Napster Offers ABBA in MP3

Remember ABBA? I do. Napster just announced the debut of the complete catalog by the Swedish disco-group sensation in MP3 format and without DRM restriction.

“We are pleased to make the complete ABBA catalog available both for streaming and for purchase in MP3,” said Napster Vice President of Music Services Matthew Adell. “We strive to give music lovers the best experience and most options for enjoying digital music.”

ABBA achieved greater commercial success than any other international band of the 1970s. With its instantly recognizable synth-pop, light-hearted sound and vocals, ABBA scored a string of international hits like “Dancing Queen,” “Knowing Me, Knowing You,” and “Take a Chance on Me.” The Swedish foursome took the pop-music world by storm with its debut its album, Waterloo, in 1974. The group released six more albums over the next seven years, each of which enjoyed immense popularity in the United Kingdom, United States, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Scandinavian countries.

Now, do you remember them? I do. But I’m not buying. Mamma Mia!
