Update 15th March 2011

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

As you’ll probably know by now a Deluxe Edition of ABBA”s album “Super Trouper” is due out in May 2011.  Like previous Deluxe Editions this 2 disc set will contain a cd and dvd.  The cd will contain 5 bonus tracks including the stereo mix of the full length video version of “On And On And On” while the dvd will contain a never before released feature.

With this new edition coming up I thought it was a good idea to focus the next few updates on updating information and pictures for the “Super Trouper” album as well as singles taken from that album.

For now I’ve updated information and pictures for

The Piper

As far as I know “The Piper” has only been released in Poland as an A-side (flexi) single; in most countries it was released as B-side to the “Super Trouper” single.

Although regular vinyl singles have been released in Poland, among ABBA collectors this country is probably more known for releasing many different songs as “flexi” disc.  Often those singles would contain the same track but containing different pictures on the discs.  Another curiosity about these flexi’s is the use of non ABBA related pictures.  It’s almost if those flexi’s were used to promote the Polish way of life, Polish culture and its flora and fauna.

Update 26th February 2011

Today I’ve added info for the following cd single

ABBA – Waterloo [Alternate Mix]

This cd single was a gift from the International ABBA Fan Club to celebrate their 25th Anniversary.  Members of the fan club received this cd single together with magazine no. 105 in December 2010.

This cd single contains an alternate version of “Waterloo” which was only available before as part of the box set “ABBA – The Complete Studio Recordings”.

It’s not the first time a fan club has released some rare recordings.

In 1988 the Dutch fan organisation “ABBA Around The World” released a 7.29 minutes interview with the members of ABBA.  This release was a 7″ blue flexi disc and was available in three different cover sleeves.  More info and pictures will follow in another update of the website.

In 2005 the International ABBA Fan Club released a cd single for their 20th Anniversary.  This cd single included “Super Trouper” and “On And On And On”; both live version taken from the “Dick Cavett meets ABBA” tv show.   Information and pictures of this cd single can be found here.
