Your work is excellent, MJDangerous. However, I cannot speak French, so which Country is Pays-Bas?
Also, 'Greatest Hits', by ABBA, in (West) Germany, is not the ABBA Album, that many think it is. The Germans had already made 'The Best Of ABBA', a No 1 Album, in 1975 - but that was not 'Greatest Hits', either. (Both Albums had virtually identical Track Lists, but 'Greatest Hits' never actually Charted in (West) Germany). The Album that reached Number 2 in 1976, was not 'Greatest Hits').
In 1976, 'The Very Best Of ABBA - ABBA's Greatest Hits' came out, in (West) Germany, & that was a Number 2 Album. It confuses many people, as 'Hits Bilanz', the German Album Chart Book, shortened its Title to, 'Greatest Hits' - and that has caused many people to think that it is the Single Disk Album that came out in the UK, USA, etc. It is not - it is actually a 24 Track Double Album, & it has nothing to do with the Single Disk 'Greatest Hits' Album.
First of all, thanks for those positive comments ! Yes you are right about Germany, I decided to include "The Very Best Of ABBA" in Germany with the worldwide release of "Greatest Hits" due to their pretty similar track list, and also because the entire name of the first one is "The Very Best Of ABBA, ABBA's Greatest Hits", I had considered that we can count them as the same album.
Ah, and yes, French language can differ a lot from English! Pays-Bas is the Netherland
