I'm putting together information of sales of each of their albums released 1973-1982.
I haven't found much info for these countries, even though I remember reading sales figures back in the day.
Any help will be appreciated
Any other sovietic country
This is the information I have from Billboard Magazine
Stig Anderson – album sales in Eastern Europe: Poland 1.5 mio, 400k in Czechoslovakia, 400k in East Germany, 200k in Bulgaria, 200k in Hungary; in the Soviet Union an initial 200k albums were manufactured on license21.10.1978:
ABBA among the artists regularly hitting the 100k sales mark in Yugoslavia8.9.1979:
Czechoslovakia: "The Album" 100k
East Germany: sales 50k for each single, 40k for each album
Ireland: "Greatest Hits" 200k, "Arrival" 150k,"Voulez Vous" album 30k in less than six weeks
Malaysia: "Voulez Vous" 10k + 5k in the pipeline
New Zealand: "Best Of Abba" 250k,"The Album" 60k
Poland: 543,499 copies of the two albums "Waterloo" and "I Do I Do I Do" released and sold out in 1976
Soviet Union: "Arrival" and "The Album" 10k each
Yugoslavia: one of few acts to achieve sales of 100k in a year; 1977 111,600 albums and cassettes, 300k singles6.10.1979:
sales in Russia average 200k to 500k according to Stig Anderson24.5.1980:
Australia "Greatest Hits 2" 100k in 5 weeks, "Voulez-Vous" album 200k17.10.1981:
Australia more than 3 million albums sold
Information from "ABBA The Book"
250k pressed for the “ABBA” album in Poland, demand was 4 times higher1978:
numbers of records pressed in Eastern Europe: Poland (500,000 copies), Czechoslovakia (300,000 copies), East Germany (200,000 copies), Bulgaria (100,000 copies) and Hungary (50,000 copies)
The figures about sales in Eastern Europe are contradictory, the numbers from the Stig Anderson interview in Billboard Magazine from October 1978 seem to be too high, though the figures from "ABBA The Book" also have to be used with caution because some of them are false (for example "SOS" selling 1 mio copies in the US, sales of 1.7 mio copies of the "Super Trouper" album in the UK).
