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 U.S., becoming their highest-charting album in that country. Naturally, this being ABBA, the album also featured a number of major hit singles: "The Name Of The Game," "Take A Chance On Me" and "Eagle." The trio of hits and the album itself showcased how ABBA always tried to develop and challenge themselves, taking significant steps forward in terms of musical complexity, yet remaining catchy and compelling.

In celebration of the album's original release four decades ago Universal is releasing several tantalizing anniversary reissues including this half-speed mastered, 45rpm cut double-LP version. This rare and specialized 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.
