Thoughts and observations on the Swedish foursome
The Waterloo album had the group's new name as well as their old one on the sleeve.

If you've read ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions, you may recall there were a number of "sidebars" - additional articles focusing on certain aspects - throughout the book. ABBA On Record (abbaonrecord.com) will have such articles as well.
Right now I'm working on a detailed article that will explore how the group changed their name from Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Anni-Frid to ABBA. Unfortunately, so many contradictory accounts have been doing the rounds over the years that it's impossible to arrive at a definite truth, but I will at least be able to tell the story in some detail. It's this kind of challenge that makes my job so interesting - I hope you will enjoy reading the article in the finished book.
