BENNY ANDERSSON - The Piano
– I have come to realise that the pieces I have chosen to play are an integral part of me. In a strange way, I feel like I am playing my memoirs.
May it be ABBA, CHESS, MAMMA MIA, a film score or music for the symphony orchestra. Benny Andersson’s melodies stand out as unique and his music has become an essential part of music history. Here we meet Benny at his beloved piano, listening to the music in its pure original form, the way it sounded when the melodies saw the light of day.
With this album – Piano, Benny is telling his story in his own way.
ABBA - The Album
First released in Scandinavia in December 1977, ABBA – The Album took the world by storm, hitting number one in countries such as Sweden, the UK and the Netherlands. It also entered the Top 15 in the US, becoming their highest-charting album in that country.
In celebration of the album’s original release four decades ago, Polar Music (via Universal Music Group) are releasing several tantalising anniversary reissues. They are as follows:
• A limited edition 7” box set featuring the three singles from the album on coloured vinyl, featuring the UK number one ‘The Name Of The Game’/ ‘I Wonder (Departure)’, the international Top Three smash ‘Take A Chance On Me’/ I’m A Marionette’ and the European Top Ten hit ‘Eagle’/’Thank You For The Music’
• The three 7” singles released separately as limited-edition picture discs.
• A half-speed mastered, 45rpm cut double-LP version of the original album. This rare and specialised technique transforms difficult to cut high-end frequencies into relatively easy to cut mid-range frequencies. The result is a cut with excellent high frequency response and very solid and stable stereo images. In short, half-speed mastering produced a master of the highest quality that enables the pressing plant to produce a superlative record.
This reissue of ABBA – The Album will also feature new liner notes by noted ABBA historian Carl Magnus Palm, detailing the story behind the album.
