2017 ABBA releases

2017 ABBA releases

Nothing firm yet, but we should expect a solo piano album from Benny Andersson this year, another Frida guest appearance on an album by  Cuban trumpeter, Arturo Sandoval. Carl Magnus Palm top-to bottom  rewrite of his classic book, The Complete Recording Sessions is also coming out this in April.. Frida's first album, and Agnetha's third album (Som jag ar) are going to reissued on vinyl LP for Record Store Day 2017!.

  3. ABBA DEMOS TO BE PLAYED IN PUBLIC - BUT NOT THE ABBA VERSIONS!

    On Saturday 8th April, Carl Magnus Palm is launching his up-date of the ABBA Book, 'The Complete Recording Sessions'.

    The 'Event' will be in London.

    Benny & Bjorn allowed him to hear every ABBA Demo & 'Alternative Version', so he could describe them to 'The Fans',
    in his Book. However, 'The Fans' are not allowed to hear them for ourselves - not by ABBA anyhow.

    At the 8th April 'Event', Benny & Bjorn are allowing some of the ABBA Demos to be sung - only they will be sung 'Live',
    by 2 'Guest Singers' - whom I assume will be 2 Females(?).

    Benny & Bjorn are not allowing the original ABBA Demos to be played.

    They have also banned any recording equipment, (Mobile 'Phones too???), so that 'The Fans' cannot record the Demos
    in any way.

    The vast majority of ABBA Fans - who cannot attend 'The Event' - will have to make do with descriptions of the Demos,
    by those Fans who can attend.

    Or Carl Magnus Palm's written descriptions of them in his ABBA Book.

    I think that the entire idea is silly & not at all fair on the many Fans of ABBA, who have supported them for Decades.

    It has not gone down very well in this ABBA Group either - as you can see by the comments:

    I find the whole thing to be a source of great & increasing disillusionment.....
