Hitkrant, 1977: ABBA's film début
This news reached us this week through a telephone conversation with Stig Anderson, their manager. He told us that it's going to be an acted documentary with - among other things - scenes from the recent world tour, the tour that paid a visit to Amsterdam as well. The music in this film will be composed and performed by ABBA and the soundtrack will be available in the shops in the middle of October. By doing this, ABBA is completely following the Beatles' example who also made a movie like this in 1964, called 'A Hard Day's Night'.
There are also plans in the direction of a musical. The spectators at the Jaap Eden concert have already been able to get a preview of this modern day fairytale. If this music is going to be put on record too, there will be plenty of new stuff to enjoy in the near future. Long live ABBA!
