ABBA To Celebrate ‘Waterloo’ 50th Anniversary.

ABBA has so many amazing tracks! Some of the best ones that come to mind are “Dancing Queen,” “Mamma Mia,” “Waterloo,” “Take a Chance on Me,” and “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight).”
Have you listened to all of these, or do you have any favorites among them?
A 50th anniversary celebration of ABBA’s second album Waterloo will be released in April.
ABBA were formed in Stockholm in 1972. They became one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of pop music, topping the charts worldwide from 1972 to 1982. ABBA sold over 375 million records worldwide. ABBA’s music has bridged many generation gaps over the years, and Waterloo is widely regarded as the best song to ever win the Eurovision Song Contest amongst many a fan and viewer alike.
The reissue
In March 1974, only a month before their historic win, the Swedish foursome released their second studio album, Waterloo. Now, the Waterloo album is being reissued as a Half-Speed mastered 45RPM 2LP Vinyl, along with a limited edition box set of the three vinyl singles originally released by Polar in 1974; the singles are also available as separate picture discs. Not only that, but they’re also releasing a unique 10-inch vinyl disc featuring “Waterloo” in four different languages and a new line of anniversary apparel taking it back to the 1970s.
