  1. Seems the exciting news is...

    New lyric videos.

    "Chiquitita" premiering this Friday.
     
  2. Underwhelming…

  3. I wonder if they'll do a nature segment in the show and merge Tiger, Eagle and Bumblebee?
     
  4. I'd rather they continued uploading those 4K remaster videos

  5. I saw a chart thingy from 1982 yesterday that showed Under Attack sat at #26 for four consecutive weeks, a couple of which were due to a 'freeze' after Christmas.

    I wonder if, like One of Us was rumoured to have sold enough to reach #1 for a week during the previous year's 'no chart' week(s), given that it stuck at or around #26 so long, UA might have crept into the Top 20 had there been a chart?

  6. Heads up Abba remix fans - new as yet unnamed Matt Pop mix due on 1/4 -

    as ever it’ll no doubt be available for a week at most and I’ll probably forget about it and mutter a lot afterward!
     
  7. Ladies, ABBA - The Albums updated boxset:

  8. That box cover design though. The original black with shiny blue was so pretty.
     
  9. Seems odd to exclude those, what, 7-8 other B-sides/orphan tracks rather than expand the 'bonus' disc to accommodate them. Cassandra, Dream World, and especially I Am the City does not deserve this erasure.

  10. It's matching the bonus vinyl in the original vinyl albums box set (the big silver box) - one of the really annoying things about the vinyl revival is CDs being made to match the same length instead of having more tracks. I'll stick to the original CD box as I've got enough copies of Voyage anyway.

    That said, why am I tempted by the picture discs? Do I need them on picture disc? No. Will I regret not getting them? Maybe.

  11. There is so much missing from that set.
    The whole of Gracias Por La Musica & Live At Wembley are missing.

    Cassandra, the folk medley, You Owe Me One, Hej Gamle Man, Dream World, I Am The City, Crazy World, Santa Rosa, Ah Vilka Tider, Merry Go Round, 12 inch dance remix of Voulez-Vous, extended mix of On & On & On, Ring Ring single remixes, Waterloo alternate version, the German recordings….

    What a missed opportunity.

    I’m hoping the mastering is decent but also thinking it will just be a rehash of The Albums/CSR box. Though interestingly, Ring Ring & Waterloo seem to be presented with their original Swedish tracklistings.

  12. Luckily I already have a vinyl box set and the expanded CD´s, so I will give this a miss. Hoping for something more exiting later in the year.
     
  13. I was really hoping that they’d do what they planned to do in 2014 and release the Deluxe Editions in one set. The mastering on those (with the exception of The Visitors, which was a mess) was the most consistent of any of the reissues and the expanded tracks were really thorough.

  14. I was hoping they would do a new boxset with Voyage that had everything on their era-specific disc. Meaning the Voulez-Vous with Dreamworld, The Visitors with I Am the City etc.
