As featured in the new CMP Complete Recording Sessions, innit! There's a page showing three or four photos taken from the same recording session. Apparently a 'project' featuring more taken from the same session is in the pipeline.
Frida Throughton's back AGAIN with the amazing Jo Grant!!! (Dr Who) I couldn't resist it.
I beg to differ though 😆 Frida's pulling some Sophia Loren looks based on the brown fur coat while Agnetha's glorifying sleepiness with the purple pyjamas... Agnetha's outfit reminds me of something Twiggy (Lawson) would wear 😍
..That looks like one of these awkward family photos I've seen, though
I've often wondered (including previously on ABBAchat) what the backstory was regarding Frida's clothes and apparent demeanour throughout this 'ABBA's Greatest Hits' session. Although there was often a competitive chemistry in their photos, this thread generally demonstrates that the girls didn't usually try to steal a march on each other in terms of outfit; if one wore casual, the other did too. Yet in this session, Agnetha has clearly gone to a lot of effort (braided plaits, high-laced shoes, accessories etc), whereas Frida looks as if either the shoot has been sprung upon her by surprise, or that she isn't in the best of moods, or both. It's not as if she didn't have the Indian outfit (see the very first pic in this thread).
Agnetha's pics by the ornamental pond are among her most popular, but Frida doesn't even seem to be engaging directly with the camera on most of the shots. Most unusual, at least until she and Benny split up years later.
