Portishead release Abba SOS video in tribute to Jo Cox

in this video with a reworked version of Abba standard , Portishead makes a terrific comeback

although about a very sad fact (the slaughter of a young and Anti-Brexit politician )


it's once more a tribute to the greatest band in the world!

The Way Old Friends Do ?

another Abba reunion in Stockholm, this time for the 50 th birthday of B and B first meeting
they sung ????
swedish titles  'Här är hela Abba på scen tillsammans' and video shows no sound and a robotic voice comments !!

no OST here it reminds me of the duet (true love ) between Agnetha and Tommy !
anyway fans are excluded from these event as we seem to be not concerned sqo
happy return and good luck for the future to all the four

Rest In Peace JOSEFIN NILSSON

she died the 29th of february after a hip surgery
we knew that she and her sister were financially bankrupt and that benny helped her ,even writing songs for their next show
what happen is a disaster , may be peace for her and her beloved

we miss you

NB.the singer most famous for "alska mej " and" lassie" with her sisters
an entire album written by Benny 'shapes'
Maybe I will add something
I had  a special feeling of affection towards her because she looked like a relative of mine !

PEACE TRACKS


ABBA, Angélique Kidjo, Anoushka Shankar, A.R. Rahman, Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), Melissa Auf der Maur, Roger Taylor (Duran Duran) and Philip Glass

"Musicians from around the world collaborated and built upon contributions from high-profile recording artists in this innovative global initiative that aims to bridge the divide between different cultures and countries through music."




Abba have contributed with samples of SOS intro and "Soldiers" drums . two masterpieces of work of art , the samples are very different from the mood of the original (SOS being more J .S .Bach atmosphere and the paranoia of soldiers ) but it is fine for it's made for something mostly important , the war around the globe since more than 50 years , where a war is taking place  around the world each time there is peace elsewhere !

Something’s Going On box deluxe limited edition


first
is this news or deluxe really ???
no exclusive release in this !
no demo nor rarety !!
no previously unreleased video !!
is this because the Frida box set 4CD+ DVD has been deleted ?
how this release can be celebration ?
second
are only 2000 frida fans among the Abba fans
what I'm sure is that lot of new fans are not anymore because of Frida and Benny attitude towards fans (not releasing anything new or new bad things and keeping gems in the vaults)

in memory of Rutger Gunnarsson

bass magnificent riffs of
"Nina pretty ballerina"
"shine"
and many others
the most iconic Abba musician
wrote the string arrangement for "my love my life"
and" the album" entirely



all the albums of Abba and you can guess when he's not on the track , because bass line is not as inventive as his .
he's one of the musicians responsible  for the thrill of Abba songs along with Sven olof walldoff and Lasse Wellander
