ABBA GOLD was first released on September 21, 1992. With more than 32 million sales worldwide, ABBA Gold has emerged as the group’s all-time greatest success. As the 2nd highest selling album of all time in the UK, it has spent over 1055 weeks on the Official UK album chart making it the longest running album in the Official Albums Chart Top 100.

Including 19 of ABBAs biggest hits like “Dancing Queen”, “Knowing Me, Knowing You”, “Take A Chance On Me”, “Mamma Mia” and “The Winner Takes It All” to mention a few it has become a staple amongst fans for three decades.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary, ABBA Gold will be released on the following formats on 23rd September:

  • BRAND NEW - 2LP Picture Disc: heavyweight vinyl, housed in die-cut gatefold sleeve
  • BRAND NEW - Gold Cassette, also available on black cassette
  • Gold 2LP: gold 2 x 180g vinyl, previously available

One of the biggest success stories in the history of recorded popular music – that is a more than apt description of the glorious compilation album ABBA Gold, which has now been a part of our lives for 30 years. Originally issued in September 1992, the album brought together ABBA’s most famous songs, offering a journey through everything that makes us love the songs Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida created. There’s the fun and the excitement, the melancholy and the heartache, and, above all, an irresistible celebration of the sheer joy of making music.

When ABBA Gold was originally released, it had been 10 years since ABBA last recorded together, and this splendid album now reintroduced them to both their old fans and those who hadn’t previously realized how great their music was. Here was irrefutable proof in the shape of 19 pop masterpieces: ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)’, ‘The Winner Takes It All’, ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You’, and all their other classic hits.

ABBA Gold immediately became a success of unimaginable proportions, helping new generations discover the group’s music. In the UK, for instance, the album has returned to the number one spot several times, holds the record for number of weeks spent on the charts – more than 1,000 – and is the second-biggest selling album of all time. ABBA Gold’s global sales are more than 32 million copies. It is no exaggeration, then, to say that the album laid the groundwork for the elevation of ABBA into the pantheon of timeless pop where they always belonged.

Happy Birthday, ABBA Gold!
