Deluxe Super Trouper!

ABBA-Super Trouper Deluxe Edition CD/DVD, International release May 9, 2011

The fourth in a  series of Deluxe Edition ABBA CD/DVD. They feature previously released music, the original album plus relevant B-sides and/or foreign language tracks. Also included is a  a DVD of TV performances and other relevant video material. . 

The audio tracks have been  remastered yet again for this release,  The disc includes a never before available  stereo mix of the original, full length version of "On And On And On", previously only available in mono. All the other audio tracks have been previously released.  The  television performances of tracks from the Super Trouper album,  have been not released on DVD before. Included is a rare vintage documentary Words And Music, produced by Polar Music , which features the group talking specifically about the Super Trouper album in 1980.


Also included is a never before released  featurette, entitled "Somewhere In The Crowd There’s You – On Location With ABBA". It  compiles footage that was shot on the night when ABBA and their album designer, Rune Söderqvist, assembled a crowd of friends and circus performers to create the spectacular photograph featured on the Super Trouper album sleeve. The footage is not narrated, it's not a documentary, but it is  interesting. ABBA stands out oddly, because they are dressed out to the nines  in a simple but elegant white costumes, and they are the  only people not moving around  or performing.  This archive footage has been sitting in the archives for three decades without ever being made public – until now. You get the feeling that Rune had big ideas for this cover, and that somehow things just didn't come out totally how he envisioned. (His original idea had been to shoot the cover outside in downtown London. )

Also  included are the much released original promo clips for ‘Super Trouper’ and ‘Happy New Year’ – both of which feature footage shot on the “album sleeve night” – to give the viewer further glimpses of what took place that night. The sequences included in the promo clips, shot by director Lasse Hallström, are completely different to the footage in the feature, filmed by a separate film crew. The promo clips are the newly restored and remastered versions, out of which only ‘Super Trouper’ has been released before (on last year’s ABBA Gold CD/DVD Special Edition); the restored ‘Happy New Year’ is seen for the first time.
