ABBA's 'Live at Wembley Arena,' recorded at 1979 London show, being reissued as three-LP vinyl set

January 28, 2020 8:00 AM

Polar/UMeA 2014 archival ABBA live album that features an entire performance recorded on November 10, 1979, at the final show of a six-concert residency that the Swedish pop legends played at London's Wembley Arena will be reissued as a three-LP vinyl set on March 13.

Live at Wembley Arena captured the group performing near the end of its last U.K. tour while promoting its then-latest studio album, 1979's Voulez-Vous. The album is packed with renditions of ABBA's biggest hits, including "Knowing Me, Knowing You," "Chiquitita," "Money, Money, Money," "SOS," "Fernando," "The Name of the Game," "Take a Chance on Me," "Does Your Mother Know," "Dancing Queen" and "Waterloo."

The record also features Agnetha Fältskog delivering a rare performance of "I'm Still Alive," a song she co-wrote with her ABBA band mate and then-husband Bjorn Ulvaeus that never appeared on any of the group's studio albums.

The three-LP edition of Live at Wembley Arena was mastered at London's famed Abbey Road Studios at half-speed, which results in higher-quality audio. It can be pre-ordered now.
