Product Description


Abba's first album, Ring Ring, points toward the world-dominating pop of their later years. While the title cut has some vroom, others call for fine-tuning. The New Seekers-style anthem "People Need Love" offers the bizarre insistence that "People need love to make a good living"--at what?--and "Nina Pretty Ballerina" could be a pop song for toddlers. Not a bad thing, but not quite "Dancing Queen". And no, "Me and Bobby and Bobby's Brother" isn't a Springsteen-ian saga of felonious misadventure, but a jingling remembrance of playground days. The 24-bit remastered sound of this edition (which includes a Swedish version of "Ring Ring" among its three bonus tracks) does suggest the care Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus were already taking with production. --Rickey Wright

~ Abba is their first album and it defenitely shows. It is cheesy, stupid and irreverant. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for hardcore Abba fans
There is a lot of bubblegum on this album, but even the Beatles started with bubblegum. If you're really into Abba, get this one! If you're not, get something else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Debut album has some great songs
Nobody could claim that this is the best Abba album, but it is much better than some would have you believe. Indeed I prefer it to a couple of their later albums. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Abba, Before the Rise
"Ring Ring" is the first album that Abba ever recorded, and it shows an band that was just beginning to figure out how to write great pop songs. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars the first...not necessarily their best...
at the time of its (original) release, this album provided no clues to the 300 million records they would eventually tuck under their belts (and bank accounts) 29 years after. Read more
