Preview: Voulez-Vous: Deluxe Edition - ABBA

Voulez-VousArtist: Abba
Title: Voulez-Vous: Deluxe Edition
Release Date: May 31, 2010
Label: N/A
Format(s): CD/DVD

31 years ago next month, ABBA released their sixth album, Voulez-Vous.  The album, as usual, was a major hit in Europe, spawning four top four singles in England (Chiquitita, Does Your Mother Know, the double sided Angel Eyes/Voulez-Vous and I Have a Dream) but only Chiquitita was able to crack the top 40 in the U.S. 

The album was made during the time that Agnetha Faltskog and Bjorn Ulvaeus were splitting up, with the associated tension at the recording sessions.  It was also recorded at the peak of the disco revolution, so a number of tracks show a heavier than usual dance flavor.

The deluxe edition includes the original album plus five bonus tracks on the CD while the DVD has a BBC special, four live performances, and interview with Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, two commercials for their Greatest Hits 2 collection and a gallery of international record sleeves.
