Piano

Benny is releasing a new album on September 29th called Piano. I must say, I am very excited for this CD since Benny's taking ABBA songs, as well as many other songs from various projects he and Bjorn have worked on, and performing them solo on the piano and I think it's absolutely lovely.  :)  I hope to be able to get this album for myself and I'm sure everyone's going to enjoy it!

Thank you Eleonore!

Today I received a surprise package in the mail from my best friend ABBAFan Seventies. :)  Inside were several gifts, among them a wonderful, emotional poem written by Eleonore, and four singles:  Super Trouper/The Piper, Does Your Mother Know/ Kisses Of Fire, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)/The King Has Lost His Crown, and my first non-ABBA single (ABBA related nonetheless), Never Again/Just For The Fun.  I'm absolutely thrilled to have these four singles as well as the lovely poetry book, thank you so much Eleonore! <3

La question c'est voulez-vous

At a recent convention that I attended (honestly the best convention I've attended so far!), there was a vendor selling many vintage records, calendars, and the like, most of them from his own collection I'm pretty sure.  While looking through one of the boxes containing records, I found Voulez-Vous, available for only $1! :D At first I didn't think I should get it since I don't really have a way of using it other than have it on display (we do have a record player but I don't know how to use it xD ), but it's an ABBA album that is one of my favorites, and it was only one dollar!  So, I bought it and I couldn't be happier. :D



The ABBA dolls with my new album. :)

I'm very happy with the condition that the album came in.  I don't know much about the sound quality because I can't test that out at the moment, but the case itself looks to be really good.  (I accidentally broke the casing a little bit when trying to take photos, but it's nothing a little glue can't fix.)

Lyrics. :D

Side 2
 So that's the album and I'm really happy that I got it.  :D  I feel like I should've looked for more ABBA records while I was there, but I have a feeling that if I found more I would've gotten them all (which isn't entirely a bad thing xD)!
