Abba's total published sales: by the end of the 70s =150m, 1983=180m, 1986=215m, 1994=over 250m. This would seem plausible enough. But in 1999, suddenly 350m. In keeping with what universal say, I.e. they still sell several million a year, a more reasonable number at that point would maybe tally 270m? I know some still have problems even with this total, but if all double albums are counted twice, the albums box set has 9 discs, so multiply each box sold by 9, etc...could this be a viable number?

All 4 members of ABBA reunited for to-nights opening of the Mamma Mia! Themed Taverna in Stockholm:,

ABBA have never been 'too old' to work together again. It never mattered what they
look like 'these days', as they could have just done a Studio Album, (or Single), &
they would not even have had to be in the Video(s) to promote it. Modern technology
means that an Act can be recreated in a Video, without the 'real' Act being in it. It
has been that way since the 1990's.....

The Myth was that ABBA 'looked too old' to record again. It never mattered. Only the creativity,
& voices mattered.

So "Greatest Hits" went from Gold to 8xPlatinum... :o

Was it really that undercertified or it's because of streaming being included?

"Gold - Greatest Hits" was certified 14xPlatimum in July 2013. Has it really sold another million in two and a half years?

Impressive!

Wait, will they now finally update all their pre multi platonum status certifications?

This brings Greatest Hits to 2,400,000 right?

I wanted to know the exact sales for Arrival, The Album, Voulez Vous, greatest Hits vol.2, super Trouper, The Visitors and The Singles.

Nope:

zeus555 wrote:ABBA Gold has sold around 5,300,000 to 5,420,000 UK copies since September 1992.

ABBA Gold was the UK's 103rd Best Selling Album of 2014 - with 70,300 Sales.

It was the 79th UK Best Selling Album for 2015 - with 84,000 Sales.
"Gold" was actually eligible for 17x platinum in July 2013, its total sales were around 5.1 - 5.2 mio copies at that time.

NOVEMBER 2006 -- In November 2006 The OCC published a Top 100 List of the UK's All Time Best Selling Albums.
At that time ABBA Gold was in 5th place, and Greatest Hits, (1976), was in 27th place. Later Albums No.101 to No.110
were revealed & ABBA had another Album in those 10 - Arrival at No.104.

Here they are - with their UK Sales to November 2006:,

05.. GOLD - GREATEST HITS -- ABBA -- 3,943,950
27.. GREATEST HITS -- ABBA -- 2,598,576
104.. ARRIVAL -- ABBA -- 1,653,225


So Greatest Hits has got 8 Awards for 2,400,000 UK Sales & it has actually sold 200,000 towards a 9th Award.

Here is the full List of long over-due up-dated Platinum Album Awards, that The B.P.I. gave out today.
(The B.P.I. is the British Phonographic Industry).

Until today ABBA's 8 UK No.1 Albums, (from their Year's together), only had 8 Platinum Awards between them.
When ABBA were together, an Album could only earn 1 Platinum Award - no matter how many times it sold
300,000 in the UK. Now Greatest Hits, (1976), alone has 8 Platinum Awards.....


Today - Friday 5th February 2016 - The B.P.I. gave out long due Sales Awards to several UK Albums.
Greatest Hits (One) by Queen rose from 11 UK Platinum Awards to 20. Their Greatest Hits II Album
went up from 8 to 13 Platinum Awards. (Although both of those Albums have at least 566,000 Sales,
(each), added in from a 1994 Double Album & a 2000 Triple Album). ABBA Gold has risen from 14 Platinum
Awards to 17. Sgt. Pepper by The Beatles is up from 3 Platinum Awards to 17. This means that the 1st
Greatest Hits Album by Queen, has the most Platinum Awards, with The Beatles & ABBA Albums joint 2nd.
21 by Adele moves from 1st place to 4th, with its 16 Platinum Awards. The 1976 Greatest Hits Album by
ABBA now has 8 Platinum Awards - up from 1. (A lot of other 1970's & 1980's Albums by ABBA need their
1 Platinum Awards increased too. As do further Beatles Albums from the 1960's etc).

This Week 18 Hits has jumped from No.40 to No.11, in Ireland. This is due to at least
one Chain Store there having a Sale, by reducing the price of numerous Albums.

Hence why Hits Albums by UB40, (No.14), Chris Rea, (No.16), Diana Ross, (No.21), and
Barry White, (No.29), have all re-entered the Irish Top 100 this Week. As have several
other Hits Albums.

No.11 is actually the highest Irish Top 100 Position that 18 Hits has ever reached. It
got as high as No.12 last Year, but No.11 is its Peak - so far. It has taken it 115 Weeks,
in the Top 100, to reach No.11. It has to be the longest time that an Irish Album has
taken to get to its highest Position.

If 18 Hits reaches the Irish Top 10, it will be the longest time that any Album has
been in the Top 100 there, before it - finally - made the Top 10.

The Best Selling ABBA 'Deluxe' Album in the UK is 'The Visitors'.

Although it only spent 1 Week in the Top 75 it had sold 73,200 UK
copies by the end of September 2015.

It was a No.62 UK Album on W/E 5th May 2012.

Actually - I think that 73,200 are 'The Visitor's UK Sales since
the 1990's. With the 2012 'Deluxe' version's Sales added in
to its 1997 Sales etc.

Elsewhere - an ABBA Fan has given out UK ABBA Sales from Polydor,
that cover the 1994 to 2002 period.

Ring Ring -- 30,000

The Album -- 44,000,

Super Trouper -- 96,000

75 (RE) ABBA Gold

The reason for this re-entry is probably an ABBA documentary which aired on WDR last Saturday.

New Zealand
Australia
Singapore
Malaysia
Poland
Russia
Ireland

This is the information I have from Billboard Magazine:

7.10.1978: 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 license
21.10.1978: ABBA among the artists regularly hitting the 100k sales mark in Yugoslavia
8.9.1979:
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 singles
6.10.1979: sales in Russia average 200k to 500k according to Stig Anderson
24.5.1980: Australia "Greatest Hits 2" 100k in 5 weeks, "Voulez-Vous" album 200k
17.10.1981: Australia more than 3 million albums sold

Information from "ABBA The Book":
1975: 250k pressed for the “ABBA” album in Poland, demand was 4 times higher
1978: 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).

Regarding New Zealand, I also have this information:

Albums
1975 ABBA No.3, 59 weeks, Platinum (I think this should have a much higher certification, MJDangerous once estimated sales of 100k)
1976 Best Of ABBA No.1 (18x), 77 weeks, Platinum x24 (= 360.000)
1976 Ring, Ring No.32, 6 weeks
1976 Waterloo No.38, 2 weeks, Gold
1976 Arrival No.1 (5x), 42 weeks, Platinum x10 (=150.000)
1978 The Album No.1 (5x), 17 weeks, Platinum x4 (=60.000)
1979 Voulez-Vous No.2, 20 weeks, Platinum
1979 Greatest Hits, Volume 2 No.3, 14 weeks
1980 Super Trouper No.5, 14 weeks (2x Platinum ???)
1982 Visitors No.19, 5 weeks

Platinum was 15k at the time. Don't know if "Best Of ABBA" sold 250k or 360k.
The January 22nd, 1977 issue of Billboard Magazine which features the Australian sales figures posted by innocenteyes says that "Best Of ABBA" sold 200k in New Zealand, and that "Arrival" shipped 150k.
It's interesting to see that ABBA's decline in popularity after 1977 was less strong in New Zealand than in Australia.

Former UK Mix member MJ Dangerous has estimated sales of "ABBA Gold" in France to be 1 625 000.

While compilation charts in the first half of the 90s are hardly available, we still have certifications available. What’s interesting to notice is that the album went 2xPlatinum (600,000) in April 25 1994, along with a huge amount of similar packages released by Polygram. Below is the list of artist compilation albums of that label certified on that date, along with their release date:

05/1992 Lionel Richie – Back To Front – 3xPlatinum: 900,000
09/1992 ABBA – Gold – 2xPlatinum: 600,000
09/1992 Police – Greatest Hits – Platinum: 300,000
10/1992 Jimi Hendrix – Ultimate Experience – 2xGold: 200,000
10/1992 Bee Gees – Success Story – 2xGold: 200,000
11/1992 Supertramp – The Very Best Of – Gold: 100,000
11/1992 Serge Reggiani – Compilation – Gold: 100,000

In 12/1995, Polygram did another audit, this time certifying about two dozens of compilations all released from 1985 to 1990 by French acts, but none of those 1992 best of albums. Both audits interpreted together means Gold was anywhere from 600,000 to 900,000 in April 1994 and could have been over 1 million soon after. It just happened that way as it was certified Diamond in mid-1996, although this is one more certification absent from SNEP database. The album had an incredible showing that year topping the compilation chart for six weeks, ending the year at an estimated 1,1 million.

From 1997 to 2002, the album sold approximatively 200,000 units. The strong catalog sales never went down despite the competition from other ABBA best of albums. The Definitive Collection, 18 Hits, the Name Of the Game among others challenged Gold but this latter always continued selling, just like Legend did for Bob Marley. From 2003 to 2008, it added 194,000 more units (as per GFK), including 64,000 in 2008 thanks to Mamma Mia! revival. This one was still going in 2009 with almost 30,000 sales. It added 100,000 more units since.

Net shipment as of the end of 2015 is estimated at 1,625,000 copies.
