Another Live Album?

No I haven't just announced or created a rumor that there will be another live album coming out.  I'm just theorizing.  :P

Not that I'm disappointed with the recent ABBA Live at Wembley Arena album at all, I'm just wondering if ABBA will be releasing yet another live album, only this time containing audio from their 1977 tour.  They just seemed happier then (not saying that they weren't happy at all during the world tour) and I kinda prefer the song selection from the 1977 tour.   I understand if Bjorn and Benny are a bit embarrassed over the Girl with the Golden Hair and all that stuff, but maybe it'd be nice to officially release "Get On the Carousel" for the first time?  Come on, you did it with "I'm Still Alive".  :P

I'm a bit scared that there won't be many new releases coming 2015 because they have just completed the entirety of the Deluxe Edition CDs and some people might be getting annoyed with the re-releases of ABBA Gold  (I don't think that's true, though, I'm just making that up.  :P  Let's hope no one gets tired of ABBA Gold.) 

Or maybe they'd do something even cooler: Release the entire concert footage from either one of the 1977 concerts or the 1979 concerts!  Hopefully they still have those somewhere.  :P 

Even better: Maybe they can release "Just Like That" officially for the first time!  It is such a beautiful song, and in my opinion, the Gemini version is stupid.  Same for the demo that Elaine Paige sang.  Agnetha's voice suits the song better and the original lyrics are a lot better.

Or maybe (this will probably never, ever, ever happen unfortunately) ABBA will decide that since they don't have any new material, they should get together and make more material!  :D  Too bad that'll never happen.  :(

Let's just hope that 2015 will come and go with tons of new and awesome releases from our four wonderful Swedes.  :P

Happy new year, viewers!

  1. I really want them to release the LIVE album of the '77 tour. I think it would be just phenomenal! In fact, I like ABBA The Movie more than ABBA in concert, haha.

  2. Same here- all the footage from ABBA the Movie seemed more alive then ABBA in concert (and personally I like the 1977 costumes better :P ). :) The only thing I didn't care too much about the 1977 tour was all the talk about Agnetha's... you know. :P
