When ABBA arrived in the US via Atlantic Records in the early/mid 70's; the earliest work you could get of them was the "Waterloo" album. Although some tracks from "Ring Ring" did show up on their "Greatest Hits" LP in '76, most of us had never heard the rest of the tracks from this, their first album. I am delighted to finally be able to add this first album to my ABBA collection. Although some people find the tracks on this album to be inferior to their later releases, I find this album to reflect their "roots" if you will. Most of the tracks reflect a happy upbeat time in the groups career; a far cry from some of their later releases which reflected sadder times in the members personal lives. The best tracks on the disc include "Ring Ring," "Another Town, Another Train," "He Is Your Brother," and "Rock 'N Roll Band." And yes, while it is easy to tell that this album was the beginning of what would become a phenominal sensation all over the world, the mood of this album is more true to life of what the group was all about. If you're a fan of the group as a whole, you will want this album. If you're only a fan of their biggest hits, you might want to skip it.

I'm an avid ABBA collector and have bought all the special editions to date and this one I'm sad to admit is a pretty poor effort on Polar's part and really appears to be solely a money grab. It really does ABBA no justice. Some of the other special edition CD/DVD's have ranked from superb to average and it begs the question why Polar gave so much tender, loving care to some but not all? The production values in some were outstanding and the DVD's featured alot of content, in some cases over an hour, but this Ring Ring "special" edition gives you only 14 minutes with 4 videos. I repeat that, only 14 minutes and one of the videos is a Ring Ring version that has an Agnetha "stand-in"! I couldn't believe it. They explain that Agnetha was very pregnant at the time and ABBA was under pressure to release a video for the album of their best song and that most people had never seen Agnetha and wouldn't know the difference. That may well be true given it was ABBA's first album and they were relatively unknown but of all the other Ring Ring videos out there that include Agnetha why did they have to pick this one? I suppose being a seldom seen video makes it a collectors item and I wouldn't mind if it was one of many videos included on the DVD but when there are only 4 videos (one being a sleeve gallery only) its unacceptable. The other videos are People Need Love that Agnetha is actually in and a video of Benny explaining the Ring Ring songs sound and how it came about. Thats it folks. The CD itself of the album also disappointed but I must have gotten a bad copy. The sound was overly saturated with bass and impossible to listen to at a normal volume without massive distortion. I got a replacement copy and that seemed to fix things and confirm I had a defective one.Read more ›

This album wasn't released in USA so I didn't own the CD until fairly recently, already having all the other ABBA albums. Technically this is not an ABBA album as it was originally released under the name of "Bjorn, Benny & Anna, Frida" in 1973. Recorded in the early seventies, the ABBA sound as we know it today is not present on this LP. In fairness, the group started of as being a duet with just Bjorn and Benny. In fact one of their singles, "She's My Kind Of Girl" is included in this set. Bjorn and Benny frequently asked their girlfriends (Agnetha and Frida) to record backing vocals for them and their voices gradually started becoming more and more prominent on the recordings. This LP is the result, no hint of the group's name ABBA which came a year later. So with this in mind, Ring Ring is a fascinating insight into the progression of the group in its earliest years. There are a few songs here that I don't like (unlike the later ABBA albums), and a few hidden gems (Another Town Another Train, I'm Just A Girl, Nina, Ring Ring). Definitely not their strongest but I wouldn't be without this CD.

To put it bluntly the worst songs ever made by ABBA are in this album but since this album has 12 songs to choose from there are still hints of future success of the group. At the time known as Agnetha Bjorn Benny And Frida the group messed around with different techniques to find the perfect sound for the group. Although not found in this album there are a few songs such as :RING RING , ANOTHER TOWN ANOTHER TRAIN AND NINA PRETTY BALLERINA show that this rookie group could go far if they worked more on their melody. This is a reasonable beginning but not too flash. Definately not a very good ABBA album but still they were only just starting out and the albums after that pretty much showed how well they could be. Die hard fans will love it but the rest of us stick to greatest hits albums to get the better of the songs on this album.

While hardly a masterpiece in the league of the great, late albums, 'Ring Ring' is a vast improvement on patchy albums like 'Waterloo'. The grotesque prog-rock indulgences that marred that work are largely absent; the one exception, 'I Saw it in the mirror' is redeemed by sad lyrics and moving backing vocals.
By this tage of their career, Abba had yet to find their true voice, so 'Ring Ring' largely comprises some excellent pastiches (eg the Carole King of 'Disillusion'; the Animals of 'She's My Kind of Girl').
Full of exhiliratingly tuneful dance pop, the Abba aesthetic can be glimpsed in the frothy stomp/melancholic subject matter of the title song; the haunting 'Another town, another train' reminiscent of the astonishing late ballads; and 'Nina, pretty ballerina', an early stab at what would become their euphoric masterpiece, 'Dancing Queen'.
