About this deal

I did think that there was too much about the band's business exploits in the book - I just didn't find that aspect very interesting. Since I am from "peripheral country" myself, I understand perfectly what Carl Magnus Palm has to say and how difficult it is to break into "big time" not to mention hostility at home and suspicious attitude self-important music establishment has towards "provincial newcomers". In addition, the book is packed with quotes from the four members of the group about what life was with ABBA, and from their collaborators or famous ABBA admirers. Each one had approximately a 10-year exposure of varied success as musical artists in Sweden before ABBA formed.

While fans and pop-music lovers alike are still taking in the news of ABBA’s inconceivable comeback with the album Voyage and their Avatar concerts scheduled in London next year, a brand-new, up-to-date two-volume book set sees the light of day on 7th October 2021. We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there is something for every literary palate. For students of literary translation, however, the most fascinating part of the editorial apparatus will be the detailed notes on the poems themselves. I wish that the book had gone into more detail about how they were able to achieve their signature sound - at points the story gets bogged down in explaining how certain singles sell a ton of copies in Belgium, but fewer than the last single in Austria, but a bit more than usual in West Germany, etc.The section before the formation of ABBA is way more interesting than the rest of the book but it is still incredibly readable and insightful. By Palm's account he was at times a devious and cantankerous individual, but there is no doubt that Abba would not be where they are today without his drive and acumen. Bright Lights Dark Shadows is an exhaustive investigation into the story of Abba, from their humble Swedish beginnings into world famous superstars. In pakkende interviews met mensen uit ABBA’s inner circle ontrafelt Van Wymeersch het geheim achter de grootste popgroep aller tijden.

I have loved Abba since discovering them as a shy, withdrawn teenager but never really knew much about their rise to fame or their personal lives until reading this book. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. I am not sure how I feel now about the re-union this year, formerly a joyous occasion for me that prompted my renewed interest in the band. Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive.Pitting Anglo-Italian cultures and sensibilities against each other, Burgess creates a context for his highly original versions of 71 sonnets by Belli, which feature in Part Two.
