BTW, Chris, there already is an ABBA box set. And it has sold very well. It came out in 1995, I think. And the musical "Mamma Mia," which is based on Abba songs, is a major smash hit on Broadway and on the road.
There have also been a couple of ABBA tribute albums.
I think Benny and Bjorn wrote some very great pop songs. They are very melodic, and I think they deserve some praise.
Also, they were music video innovators. The short films they did with Lasse Halstrom are classics.
Precisely. ABBA are still hugely successful, and revered as one of the great acts of the 1970s. The trouble with some people on here is that they can't see any good in anything apart from Beatles, other 60s acts and extra-heavy rock. Narrow-minded hypocrites. I'm not sure I want to stick around such people.
