Paid quite a lot for the Box Set on Amazon. But you get a lot of 'bang for the bucks' and have never regretted the outlay. The DVD is great and although over three and a half hours long isn't heavy going because it's nicely divided up in to the various decades, before, during and after ABBA. And of course Frida keeps it light hearted in the intervening interviews. Only minor regrets are that the whole of 'Mitt I Livet' wasn't shown and that 'Ole Lukkoje' wasn't picked instead of the Hawaiian number from 'Nar Stenkakan Slog' which even Frida has a laugh about. Saltwater and that nice Wonderful World duet with Marie Fredriksson would have been good too. But only a small quibble really because it's packed with excellent stuff. Interesting booklet as well. Along with the four re-mastered CD's it's a great accompaniment to the 1967-72 release.
I read after the release the people that put this together never knew about The Saltwater clip, which seems strange the CD is great as you said you get a lot. Only wish Agnetha would consider doing something like this in the future Maxisaxi New Zealand

Re : Saltwater. Does seem odd that they would be unaware of it. Maybe it was because of some copyright issue. Frida's version was for charity. Julian Lennon and/or his record label may have agreed to that but not to be used further. Is it known if Agnetha has been approached for a similar DVD compilation of her works? I'd be really surprised if she hasn't.
