1. I always liked ABBA, and after they had their hits, I admired them even more,

they were offered billions of dollars to reunite
and Bjorn of ABBA said it was ridiculous.They couldn't recreate the sound, they didn't look like they used to look like, there were personal entanglements over the years and no amount of money in the world could get them to reunite on stage or on record.

A relic of another time and place, another period in time.

I was always partial to Fernando

3. Kewl. I also like the version of the Von Trapps.



... & Pink Martini.

You know the orchestrator & keyboardist sat W/ Ted Nugent during POTUS O! 'S Last inauguration Speech.

Nugent was entirely uncomfortable. There are photos.

2. One of my favorite musicals, "Chess", is by two former ABBA members, Benny Andersson

and Björn Ulvaeus

Here, you can watch the whole thing! It's only 2 1/2 hours long...

4. always thought this should be revived on Broadway.

It's not ABBA, but it is very good music (Tim Rice was the lyricist)

I wish I had seen the full stage UK version. (it has never been done right in the US).

5. I agree completely as regards the US vs. the UK version.

The lyrics in the US version are "dumbed-down" in a number of places.

6. Josh Groban is Gr8t!! Beautiful Voice.

Unfortunately, I can't do 2+hrs streaming on my Android. I live in a Con State & Verizon charges out the wazoo 4 every Gig over Plan.

I will look for it on DVD : )

Seriously, though, thanks !

8. I actually prefer the original concept album overall, but the Albert Hall concert version is quite

good. Doesn't hurt that it has Idena Menzel (I saw her in concert a couple of years ago, good stuff).

I will look for it on DVD : )

Two and a half bucks (plus shipping) at Amazon:
