ABBA "The Vinyl Collection" Polar Box Set 9 180g LP's. Box and Records are NM. There is clear plastic slip case that goes over the box to protect it.
It's got scuff marks on it from being in a record store and and some sticker residue, but the box itself is as described. The box set also contains a bonus album, entitled ABBA TRACKS, the A-side of which contains the five single A-sides not included on the original studio albums.The B-side of ABBA TRACKS features a further five non-album songs, personally selected by ABBA's Benny Andersson. Going back to the analogue master tapes for each individual album, as originally prepared by ABBA and their associates, the albums in the ABBA - THE VINYL COLLECTION box set have been remastered for vinyl especially for this release. The track listings of the albums mirror the original Swedish releases, as originally planned and conceived by ABBA and their record company Polar Music. Similarly, the eight studio albums are presented in replica covers featuring Polar Music's original art work and inner sleeves - exactly as they looked when they first hit record shops back in the Seventies and early Eighties. ABBA - The Vinyl Collection also contains a 52-page full-colour timeline booklet featuring album content details, rare memorabilia, recording paraphernalia and photographs.
FURTHER DETAILS The LPs in ABBA - The Vinyl Collection have been remastered from the original Polar Music album master tapes by Janne Hansson, a long-time engineer at the Metronome Studio, where ABBA recorded many of their most well-known tracks. Working at Metronome since the Seventies, Janne is now the owner of the studio, which today operates under the name Atlantis look it up in Sara Russell's book The ABBA Guide To Stockholm. The LP sleeves replicate the original Swedish album designs, even down to the inner sleeves.
The same goes for the labels on the actual records. To be able to get each and every one of these details right, we enlisted the help of collector and Polar Music label expert Frank Axelsson. The booklet duplicates the introduction and timeline previously seen in the box sets ABBA - The Complete Studio Recordings and ABBA - The Albums. However, much of the booklet has been redesigned with new illustrations: fun stuff if you're into recording documentation like tape boxes, label copy sheets, etc. There are also a number of photographs which, if not previously unpublished (I wouldn't dare make such a claim), are certainly not among the most commonly used.The ninth LP, entitled ABBA Tracks, features ABBA's five non-album single A-sides on the A-side, while the B-side features a further selection of non-album tracks, selected by Benny Andersson - not exclusively single B-sides in fact.
