book up simply to marvel at how great it looks - forget about my writing, it's just such a beautiful object!

Maria has just published a very interesting presentation of the philosophy and method behind her design of the book, which I thought was truly fascinating. The presentation is here, and I urge you to read it as I believe you will find it interesting.

It's now been a little over a month since the revised and expanded edition of ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions was published, so I thought it might be a good time to collect some of the comments and messages about the book, made both in social media and to me personally.

Some examples: "It is truly a joy both to look at and to read", "Enjoying the book so much!!", "It is very likely the best ABBA book ever - and your biggest success as a writer", "The bible for every serious ABBA fan", and "I already know that your book will be amongst the top 5 most loved and treasured books of my life."
