Greatest Hits

Greatest Hits was first released in Sweden on November 17, 1975.

This compilation album was rush-released to counter expected import sales of similar collections released by licencees in Europe. The tracks, taken from ABBA’s first three albums, had all been single sides somewhere in the world. The song ’Fernando’ was added when Greatest Hits was released in certain countries during the first few months of 1976.

The bizarre cover painting on the Swedish release was made by artist Hans Arnold. It was originally awarded as a prize from a magazine where ABBA were voted Artists Of The Year. The group liked it so much that they used it for the gatefold sleeve of the album.

In 2006, Greatest Hits was reissued on CD in a miniature replica gatefold sleeve, featuring the original Swedish cover.
