|Two decades after they last recorded together, ABBA remain as one of the most popular music acts of all time. Hits like Waterloo, SOS, Fernando, Dancing Queen, Take A Chance On Me, The Winner Takes It All and Super Trouper are as loved today as they were when the four Swedes ruled the charts worldwide.
But for all the brilliance of their music, ABBA are remembered as much for their glittery costumes and general 1970’s appearance – and perhaps this part of their legacy was never better exposed than in their groundbreaking music videos. Made at a time when MTV didn’t exist and very few artists produced ‘promo clips’ – as they were known at the time – ABBA have been hailed as pioneers in this field. Most of the videos were made by award-winning director Lasse Hallstrom , who today is well-known for movies such as My Life As A Dog, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and The Cider House Rules.
The Definitive Collection features every official ABBA video in one package for the first time, including three Spanish clips that have never been commercially released before. Two additional bonus selections from ABBA’s television appearances have also been included: When I Kissed The Teacher, and a performance of Dancing Queen at The Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm. All clips have been digitally remastered from the original negatives and synchronized with 24 bit remastered sound, making them look and sound better than ever before.
The Definitive Collection is an amazing journey through ABBA’s string of hits, and a wonderful celebration of their timeless appeal. Sit back and enjoy!
