CSPC: ABBA Popularity Analysis

Part 4 – Global Compilations IV


Gold is so much under the spotlight and the band remaining compilations sales are spread over so many LPs that we tend to forget about them. Still, since we listed Gold, following compilations already add for 11 million units sold.

Except 18 Hits that surprisingly left out Dancing Queen, all those releases follow the usual big hits pattern of the band with Arrival being the main provider. If you remember well, their big studio albums range sold in the 7 to 10 million range, as you should be understanding, the other part of the picture is just as big, if not bigger.

A last couple of complete career recordings albums – The Albums and Complete Studio Recordings, both from 2005 – sold a combined 400,000 units. As with Bob Dylan and Led Zeppelin similar packages, those sales are attributed to each studio album.

Johnny be Good

Any estimation on “Voyage” ?


“even becoming Australian biggest selling album ever at the time” should be “Australia’s”
“It hasn’t break records in Germany” should be “It hasn’t BROKEN records”.
I take it that this is not an native English-speaking site?


“I take it this is not an native English speaking site”, should be “…a native…”

Yes, though, English is not the native tongue used, in the majority of articles.

“They haven’t quite stop there”
Should be “stopped” (not stop). Need a proof-reader! ;-0


Is it me or was much more expected from their studio albums???


All of their studio albums must be about 50 million sales.


Where are you getting this number from?


El álbum Voulez Vouz aquí tiene 578.000 ventas en streams, pero en Most streamed albums (all-time) aparece con más de 800.000.000 streams en spotify, así que supongo que hay error en uno de los números.
