Description

In the five-month period between the releases of the Scandinavian and UK versions of Greatest Hits, ABBA had achieved their second consecutive (and third overall) UK number-one single with "Fernando", and this song was added to the UK version of the album, as well as to a reissued version in Norway and Denmark. Other than this, this album's music evokes a sense of nostalgia for many people as a lot of people's parent's listened to it or you may remember it from your childhood.

Other hits in multiple territories included " I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" (a top 10 hit in several countries, a number one in Australia, and a top 20 hit in the US, though barely cracking the top 40 in the UK), " Honey, Honey" (a top 20 hit in several countries and a top 30 hit in the US), " Hasta Mañana" (a top 10 hit in South Africa and New Zealand and a top 20 hit in Australia), and " So Long" (a top 20 hit in Germany and a top 10 hit in Sweden and Denmark). It spent eleven non-consecutive weeks at the top of the UK Albums Chart and went on to become the best-selling album of 1976 [8] and the second best-selling album of the 1970s.You get overcharged 3 times with this one comparing to best true analog vinyl audiophile experience.

The reason I don't give this album a 9 is because of the film Mamma Mia, even though it bought the band more fame than they already had, it also makes it so that when you play a song by ABBA, it is more often than not someone will say "oh, thats the song from Mamma Mia" and won't actually know the band. The album was released in response to similar ABBA compilation albums being issued at the time by record labels in other countries who had licensed ABBA's music for release in their own territories, and the threat of import sales of those compilations impacting upon ABBA's home market. To counteract the possibility of import sales from these records in Scandinavia, ABBA's record label Polar Music rush-released their own version of Greatest Hits.Despite the title of the compilation, only half of the tracks had actually charted as hit singles in major territories.
