Notes & Reviews:

Following their 1974 Eurovision Song Contest win, Abba went on to become one of the most popular groups of all time. Carl Davis saw the performance that night and admired their cleverness and sheer cheekiness. Forty years later, he decided to make an Abba for Orchestra CD having already successfully made and marketed a Beatles for Orchestra CD and a Bond for Orchestra CD. "...I thought it valid to create purely instrumental versions and reveal the great qualities of the songs..." - Carl Davis
