Greatest Hits is a compilation album by the Swedish pop group ABBA. It was originally released in Scandinavia on 17 November 1975 and in other parts of the world in 1976, notably the UK on 10 April, and on 18 September in the US and Canada. The 1976 version of the album contained the brand new single "Fernando", which was originally not released as an ABBA song but as a solo version in Swedish by band member Anni-Frid Lyngstad on her album Frida ensam in 1975.

Image caption Abba had a resurgence in popularity with the hit Mamma Mia! musical. Abba's greatest hits album, Gold, is the UK's biggest selling CD, according to the Official Charts Company. It has sold four million copies since 1992, while Adele's 21 is at number two with . m. Oasis album (What's the Story) Morning Glory? has sold . Gold's sales have been boosted by the musical Mamma Mia!, based on Abba's hits, which was also made into a hit film starring Meryl Streep. It is 30 years since the CD format was launched

ABBA Gold: Greatest Hits. Released September 21, 1992. ABBA Gold: Greatest Hits Tracklist. 1. Dancing Queen Lyrics.

ABBA's 19-song Gold collection was the first hits compilation prepared specifically for the CD format by the 1970s supergroup, and, appearing after a period of several years in which their music had been off the market, was a welcome addition to the catalog.

I’ve been a fan of ABBA since the mid-1970s and have long owned their albums ABBA: The Album, Arrival, and The Visitors, each of which has been in heavy rotation in my collection for years and years.
