ABBA-Our Last Video- July 2004 International DVD/video release
ABBA thought to have some minor reunion to mark the 30th anniversary of their Eurovision breakthough A near reunion nearly occured at the fifth anniversary performance of Mammia Mia in London's West End. It was hoped that Agnetha might induced to come out of hiding due to the need to promote her album. Instead only Bjorn , Benny and Frida showed up, on stage in a semi-reunion. Frida had attended performances before but had never gotten up on stage with B&B before....
All four members of ABBA finally agreed to appear briefly and separately in a short but clever and entertaining video clip broadcast during the 2004 Eurovision song contest...It originally been hoped that the four members might agree to make a non-singing appearence together, but instead this near reunion was agreed to....The video features ABBA puppets and ABBA song references, The Dvd features the video , a making of the video segment, and some of the full original ABBA videos that were mentioned in the "Our FINAL VIDEO."

ABBA In Concert DVD edition International release. March 2004
If you want hear ABBA live you skip the ABBA live CD and should this DVD or wait for the ABBA -THE MOViE DVD...
This is a documentary of the 1979 ABBA tour of North America& Europe directed by Swedish Tv pro -Urban Lasson. It mostly features musical segments from the concerts, but also documents life on the road for ABBA as well as a seemingly endless series of segments with roller skaters.....It has been shown before on TV (back in 1980) and been out on video, but had not available recently... The main body of the original TV special included twelve songs- all but one of which could found in original studio versions on either the Greatest Hits Volume 2 or Voulez-Vous. Some Fans have objected that the performances of the songs are edited-but while not complete most the song segments are relativley long. Apparently, the camera did not actually film complete shows-so in many cases the songs were not filmed in their entirety. A few of the songs benefit from live presentation notably -"Summer Night City" and "I Have A dream" wheras some of ABBA's best songs -"Waterloo", "Dancing Queen" , and "Knowing Me, Knowing You" do not come off as well in live performances. ..
This DVD new version features two songs not included on the original home video-The Way Old Friends Do and Thank You For The Music, as well as the full version of "I have A Dream" which was widely used previously as the official promo clip for that song.../.
"The Way Old Friends DO" is easily the best moment of the film and seems strange that if was left out of some of the 1979-1980 versions of the TV special as,well on off the original home video released in 1980. This performance orginates from 1979 ABBA's concerts' at London's Wembley Stadium in one of the last important concert of their careers..(though they did not know it at time.) The song features Benny on accordion and the all the group singing. It almost borders on spontaniety, almost seems genuinely emotional , both of which were qualities in short supply for ABBA when performing live...At one point Lasson chooses a great back shot of the group which really gives one a sense that yes, we are looking at music legends.... I think that in general that Lasson did a good job on this special.. Some listeners have complained about the sound quality, which I cant comment on because i have not heard the DVD in 5.1 sound but I didnt really notice bad sound quality...
The DVD features informative Interviews
with ABBA's tour promoter, Thomas Johannson, and the film's director
and a Fully illustrated booklet with an essay by Carl Magnum Palm..
. This is the first time this title has been released on DVD. This is the fourth official ABBA product to be released on DVD...

Benny Andersson's Orkester-BAO! June 2004 Available on Swedish CD
Similiar formula to Benny's three previous Benny albums , nine instrumentals ,as well as five songs with Helen Sjoholm vocals.... Bjorn wrote two lyrics for this album- "Du Ar Min Man", and " Midnattsdans". Midnattsdans" is a duet featuring Helen Sjoholm and Kalle Moreaus.. Lyrics to two other songs s "Saknadens rum" and "Kärlekens tid are written by Ylva Eggehorn, (who cowrote Benny's Millennium song,) .The two Ylva songs were originally used in the movie -Sanger Fran Andra Vanigen. Finally, the lyric to one song -Skenbart' is by Peter Dalle. "Du är min man" has been released as a single. This is the 20 studio album in row that Benny has worked with Bjorn on at least one song .
As usual this album was only released in Scandinavia, though it is available as an import on the net. Once again Benny and his orchestra will be playing a short tour in Sweden in August 2004 to support the album and to have fun! If only one could simply walk to Sweden for those weekends...

Nils Landgren & Funk Unit -Funky ABBA Swedish CD
ABBA and the word funky- I just dont know....but it works. This album by Swedish trombonist Nils Landgren, and his Funk Unit was coproduced /and coproformed by John Coltranes' son Magnum Coltrane Price. Nils Landgren is known to ABBA fans for his work playing on the "Voulez-Vous' album..Some of the singing on the album is done by female guest vocalists..
The Funk unit includes Henrik Janson who played with Gemini and ABBA drummer Per Lindvall plays on one track.
The album is sort of jazz/funk fusion-and it works surprisingly well-it's rare to hear covers that bring out the high quality of ABBA songs. This works because it doesnt' sound at all like ABBA. But still I'm not sure I'd recommend unless jazz or are open rap/funk...
This album features Benny Andersson playing on one track-the version of "When All is Said and Done...and that not surpringsly it is a great track-put that on a Benny compilation album, please! The track is similiar to the Annie Sofie Otter version of "Like an Angel Passing Through My Room"...
A British reader ,Mike Auber,
gives this quick review-"The funky
together quite well with tracks like "Name Of The Game", "Gimme Gimme
Gimme" and "Voulez-Vous". But even if you don't like jazz trombone or
rapping, Benny's unaccompanied piano/vocal version of "When All Is Said
And Done" melts the heart".

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...
The title track of the album is
song by John Kander and Fred Ebb. Like Agnetha's last couple of
studio's album, this album will be released on the Warner Music
label. Although there will be more than just a Scandinavian release
