ABBA Greatest Hits Vol. 2 gatefold sleeve LP hand signed on the front cover in blue ink by Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

This is the rarer “Vogue” label release of Greatest Hits Vol. 2a compilation album by Swedish pop group ABBA, released in October 1979 to coincide with their tour of North America and Europe (taking place between September and November 1979). It was ABBA’s second chart-topping album of the year, the first being Voulez-Vous, and contained the brand new single “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)”, recorded in August 1979. A round-up of ABBA’s hits since their first compilation album (released in 1975), the album exclusively included material recorded between the years 1976 and 1979 (albums ArrivalThe Album and Voulez-Vous plus non-album single “Summer Night City”) – with one exception, “Rock Me” from 1975 album ABBA, issued as a single and became a top 5 hit in Australia and New Zealand after the release of the band’s first hits package Greatest Hitsand also part of the setlist on the 1979 world tour.

“Angeleyes” was included primarily due to its success as a single in the UK, where it was the lead track of a double A-side with “Voulez-Vous”. Elsewhere, “Voulez-Vous” had been the A-side in its own right but it was not included on the album. However, the track “I Wonder (Departure)” was not believed to have been released as a single anywhere, but was featured. Greatest Hits Vol. 2 received massive commercial success in Japan, selling in excess of 920,000 units on the chart (it was the best-selling album by non-domestic artists at the time, until Michael Jackson’s Thriller and the soundtrack of the motion picture Flashdance each sold over 1 million copies in the 1980s).
