The first collection of "music videos" to be pressed on LaserVision, ABBA arrived during the later part of
1980. ABBA was pressed late in DiscoVision's career; a time when CAV discs had reached a better quality.
The defect rate for copies of ABBA was low compared to other DiscoVision titles.
On some copies of the disc where the music from the end of side 1 continues into the side break graphics. To
date, there are up to 13 different masters attributed to this title. Certain copies of ABBA have the
LaserVision logo on the disc's label and/or jacket, others do not.
The Video transfer is excellent, however the source material varies from video to video. The audio presented
on this disc is possibly the best DiscoVision ever produced. It doesn't come close to the same audio you'll get
off ABBA Gold, a compilation of the groups music on CD, but it's still excellent for DiscoVision.
ABBA has never been re-issued on LaserDisc. However, most of the videos from this disc have re-surfaced
on the collection "ABBA GOLD" which is currently available on PolyGram Video.
