ABBA
Paris 1979 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Pavillon de Paris, Paris, France; October 23, 1979. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to the original taper; and to simonlec for sharing the show at Dime.

simonlec noted:

To mark 41 years to the day since my last of three ABBA concerts, Stafford, on November 12, 1979, I have uploaded the Paris show, which is the best quality recording I came across from the tour. There are a few blips/clips/cuts etc, and one song is omitted (assuming it was played), but overall it is great quality, and I thank the original taper!! Bjorn seemingly has to encourage the audience to get up “and dance in the aisles” at the start of Dancing Queen… we didn’t need any prompting at Stafford, where it happened about 30 minutes earlier, and so on two consecutive nights, there I was, right at the front, looking up and watching ABBA in all their glory (the originals, not some tribute band)… just wonderful!!…

  2. Wow! Thanks for another Christmas present. Pretty good sound recording. A great reminder of my youth! When I was around 13 - 14 years old, ABBA were my idols :-) Only later did I start listening to harder music. Thanks BigO!

  8. I’m nothing special, in fact I’m a bit of a bore
    If I tell a joke, you’ve probably heard it before
    But I have a talent, a wonderful thing
    ‘Cause everyone listens when I start to sing
    I’m so grateful and proud
    All I want is to sing it out loud
    So I say
    Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing
    Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
    Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty
    What would life be?
    Without a song or a dance, what are we?
    So I say thank you for the music
    For giving it to me
    Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk
    She says I began to sing long before I could talk
    And I’ve often wondered, how did it all start?
    Who found out that nothing can capture a heart
    Like a melody can?
    Well, whoever it was, I’m a fan
    So I say
    Thank you for the…

  13. I’ve got a feeling twenty-one
    Is going to be a good year
    Especially if you and me
    See it in together
    So you think twenty-one
    Is going to be a good year
    It could be good for me and her
    But you and her, no never
    I had no reason
    To be over optimistic
    But somehow when you smiled
    I can brave bad weather

  31. Eating higher quality ass out is my goal, HHH. I’ve been eating some pretty nasty ass lately, I think I’ll be more selective in 2021. Black and brown ass is tastier, it must be their diets. White vegetarians are the worst!

    By DD on Jan 1, 2021

  32. I’ll be the same jerkoff asshole no matter what. I’m sure as fuck not going to get any smarter in 2021, or any year.
