Literally just any morsels they’ll throw at us at this point. 🥰

£6.99 in the HMV sale, £9.99 for the eco box thingy.

I think the only thing I haven't got him is the standard album, so I may bite. For the jewel case and the digipak...

Now that Voyage is a certified success Frida is putting in the work! :D:disco:

From Wikipedia:
In October 2021, the third single "Just a Notion" was released, and it was announced that ABBA would split for good after the release of Voyage. However, in an interview with BBC Radio 2 on 11 November, Lyngstad stated "don't be too sure" that Voyage is the final ABBA album. Also, in an interview with BBC News on 5 November, Andersson stated "if they (the ladies) twist my arm I might change my mind."

Frida on No Doubt About It:

”No doubt about it” could be about me and my beloved one, but if you look upon any relationship with some sense of humour, you will certainly come out of it with a smile - until next time!! 🥴😃❤️

Love getting this insight into her relationship with her Bloody Englishman, I’m entirely unsurprised that she’s so liberal with her use of emojis.

Also the ABBA Voyage mailer that included that nugget described it as their “latest song” so I wonder if that’s the single! :o

Well, the day has come. 'Voyage' is on its way to Oxfam. Have I listened to it since the first week of release? NO. Is it taking up far too much space? YES.

If only I had ONE CD to resent
:D How many copies DO you have?

I mean I suppose it's sort of slightly nice that it exists - although a double A-side would have sufficed - but I just don't want it in the house :)

I belatedly see that Björn is getting divorced from Lena. I expect he's been too busy buying wigs with the Voyage bunce to pay her much mind :disco:

I think it's probably up near 30?

Apparently there are a couple of South American editions he doesn't have as well, which no doubt I'll end up getting at some point.

The Bjorn and Lena divorce is interesting isn't it? Not so much in the story (who knows?), but I can't think of another couple who got divorced well into their 70s, after over 40 years of marriage.

Oh my word :D:D:D

Does he have the Yugoslavian edition?
There are relatively few international editions. It's nearly all just different UK/EU editions, with a handful of Japanese different editions and one US boxset.

ALL UNOPENED AND UNPLAYED

It's probably all those pretty young fillies throwing themselves at him in the hope of a free Little Things fleece :disco:

I think he's not the warmest on an emotional level to say the VERY least. He probably faxed her to tell her to move out :disco:

Shameless profiteering really. It isn't like they don't know what their fans are like. I have of course encountered some at the exciting ABBA Talk events and I certainly know what they're like :eyes:

I lucked out with the jigsaw (well, YOU KNOW) as it was very limited and I just happened to be online when it was made available.

Sometimes I wonder about him dying first (he's 7 years older so probably not unlikely, although i think his lot tend to last longer than mine) and what I'll have to do with it all.

I've never been to an Abba Talk event, but back in the late 90s/early 00s when the old fan club was based in Bristol and Abba Day was held here (and before fandom largely moved online I guess - particularly for groups with an older fanbase), we went to two or three. Quite the spectacle.

Are the Abba Talk ones still held above some pub in Hammersmith?
