Premium Publishing is presenting a new revised version of their book "From ABBA to Mamma Mia!" in January 2010.Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid were the biggest global pop phenomenon of the 1970s. Their 1974 Eurovision win led to an unbroken string of hits around the world, and in recent years their music has enjoyed an unparalleled revival with the bestselling compilation ABBA Gold and the phenomenal success of the musical Mamma Mia! – based on ABBA's songs.
Despite their global fame and the continuing fascination with all things ABBA, since their split the group have never given their blessing to an official book – until now.
From ABBA to Mamma Mia! features more than 500 photographs taken by Anders Hanser, a close friend of the band who has had unprecedented access over more than twenty years. Where other books have only been able to portray the public face of ABBA, this book is a snapshot of life with ABBA behind closed doors: relaxing in a private jet between US shows, departing from Wembley Arena by limo surrounded by fans, and backstage at the video shoot for ’Super Trouper’.
The authoritative text is by Carl Magnus Palm, recognized as one of the world's fore-most ABBA historians, who has worked closely with the group and interviewed many of their entourage, including costume designers, sound engineers and video directors. He paints a complete and vivid portrait of the world within ABBA's inner circle of friends and colleagues.
Official, definitive and essential, and with a foreword by the four band members themselves, From ABBA to Mamma Mia! is every fan's dream book.
