ABBA : Thank You for the Music
Everybody loves ABBA--as proven by the blockbuster success of "Mamma Mia!" the movie. "Thank You for the Music" traces the story of the Swedish supergroup--which has sold an estimated 350,000,000 records, tapes, and CDs--through their songs. Starting with their world-conquering 1970s disco hits, it travels through to the more reflective 1980s, with "The Winner Takes It All" marking a watershed in their output. Every tune from the musical and movie is covered, and glorious photographs form a sublime gallery of Abba's most dazzling costumes. This is a unique in-depth study of the places, events, and characters that inspired an enduring catalog of classic songs.
