'THE ESSENTIAL COLLECTION'
Has anyone any idea why Universal have delayed the
Triple ABBA Release of 'The Essential Collection',
until Monday 3rd September? (But only in the UK -
maybe Ireland, too).
(By 'Triple Release', I mean that it is being released
in 3 ways - A 2 CD + DVD version, a 2 CD version, &
a DVD version).
It was supposed to be released on Monday 21st May!
Outside of the UK, they are still getting it in May, but
it is September here. This has never, ever happened
before.....Such a big delay between a UK ABBA release,
& a Global ABBA release.
UK ABBA Fans are just wondering what is significant
about September for ABBA, in the UK, that is not
significant for ABBA outside of the UK. It is the 20th
Anniversary of 'Gold' being released - but, it was
released in September 1992, in the rest of Europe, too.

'GOLD' - 5 MILLION UK SALES
In the meantime, The OCC tell me that 'Gold' has
just about reached 5 Million UK Sales, now. They
say they may announce this next Week. It is only
the 3rd Album to sell 5 Million, (or more), in the
UK. It is also the first by a non-UK Act.
