AGNETHA Faltskog -My Coloring Book International CD release April 2004

Agnetha All the songs are recorded in English.

The album is being produced by Anders Neglin and Dan Strömkvist. "If I Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind" has been released as the leadoff single.. Prior to this album.,Agnetha didnt have much opportunity to do too many covers of classic pop music during her solo career because most of her material was newly written for her solo albums...

Although there will be more than just a Scandinavian release of the album, it's not clear that every nation will see this album. 1. My Colouring Book 2. When You Walk In The Room 3.

ABBA-On and On Early     Spring  2003 American CD

Essentially  the recent complimation "The Name of the Game" released with a differant title for the American makert. On and On indeed!

Ratata-Kollektion October 2002 Swedish CD
This new collection features Frida's duet with them, which i am forgetting the title of ...oh yes - "Sa lange Vi Har Haran" Isn't this a great site!
ABBA- THE NAME OF THE GAME   BRITISH CD
 
Another pointless, if cheap complimation done for the British markert,
which is actually sort of rerelease of a previous complimation.

-Filippa Giordano- -Il Rosso Armore Deluxe October 2002 Deluxe edition.Japanes only release

This new deluxe version of this album features a extra  CD with the song "La Barcarolle" from "Hoffman's Adventure" by Jacques Offenbach.Frida duets on this track, and this track only! This is Japanese only release-so it probably makes sense to wait for a less obscure release of this track..

This album should be available in some form in Europe in November, but no word on the USA. The other songs are all by Filllippa, a wonderful opera singer.  Fans will remember that Frida sang a opera piece during ABBA's appearence on the 1978 Olivia special and showed impressive range at the time.

Svenne & Lotta - Tio Gyllene År 1973-1983 Swedish CD Early 2002  Scandanavian release only

Finally a fairly good complimation of the work of Svenne & Lotta. Svenne & Lotta

were the lead singers in Benny's 1960's band -The Hep Stars. Svenne & lotta continued to work on and off with Benny during the early 1970's and were signed to ABBA'slabel Polar music as a duo. Svenne And Lotta recorded a few songs written for them as wellas many oldies covers and a few B&B songs. They recorded the first Swedish versions of three ABBA songs-Bang -A -Boomerang, "Dance (while the Music Goes On)" and "He Is Your Brother". One of the more interesting recordings here is the B&B disco track "Funky Feet" which was attempted but never recorded by ABBA. Although there a few interesting tracks Svenne& Lotta are a uneven act-and best heard as members of the Hep Stars.

Track listing -Bang A- Boomerang/När dagen försvinner/Dance (While the music still goes on), Chapel of love/, Sandy/ Breakin' up is hard to do/ All I have to do is dream/ It's a real good feeling/Du ger mig liv,/Take good care of my baby/ He is your brother,/Broken hearts/ Om jag fick leva om mitt liv/ Precious to me/ Only you/Where were you/Can't stop myself from loving you/ If it's love/ Makin' love/Funky feet

Track listing: Allt under himmelens fäste/ Horgalåten/, Man borde inte sova/ Vid vassen av den krökta ström/ Här är gudagott att vara,/Koppången/ Lustvin dansar en gavott med de fem sinnena/ Då väntar jag vid vägarna,/Ombytlighet - vår tids gudinna/Vindarna sucka/Tusen tankar/Du som har mitt hela hjärta/Varning/ Som en eld,/Vårvindar friska 

PETER JOBACK - I Feel Good And I'm Worth It
