About this deal

So, just because ABBA's Budget Albums were not allowed into the Main Chart, it does not mean that they were not selling. The album spent 61 (non-consecutive) weeks in the top 10 and topped the British chart 5 times, most recently for two weeks in 2008 following release of the motion picture Mamma Mia! This should really be listened to along with the first ABBA Gold collection, as the two complement each other and will run you much less than a box set will. The UK saw a 30th Anniversary Edition released in 2004 with a gold-coloured sleeve cover with black writing, rather than the normal black sleeve with gold writing.

I bought this CD as members of my family had recently watched Mama Mia the movie and one of my daughters liked a few songs that were not on Abba gold V(1)such as "I do, I do " and " Last Summer " and they were on Abba Gold Vol(2). I know Abba made some happy, joyful music (Dancing Queen, Waterloo etc) but also I think some of it is actually very sad like the divorced themed Knowing Me Knowing You, The Winner Takes It All, Our Last Summer, Slipping Through My Fingers, etc.The Swedish foursome’s follow-up anthology combines their biggest remaining singles with assorted rarities and alternate mixes.

I think that by this time in their history both marriages had split up, and the music became much richer and more personal. Polydor got lucky since a second wave of interest in ABBA was occuring right when they released the collection. While Gold: Greatest Hits had showcased nineteen of the group's biggest and most recognisable hits, this left out a number of other sizeable international hits, such as " Summer Night City", " I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" and " Angeleyes". ABBA Gold' and 'More ABBA Gold' never got 30,500 Sales, (each), added in from 'Forever Gold', the 1996 CD, which has both 'Gold's in it.album, MAS ORO has a similar color scheme to More ABBA Gold but obviously a very different song lineup . I believe that music becomes more intimate if it is based on life's experiences and these two albums always make me think about what might have been. Voyage was preceded by the release of two singles, one of which - Don't Shut Me Down - landed at Number 9, giving ABBA their first Top 10 hit on the Official Singles Chart since 1982. The Australian release featured the European track list, not the Australasian track list on the 1999 issue. It is bad enough, that the 3 'Hits' Albums, have UK Sales added in, from other UK Queen Compilations.

As these licences were renewed every three years, between 1989 (when PolyGram acquired Polar) and 1992 all of these licences had expired. The original 1992 release included an edited version of " Voulez-Vous" and the US Promo Edit of " The Name of the Game".

In August, 2019, Gold: Greatest Hits became the longest-running top 100 album of all time, spending 900 weeks on the UK Albums Chart. ABBA reminds me of some outside artists who make up their own world and there is our world and then there's ABBA's world. Lets be honest a good pop band that made good songs that appealed to all ages and the record company wanted to make a few shillings from there back catalogue. As " I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" and " Ring Ring" had been added to the domestic version of Gold: Greatest Hits, these, along with "Lovelight" and "Cassandra", were removed.

As of July 2021, "Gold" became the first album to reach 1000 weeks on the Official Charts in United Kingdom with pure sales of 5.Also included are several B-sides and album tracks, plus one previously unreleased track; "I Am the City", dating back to ABBA’s final recording sessions in 1982. It also has a couple of their better non-album b-sides ("Lovelight", "I Wonder (Departure)") as well as an unreleased track ("I Am the City"). Non ABBA Gold songs includes Ring Ring, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, Eagle, Summer Night City, The Visitors, The Day Before You Came plus the rest of the album tracks and non album B-Sides such as Happy Hawaii, Lovelight, Elaine and Should I Laugh Or Cry.
