I used to have them all up until Arrival. I was a really big fan when they were still going and still like a lot of there stuff 25 years later. The thought of the blonde in that catsuit still makes hot under the collar, or thereabouts!

Haven't got any Abba albums myself (my wife has).

Abba were excellent at what they did and did some brilliant toons.

I DO however, have the metal Tribute to Abba, which I think I've mentioned somewhere else on this board.  Its very, er, unusual, I think is the word I'm looking for.  Some good stuff, some really good stuff, and, some completely shite stuff - e.g. the Summer Night City cover.  Crap.

Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life
All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

Track Listing from Amazon:

1. Summer night city - Therion
2. Thank you for the music - Metalium
3. Gimmie gimmie gimmie - Sinergy
4. Money money money - At Vance
5. Voulez vous - Lefay, Morgana
6. SOS - Paradox
7. Chiquitita - Spiral Tower
8. Take a chance on me - Rough Silk
9. Eagle - Sargant Fury
10. One of us - Flowing Tears
11. Waterloo - Nation
12. Super trooper - Custard
13. Knowing me knowing you - Tad Morose
14. Dancing queen - Glow

Fave track is Eagle by Sargant Fury.  Unfortunately, Sargant Fury are no more - I'd have liked to get some of their stuff.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Summer night city by Therion is complete and utter shite.  The rest ranges from listenable to quite bloody good.

I've only got 1 LP (the one with them all on a park bench, and the Abba Gold CD.

We play Waterloo to end our gigs!

How sad!
