New Agnetha album a big success...

The new Agnetha album, has been a big success, showing that if you do actually promote an album, that it might succeed... Of course, it's still early, and the album may not have any legs.
So far it's been top ten in a number of countries.

The video for the single...

Agnetha Faltskog-When You Really Loved Someone, Universal Verve, March  2013 international download only release...

A new Agnetha single is out. It just appeared out of nowhere. ...Well without prior notice. We knew she was recording an album-but there had no indication that all the work had finished on that yet. Then again, it doesn't take forever to record a ten songs.. Apparently there will be no physical CD release for the single. . The song appears to have been written by Jorgen Elofsson, the cowriter of "A Moment Like This" and a few other hits. Fans have been positive about the first single released so far...

Three other singles have been released though these three have not been released in all territories..

Abba-the Albums website is back!...

ABBA-The Albums
On May 7th, 2013, my original ABBA review  site, called ABBA-The Albums was taken down by my host, Tripod.  The site had been hosted by them since 2001.  I originated  ABBA-The Albums  on WebTV in 1999.
  Just as mysteriously in July 2013, the site came back up..

Tripod has yet to explain why they took it down.  Customer Service does not appear to one of their concerns. The site is a complete discography and review guide to everything ABBA has recorded individually or as a group.
