ABBA - The Visitors (Extended version) (1981)

Here's a cool video someone made and uploaded on YT. ABBA in 1981 were sort of coming to an end (bit like Bjorn Borg) but this song is a gem. Bit reminiscent to ELectric Light Orchestra. What do others think ?

I'd not heard this unofficial remix before, Rob. Sounds excellent. Thanks for posting.

It's without question ABBA's most diverse recording and one that has grown on me in recent years. Though I wouldn't go along with those who say that this is the route ABBA would have continued on, if they had not disbanded. The final recordings from 1982 [released and otherwise] - for the majority - show in fact that they were returning to a more basic pop ethic.

P.S. Agnetha is said to be making a comeback with a brand new album of ORIGINAL material [her first since 1987!]. For more, read here > http://www.iphpbb.com/board/ftopic-3065 ... 12943.html
