The third issue of the Agnetha Fan Magazine was published in June 1985 and started with a note that Agnetha had performed "One Way Love" at the Montreux Rock Festival.

The latest Abba cassette single to be added to my collection is the 1992 re-release of "Voulez-Vous" which also included the track "Summer Night City".
The single was released in the UK and Germany and was also available as a 7", 12" and CD. The CD single also included the tracks "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme (A Man After Midnight)" and "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do".
On the 29th October 1979 Abba released their compilation album "Abba Greatest Hits Vol. 2" which included the latest single "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme".
The compilation "Abba The Love Songs" was released in the UK in 1989 on the Pickwick Music record label. The album included 14 tracks which are described in the liner notes as "the bands best and most popular love songs".
I think the majority of the tracks fall into the category of love songs other than "Under Attack" and (especially) "So Long" which is pretty much the opposite of a love song.
