We accompany Angela Linsmeier, Bärbel Steffen, Dominique Galli, Jürgen Blandowski and Micke Bayart in the mid eighties, covering small and major events involving members of ABBA for a German fan club publication named ABBA Fan-Blatt. In fact, by that time, ABBA had already disbanded as a group and the members had launched new careers. Björn and Benny were receiving attention for their musical, Chess, while Agnetha and Frida were releasing their own solo albums. In this book, we follow in the group members’ footsteps through articles from Fan-Blatt. The most striking feature, of course, is the fact that ABBA Fan-Blatt met the members and interviewed them on several occasions. These meetings took
place in connection with ABBA’s appearances in Germany, on visits to members’ homes in Sweden, at Polar Studios or in the Polar Office in Stockholm. A lot of praise must go to ABBA for the patient and friendly way they always received the members of the Fan-Blatt. For even if ABBA’s golden days were over, there were still a great many fans that were eager to be kept up to date about news of the group.
