I grew up on the Swedish Group ABBA…Agnetha,Bjorn,Benny and Anni-frid…..just love them…their “Winner Takes it All” is one of my anthems….last year an ABBA clone group perfomed in Mumbai…Houseful…took the kids to it and show them what their Mom and Dad loved in School over 30 years ago! and still do….. we were all dancing in the aisles to their “Dancing Queen”
Guess What ?!….. ABBA made British chart history as their “Gold — Greatest Hits compilation” became the oldest album to reach number one. First released in 1992, the compilation has previously topped the charts on four separate occasions, but Sunday’s achievement was the first time an album had taken the number one spot after such a long interval.
“Gold” has sold a record 26 million albums and ABBA has sold over 350 million albums so far and yet sell 3 million every year although the group disbanded over twenty years ago
The Swedish group has enjoyed a resurgence on the back of the success of the film version of the hit musical “Mamma Mia !”, with the soundtrack topping the album charts two weeks ago.
Love you ABBA !
