Product Description & Reviews
This collection of the earliest ABBA sides didn't see a Stateside release until 1995, and it appears here with three bonus tracks including the Swedish-language version of Ring Ring ! Also here: Disillusion; People Need Love; Nina Pretty Ballerina; Rock 'N' Roll Band , and more. 15 tracks! Not issued in the U.S. until an early-'90s rerelease program, Abba's first album points toward the world-dominating pop of their later years. While the title cut has some vroom, others call for fine-tuning. The New Seekers-style anthem "People Need Love" offers the bizarre insistence that "People need love to make a good living"--at what?--and "Nina Pretty Ballerina" could be a pop song for toddlers. Not a bad thing, but not quite "Dancing Queen." And no, "Me and Bobby and Bobby's Brother" isn't a Springsteenian saga of felonious misadventure, but a jingling remembrance of playground days. The 24-bit remastered sound of this edition (which includes a Swedish version of "Ring Ring" among its three bonus tracks) does suggest the care Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus were already taking with production. Their discs, however, would soon achieve the truly Abba-esque. --Rickey Wright
