|ABBA in their own words|

Success has not come easy for Abba. When they won the Eurovision Song Contest they appeared as two innocent couples singing a catchy song. The accessibility of their tunes soon made them the favourites of the deejays and the public. The string of hits grew longer and the melodies more sophisticated. Their management compagny became one of the Sweden's biggest exporters next to Volvo but behind the scenes the strain of touring and the pressures of fame eventually caused both their mariages to fail. Here, in quotes taken from contemporary interviews, is Abba story, told by the group themselves.
A lot of pictures, only in black and white, and some rares. It's interesting but it's only compilations from interviews: it gives you the impression of truth, but is it?
