Arrival 40th annieversary

again a laughing release !
we could expect 'Monsieur Monsieur' as a bonus on a reproduction of the Deluxe format , maybe out of stock
we could expect a real audiophile format of 5.1 or 7.1 audio DVD
no !

we have 10 songs on 4 sides of vinyl LPs
expensive as hell
half speed ???
we're on numeric age !!!!
Universal and Benny had taken a new advantage  and bleed the porte folio of fans !!
let's see
one is a tax stealer who gives lessons of humanism!
another is a grandma who sings one song every 5 years on entire guest albums (without any single to buy or on a Japanese import CD)
the third is going on the penthouse of sex-jazz or 50s bubble gum and is adament on releasing some Abba's Swedish melancholia
there is only our beloved Agnetha who seems to offer , though scarcely, an entire album of her angel voice
maybe there will be some Abba's materiel to be released when older fans would all have died  and no one cares about it !

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

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 !

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 !
