Are you sure this is genuine? It looks like a bootleg to me. It's not on Amazon or any other site. And Quaver (whoever they are?) also have "Die Deutschen Singles" which again looks like it's been made up from YouTube rips.
Record companies do often licence out recordings to labels that specialise in these kind of re-releases. In the UK, the main ones are Edsel and Cherry Red. This is usually when the record company sees no commercial viability in releasing it themselves. Warner Music has its own Rhino label for this purpose though.
I imagine that these are just vinyl or YouTube rips made up for a CD, for those that don't know how to acquire it themselves. Made-to-measure, hence why they're sold out now. They'll be making a few more up. Avoid at all costs.
It even says "This is not an official release.,", it won't be pressed on CD but burned on CD-R. So basically, it's what you can do yourself at home. Unless they got their hands on the master tapes of the songs that only appeared on vinyl before (which I doubt), this is nothing to spend money for.
That must've been added, and the stuff about it being burned to CD-R, after Alex first found the site. I had a little look at it shortly after he posted the link, and I'm sure that info would've leapt out if it had been present (not that this ever looked as though it might be an officially sanctioned release, mind you).
It's a pity, though, that this is the only record of her back-catalogue that has not been re-released.
I hoped that the success of her comeback with "A" would make Warner consider re-releasing I Stand Alone but unfortunately they don't seem to be interested. Another chance is Agnetha's 70th birthday - I really hope for some special release. A DVD similar to Frida's would be fabulous but somebody commented that since she has recorded for all major labels during her active years, a whole career retrospective DVD or CD is highly unlikely. What a pity...
I would like to see Agnetha recording a self-penned album in Swedish to close her career it the way she started it. My Colouring Book is a great album, definitely my favourite of her English language recordings, but my absolute favourite is her album Elva Kvinnor I Ett Hus, closely followed by När En Vacker Tanke Blir En Song.
^Yes, Elva Kvinnor I Ett Hus is exceptional- her crowning achievement in a way. But for me, it's My Colouring Book- for various reasons... the songs are special to her and they're special to me for that very reason (and others). There's something very special about Agnetha singing in her native tongue and I listen to it often but I definitely prefer her singing in English, if only for that delicious accent. Seriously, I can see why her swansong in Swedish would be fitting and that would be great.
