Yay for me. My folks had a Greatest Hits record of theirs, which would be on regularly. As such, most of their songs stuck with me.
In the early 90s, it was announced there would be a newer Greatest Hits compilation, titled "Gold". It would be the first compilation available on CD. So, naturally, I was like...I'M THERE!
Later on, it was announced there would be another compilation released, titled "More ABBA Gold". I never did pick it up as there weren't many songs that I recognized.
However, a few weeks ago, iTunes had a sale on Greatest Hits albums - "More ABBA Gold" being one of them. It was $4.99. SOLD!
Funny story (actually TWO funny stories) about ABBA:
Back when I worked music retail, I had picked up "Gold". My parents were there at the time, and a couple of my mother's friends came into the store. They start looking thru the CDs. One of her friends picks up "Gold". She asks me, "I suppose YOU wouldn't know anything about this?"
My mother interjects, and says, "He's got it!" I think the friend didn't know of my eclectic music tastes. My mother also proceeded to point out that I have both the "Red" and the "Blue" compilations of The Beatles.
How I mentioned I didn't get "More ABBA Gold". A buddy of mine was looking for the CD. He enjoyed the cassette so much - he had worn it out!
