Description

Very rare fully signed copy of Waterloo by ABBA. Signed in blue ink to the front cover by Agnetha Fältskog, Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

Waterloo is the second studio album by the Swedish pop group ABBA. It was originally released in Sweden on 4 March 1974 through Polar Music. The album’s title track won ABBA the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest.  The original 1974 Polar Music edition of the album opens with the Swedish version of the title track and closes with the English language version. The American version of the album, released through Atlantic Records, closes with a 1974 remix of “Ring Ring”. In the United Kingdom/Ireland and several other European markets, the original 1973 version of “Ring Ring” was added as track 6 on side 2. The cover features the sub-title “Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha & Frida” although some editions replaced ‘Agnetha’ with ‘Anna’ – by which Agnetha Fältskog was known in some countries.

Waterloo peaked at the top of the charts in Sweden and Norway, charting highly in many other countries as well. In 2004, it was certified platinum in Germany, thirty years after its release.  Waterloo was the group’s first album released in most countries outside Scandinavia, and the first to be credited to “ABBA” (the band was originally referred to as “Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Anni-Frid”. However, to avoid confusion, they were called “ABBA (Björn, Benny, Agnetha and Frida)”. The “Honey, Honey” single was the first release to refer to the group as ABBA and nothing else.

In recent years’ Russian authorities have increasingly tightened the regulations around shipping to their country. In 2016 a temporary ban on private individuals importing non-document shipments to other private individuals was in effect, with no definite end date given. In less formal terms, this means that if you want to buy a signed record from us and you live in St Petersburg, you need to have it sent to a business where you can collect it.

If you aren't able to collect your order, businesses in Russia are free to ship to other businesses, or private individuals, although the latter may involve extra paperwork. For businesses sending to private individuals, no tax or duties will be applied to shipments up to a value of EUR €1,000, or totaling 31kg per calendar month, anything above this will have duties and taxes applied. For all other shipments there is no import duty for packages below EUR €200 in value.
