ABBA - Gold (Greatest Hits)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
ABBA Gold originally released in 1992, this double vinyl set features nineteen of ABBA's most popular songs. An absolute brilliant tribute to the world's greatest pop band. This 40th Anniversary Edition celebrates the band's lasting legacy of timeless singles and the brilliant songwriting of Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus.
This was the first hits package prepared specifically for the CD format by the Swedish supergroup, and it's release marked the first time ABBA's music was made widely available again. It is still the simplest and most straightforward collection of the group's material that it is possible to buy.
Even though Polygram dedicated reasonable amounts of time and money to ABBA’s revitalization when ABBA Gold was first released, they still underestimated the amount of latent interest in the band’s music by the early ’90s, in part because that enthusiasm was rooted in marginalized communities. For gay men around the world, ABBA’s blend of naïve camp, indelible melodies, and genuinely wrenching melodrama proved captivating. They wrote anthems for dancing queens and men after midnight, inadvertently adopting language that would become essential to gay life.
Heavyweight double vinyl produced by Polydor Records in 2014.
