Hitkrant, 1977: Ring Ring

And now let's cut to the chase: the ABBA album 'Ring Ring' has not, we repeat: not, been released in the Netherlands. The many readers that have written to us about this subject in the past few months can stop writing now: one of our readers has sorted it all out in detail, at the expense of several phone calls to England and Sweden. 'Ring Ring' (and now we are talking about the song) is included on 'ABBA's Greatest Hits'. The album 'Ring Ring' has only been released in Sweden by Polar Music. Satisfied?

Very interesting, I wonder why it was never released there?

It wasn't released in the US nor Latin America either.

It would have been natural to release the album in Holland at the time, especially since 'Ring Ring' (the single) was a top 5 hit in the Dutch charts in 1973.

The album was finally released in Holland in 1979 under the title 'Honey, Honey', with a different cover and a slightly different track listing, but then remained an obscure fan-item.
