For the month of September in my Abba calendar I have a great picture of Frida and Benny during the 1979 tour.
Whilst looking through my (boxes!) of old Abba bits and pieces I found a fold out poster promoting "Abba The Singles - a The First Ten Years" which included a short history of the group, a "Fact Files" section of each of the four, a group interview, the song lyrics to "The Day Before You Came" and a UK discography...
Issue number 3 of the International Abba Magazine was published in February 1982 - the editorial included news that Frida's solo album would be produced by Phill Collins, Bjorn's and his wife were expecting the birth of their baby and that Benny had recently been to England to buy two race horses called Secret Army and Hurtwood Lass.
The first major article in the magazine was a track by track review of Abba's latest album "The Visitors" ; having re-read this I agree with the majority of the review except the comment that "Two For The Price Of One" should have been released as a single as this is my least favourite track on the album.
Spread across eight pages the second half of the magazine includes pictures taken of Agnetha during the filming of the video for "One Of Us" quite a few of which I don't remember seeing before.
Here are some pictures of Agnetha's CD single "The Queen Of Hearts" from my collection. The single (which also included the track "Eyes Of A Woman") was released in 1998 and was included on the album "That's Me - The Greatest Hits".
The latest Abba 7" single to be added to my collection from Argentina is "Felicidad" (Spanish version of "Happy New Year") with a b-side of "Super Trouper". The single was released during November 1980 and reached number 5 in the charts.
