I first heard this CD in college... it was filtering through the vents from the dorm room above mine! I went upstairs and knocked on the door... A handsome Spanish exchange student suddenly answered. "I am Alberto, and si, this is Abba." Intruiged (by everything), I stayed long enough to dub a copy onto cassette. Then his beautiful Spanish girlfriend showed up and I went back to my dorm room with only Abba to console me.
Though Alberto, college, and my worn-out cassette are only memories now, I have my CD to make it last forever. Abba is just as fab in Spanish and this CD is quite a conversation piece. You can always tell the true fans -- put this on and they go crazy wanting to know where they can buy it. If you love Abba, this is a great twist on the favorites. I highly recommend it!
(Handsome Spaniard not included.)

This was the first ABBA record I ever owned. Originally released in 1980, The LP originally titled "Gracias por la Musica" ("Thank You For The Music") featured some of ABBA's big hits (and a couple of lesser known songs) sung entirely in Spanish.

I must say (being a latino) that the girls sing wonderfully in Spanish. The star vocalist on this album is Agnetha, since she sings a huge bulk of the songs and her vocal work is superb. I prefer the Spanish versions of "Chiquitita", "Fernando", "Thank you for the Music" ("Gracias por la Musica") and "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme" ("Dame, Dame, Dame") over the original English versions. Main reason being is that the vocals and harmonies are far more clearer and pristine in these Spanish versions. Agnetha's voice sounds spotless in "Chiquitita", "Gracias por la Musica", "Al Andar" ("Move On"), and " Dame, Dame, Dame". We get to hear the delicacy and texture of her gorgeous voice more here than on ABBA's other albums. And since the songs here are not as textured and overdubbed like their English counterparts, we get to hear the delightful harmonies in all of their ABBA-esque splendour. Just listen to the chorus in "Chiquitita" and "Al Andar" and you will see what I mean. The English versions sound bigger but the Spanish versions are crisper, less intense production-wise but far superior in vocal sound and texture. Frida also shines in "Fernando", "Estoy Soñando" ("I Have a Dream") and "Conociendome, Conociendote" ("Knowing Me Knowing You").

"Dancing Queen" ("La Reina Del Baile") is a draw as I can't really decide which version of the song I prefer, they both have pros and cons. Vocally the girls sound great in the Spanish version but the overall production is slightly inferior such as the piano.

Even the most jaded palates will find this delightful. Although the Spanish translations are sometimes awkward, they're a joy to hear, and several of these tracks are mixed differently to their original English versions.
It may be just the excellent remastering, but tracks like "La Reina del Baile" ("Dancing Queen") and "Al Andar" ("Move On") sound cleaner and fresher than ever. Recommended for ABBA fans.

One of the joys of being into a group like ABBA is that every time you pick up one of their albums, you know that you'll be hearing a well polished piece of work. Not every single song may ring your bell, but it seems like there was always high quality work ethic put into each album.
This collection of ABBA's hits is one of their crowning glories that I think gets overlooked too often. The lyrics of hits like "Dancing Queen" and "Thank You For The Music" are translated beautifully into Spanish, retaining the original meaning of the song, and without awkward or incompetent rhymes.
One of my favorite tunes on this collection is "Dame! Dame! Dame! (Amor Esta Noche)," which we know as "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)." Out of all the sultry & saucy ABBA tunes, I always thought this song drove home the love-hungry theme better than any other. This Spanish cover captures the same exact passionate feeling, nothing diluted here!
There was a follow up to this CD called "Mas Oro," which was not bad at all, but paled in comparison to this collection. If you are even just a casual ABBA fan, "Oro" is worth going out of your way to buy.

Abba is not just one of the best European groups of all time, they are one of the best groups ever worldwide! Oro, a collection of their Spanish tracks, proves that a great band sounds good in any language! Frida and Agnetha are just as powerful on the Spanish versions of 'Dancing Queen' and 'Fernando.' So, why did they record in Espanol anyway? Well, their English tunes made a huge impact worldwide, accept in Latin America. Thus, they decided, in the late 70's, to re-record some of their best songs in Spanish to break into the Latino market. Let's just say, it did the trick! Within a short amount of time, they were topping the charts from Mexico to Argentina. Abba were way ahead of their time, and continue to have success because of this. Even if you don't speak Spainsh, this album is still highly enjoyable from start to finish. Spanish, German, French, Swedish, and English: Abba recorded in all these languages during their time together. And managed to sound magical in each one.
