ABBA - The Essential Collection

 Betyg

Review2062_abba_-_the_essential_collection

This brand new ABBA collection includes all the hits and more on 2CDs and 1DVD. It's available in three different versions - a double-CD, a DVD, and a Limited Edition package featuring the two CDs, the DVD and an illustrated 28-page booklet.
The DVD features remastered versions of all the official ABBA promo clips including two previously unreleased videos: Conociéndome, Conociéndote and Gracias por la música (Spanish versions of Knowing Me, Knowing You and Thank You For The Music).

So, it's a very good collection for anyone wanting an ABBA compilation, but I do have to wonder what sort of person wakes up thinking "There just aren't enough Abba compilations around - the world needs another one". There are so many ABBA compilations that it's hard to understand why anyone would think its a great idea to release another - surely most people already own one, and if they do then there's little reason to buy another. The recent Deluxe edition reissues of the original albums on the other hand were an excellent idea, but another compilation really is hard to be excited about.

This release features all the hits (as do virtually all the other compilations) including nine UK number one hit singles as well as a number of other tracks. With 39 tracks over the two CDs then its good value if you haven't got an ABBA compilation already.

If you don't already own an ABBA compilation then this is a good one to get. If you have one already then I'd give this a miss and instead think about getting the deluxe editions of the original albums instead.
