This is the first complete and authorized official photobook on ABBA, one of the greatest pop groups of the 20th century. The group has sold a stunning 400 million records and in some markets, the United Kingdom for example, they have sold more records than the Beatles. This 400-page large format book - in the format of a classical LP - contains more than 600 pictures, many never published before. All the classic images are included but also previously unseen pictures by top professional photographers. The book covers not only the stunning career of the group but also tells the story of the four members before ABBA - and what happened after the group broke up, including the international success of the musicals Chess and Mamma Mia. ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton on April 6, 1974, and the book is being launched in 2014 as a celebration of that 40 year anniversary international breakthrough.

ABBA was the biggest selling pop group of the Seventies. Between their first single in 1972, when the group was not yet called ABBA, and their final singles in 1982, ABBA recorded and released 98 unique songs. In addition they recorded versions of some of their biggest hits in Swedish, German, French, and Spanish; performed a number of songs in concert that were never released on record; and recorded a number of songs that didn't see the light of day at the time, but have been released from the archive the decades since the group 'took a break'; at the end of 1982. Everyone remembers ABBA's biggest hits - songs like 'Waterloo', 'Mamma Mia', 'Fernando', 'Dancing Queen', 'Take A Chance On Me', 'Chiquitita', and 'The Winner Takes It All' - but there are many gems to be found on the eight studio albums and 21 singles released during the group's lifetime. 'ABBA: Song by Song'; is a look at every single song by the Swedish supergroup, written by a life-long ABBA fan. Find out what inspired the songs, what went in to recording them, and their impact around the world in the 1970s and 80s and beyond.
