Everybody loves ABBA--and this is a unique in-depth study of the places, events, and characters that inspired their enduring catalog of songs.

ABBA traces the complete story of the Swedish supergroup through their famous tracks, from their world-conquering 1970s disco beginnings, with modern classics such as "Voulez-Vous," "Angel Eyes," "Chiquitita," "Does Your Mother Know," "Gimme Gimme Gimme," and "I Have A Dream" through to the more reflective 1980s, with "The Winner Takes It All" marking a watershed in their output. It features every ABBA song, including all of the numbers from the hit movie Mamma Mia Here We Go Again and the new material released in 2018--the first new ABBA songs in 35 years. Fully illustrated throughout, the glorious photographs form a sublime gallery of ABBA's most dazzling costumes.
Reissued and updated in a new format.
