Hi, my name is Colin, im 48 ( I think, better ask the wife) I was born in 1967 and my earliest memory of Abba is around 1975, I guess as with most the songs and melodies caught me, then in 1976 as a 9 year old a blonde caught my eye. without going into too much I have a very very fond memories of my childhood and my grandparents associated with the music of Abba, I collected and was given many presents of books and LP's from '76 onwards, I remember as if it was yesterday my dad bringin home the 'Arrival' LP, TV was just as important to seeing Abba at the time. anyway I have photographed my childhood collection from 1976 onwards, every song, every picture, every book has a story, I remember every moment, culminating in Wembley Arena 1979.
thank you for the pictures and the story. it sounds familiar. can you please tell about the wembley concert? I who have never seen them live and will never see them live can only rely on the stories and the last live album to give us an idea how spectacular it must have been to be there.
