Abba - The Complete Guide to their Music ABBA - The Complete Guide to their Music by Carl Magnus Palm contains information only about the songs or alternate versions as released by ABBA, Polar Music in Sweden and/or their official licensees around the world.

Due to the scope of the book, it does not feature the many edited or extended versions that have appeared over the past 30 years on promotional singles or albums, compilation albums released on budget labels, songs remixed or edited for television performances, or any other "unofficial" alternate versions. Almost all of these were done outside the group's control.

This list includes all known alternate versions of songs, including those not included in the book. The column on the right indicates where and when it was available. In most cases, they were only available in one country on one record now long out-of-print.

Like the book, this list does not contain information about songs (or versions of songs) that have not been released. See the Songs section of ABBA Omnibus for all known ABBA songs released and unreleased.

See Carl Magnus Palm's Complete Guide page for more information about this new book, including ordering links. Books signed by the author can also be ordered.


LP = long player/album
MC = music cassette
CD = compact disc
