ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions at 25

Published October 21, 2019

Did you know that October 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions (abbathecompleterecordingsessions.com)? The original edition was published in October 1994 and, although it seems like just a while ago, a quarter of a century has actually passed since then.

As many of those reading this will be aware, a thoroughly revised and expanded edition, with at least four times as much text was published in 2017 (you can basically forget about the original book). Sales have been ticking along since then, and now I don't have that many copies left.

If you haven't got it yet, I strongly advise you to buy as soon as possible, before they're all gone. It's far from certain ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions will be reprinted (there's a dedicated but very small audience for a book like this), and definitely not in this attractive presentation, with a snazzy dust cover and all the rest of it.

Perhaps you'd like to treat someone or even yourself with the book for Christmas? If you live outside Europe, I would advise you to order before mid-November if you want it delivered in time for the holidays.

The book has attracted some really good reviews - even ABBA's Björn Ulvaeus talked about it in glowing terms in an interview - and the fans have been raving about it. Forget that I wrote it: the contents will interest every dedicated ABBA fan.

What's in a name and how did ABBA get theirs?

Published October 03, 2019

If you've read ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions, you may recall there were a number of "sidebars" - additional articles focusing on certain aspects - throughout the book. ABBA On Record (abbaonrecord.com) will have such articles as well.

Right now I'm working on a detailed article that will explore how the group changed their name from Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Anni-Frid to ABBA. Unfortunately, so many contradictory accounts have been doing the rounds over the years that it's impossible to arrive at a definite truth, but I will at least be able to tell the story in some detail. It's this kind of challenge that makes my job so interesting - I hope you will enjoy reading the article in the finished book.
