Outtakes From the Album Cover Shoot for Abba’s “The Singles: The First Ten Years” (1982)

The Singles: The First Ten Years is a double compilation album by ABBA, released in November 1982. The album contained most of the band’s hit singles from their ten years together as recording artists, and included two new tracks: “The Day Before You Came” and “Under Attack”.

The Singles was released on CD in Canada only by Atlantic Records in 1987, but was quickly deleted in 1988 when Atlantic’s rights to the catalog expired. In the Spin Alternative Record Guide (1995), the compilation was ranked 80th on the book’s list of the “Top 100 Alternative Albums”.

Richard Cook in the New Musical Express described the collection as a “documentation of the group who altered the course of pop more than anyone else. It resulted in a seam of unbroken, highly individual pop music that in lifespan terms is still unmatched.”
