When you compare the original 1978 picture sleeve it featured individual head shots. For the 2018 picture disc a group shot is featured, probably from the same photo shoot. Very nice, I do say I hope I get lucky and am able to snap one of these on the day!
Ah... Larks Tongues in ABBAspic. Wise marketing strategy, Polar!
Looks like a collectable record to me! Those days I am just tired of David Bowie records appearing everywhere in Record Store Day; it's becoming a "running gag" for me. Quite relieving to see ABBA foray into Record Store Day. I wonder if it's going to be in the USA? So far the Official Record Store Day UK website shows ABBA whereas the USA version does not...
So far it's been confirmed only in Germany and The Netherlands. Hopefully Sweden will release it too, as it was ABBA's last No.1 single there. But with just 1000 copies available I'm afraid it will be gone in a flash... Another ABBA related record rumoured to be released on the Record Store Day 2018 is Agnetha's Elva Kvinnor I Ett Hus album. Not confirmed yet, however.
So far, Germany, Netherlands, U.K., Australia, France and Ireland are confirmed for record store day. No go for North America, as of yet. I saw an up date for 2000 copies being made available This was not ever a major radio hit here in N. America the song came and went fairly quick, so I highly doubt any distributor will chance issuing it here! Too bad really, now I have to wait for one to come up for sale on EBay, which it undoubtedly will!!!!
Yes, I managed to snag 2 copies of the Summer Night City 7” at 2 separate stores in my home city of Vancouver! Both stores had 1 copy each, so I got extremely lucky, but I was up extra early and in line before stores opened. Has any one had a look as to what this item is fetching $$$ on EBay...it’s insane🤪🤪🤪
