    It looks like Agnetha was distracted by something in the last pic.

    I like that distracted look. She's such a gorgeous woman!

    That can be possible, but the differences are not as big as you may think...you can hear it with headphones, but the frequency range seems to be mostly identical. I have to check again when I will find the time.

    Yes, I've read about it over the years, thanks for the tip Jrr. Eventually I'd like to track one down :)

    I think only the Japan ARRIVAL CD (Discomate and Polydor, two slightly different masterings, both sound great) is better, compared to the West German Polydor releases. It sounds a bit more clear and sparkling, maybe a better tape ???
    Now we should try to create the ultimate "Best-ABBA-on-CD" collection - what do you think ???

    They are from the UK so I got one off of eBay and I think it was a steal at around $65 for a 5 album set and the records were NM. Let us know what you think if you get a copy. The sequencing of the songs is well done imo. Older mixed in with newer, so it's a fun listen.

    I really love that 5 LP set from UK !!! It sounds fantastic and covers all essential stuff before "The Visitors" I think :)

    You are correct. If I'm not mistaken, I think there are tracks from The Visitors. And the quality is at least as good as the parent albums in my $400 vinyl box set, if not better. It's a fantastic compilation.

    I have that as well and enjoy it. It has most of their original catalog on it.

    From what I've heard the cd was not mastered the same as the vinyl. The vinyl version is supposed to be much better.

    That's true. Totally different masterings.

    No tracks from The Visitors on the Reader's Digest 5LP box so I'm afraid you are mistaken - yes it did come out in 1981, but before The Visitors was released, so technically they should have called it The Best of Abba 1972-1980, as it only goes up to the Super Trouper album.
