New Cover For My ABBA Book

I have changed the cover for my 1977 Tour Book now to take into account that this year it is 35 years since ABBA toured here:



My ABBA 1977 Australian Tour Book

I have finally put together a little book about ABBA's Tour of Australia in 1977.
It's full of great photos and tour details.
It is A4 size in landscape with a hard cover and is 116 pages.
I may still do some alterations to it but am pretty happy with it so far.
A nice keepsake of their tour here :)
Shown here are a few of the pages.

New ABBA Collection Item - Picture Disc

Absolutely beautiful picture disc !
This is a Limited Edition release made for the Japanese fan club - this one is number 249 of 250.
It is unusual as it is larger than a single but smaller then an LP.
The album is called 'Super Trouper' and plays on both sides. It has 3 songs on side A and 4 songs on side B.
A really lovely rarity !

ABBA Competition Winner

'Happy New Year' Limited Edition Vinyl Single - Competition

And the winner is ....

Karine Azeredo Paixao from Brazil

Congratulations Karine !

Karines' entry was chosen from close to 300 entries.

Karines' Entry:

"The brightness of this LP represents how brilliant my heart has become since ABBA came into my life and gave me amazing friends and love."

Thank you to everyone who entered my competition and for all the wonderful entries - it truly was a joy reading them all. I honestly wish I could give everyone a prize.

The person I chose to decide the winner had a very difficult time selecting just one entry to win this single. There were many clever entries as well as heartfelt ones but after much consideration the judge chose Karines' entry because:
 "It represented what ABBA means to people - and the affect ABBA has had on peoples' lives".

Wonderful !

Thanks again for the effort put into the entries - and be sure to check this space again for the next fabulous competition !
Happy New Year to everyone !
