Description


ABBA: The Album signed on the front cover in blue ballpoint by Agnetha Fältskog, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Benny Andersson, and Björn Ulvaeus, who adds "All our love" and a heart. In fine condition, with light scuffing. The record is included. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from REAL and a letter of provenance from the original recipient: "In 1978, I worked for ABC-TV as a staff costumer on the Olivia Newton-John TV Special, 'Olivia!' The guests included Andy Gibb and ABBA. They did a fantastic medley of their hits, and sang live, which was a rare thing for these types of shows at the time. I was working with costume designer, Fleur Thiemeyer, who asked if she could borrow my double-wrap belt to put on ABBA's Benny Andersson, which he wore on the show. This was a few years before ABBA disbanded in 1982, but I could certainly see the tension between all of them…At the conclusion of the taping, they surprised me with an autographed copy of their new album, which I present in the auction. I've never played it."
