BJÖRN ULVAEUS was a member of the folk music group the Hootenanny Singers, who scored many hits between 1963 and 1974,. One of their biggest was "Omkring tiggarn fån Louisa", which spent 52 weeks on the Svenstoppenradio chart. BENNY ANDERSSON played the organ in the Hep Stars, Sweden's biggest pop band., 1964-1969. He also wrote his first hits for the band: "No Response" and "Sunny Girl". ANNI-FRID LYNGSTAD made a large number of solo recordings between 1967 and 1975. He breakthrough was "En ledig dag", which she sang on television after winnning a talent contest. AGNETHA FÄLTSKOG hit the big time in 1968 wiht "Jag var så kär", a song she had written herself. Agnetha's solo career continued until 1975. BJÖRN ULVAEUS & BENNY ANDERSSON wrote their first song together, "Isn't It Easy To Say", in 1966; it was recorded by the Hep Stars. Between 1969 and 1972 they recorded as a duo. "Hej gamle man!" was a hit and is the first recording to feature all four ABBA members.

EVEN THOUGH THE ABBA story ended in 1982, the four members didn't take a break from music making. This is proved by the tracks on this unique double-CD, which collects, for the first time, the highlights from the perio After ABBA. Even before ABAB went their separate ways, Frida recorded her first international solo album - we all remember the PHil Collins-produced hit single "I Know There's Something Going On" - and in 1983 Agnetha had a major succes with "The Heat Is On" from her first English-language solo album, produced by Mike Chapman. SInce then, Frida and Agnetha have enjoyed several exciting collaborations both in Sweden and abroad. Björn and Benny entered the world of musicals and immediately found success with Chess, followed by the hit shows Kristina frå Duvemåla, Mamma Mia! and Hjälp s¡kes. They also produced albums for the Gemini duo and for Josefin Nilsson, and since 2001 they've collaborated on several tunes for Benny Anderssons Orkester. In addition, Benny has written music for films by directors Roy Andersson and Marie-Louise Ekman and for a documentary about Swedish prime minister Olaf Palme. ABBA may not be around anymore, but the love for music lives on within Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida. Some music never does. It multiplies.
