Mamma Mia! ABBA Reissuing “Gold” Compilation

with one comment

For the ABBA fan who just can’t get enough and has to have it all – and judging by the amount of quality reissues for a band that’s been defunct for decades, there are a lot of such fans out there – here’s something else to add to your collection. ABBA will reissue bestselling compilation ABBA Gold on November 29 with a DVD featuring previously unreleased material.

With sales of over 28 million copies worldwide, ABBA Gold has been one of the highest watermarks of the Swedish pop hitmakers’ success since its release in 1992. This version will include the original 19-track album alongside a DVD featuring all the videos for all 19 songs, newly remastered. Five bonus clips will be included: four “split-screen” versions of ABBA videos (to show off the remastering job, presumably), and a rare cartoon version of “Money, Money, Money” produced by Australian company Reg Grundy Productions (American game show fans might remember them as the company behind ’80s game shows $ale of the Century and Scrabble). The set will also include new liner notes by noted ABBA author Elisabeth Vincentelli.

This new edition has a worldwide release date of November 29 (no pre-order links are up yet). Check out the track list after the jump.
