Everybody loves ABBA - as proven by the blockbuster success of Mamma Mia! the movie.

Thank You for the Music traces the story of the Swedish supergroup - which has sold an estimated 350,000,000 records, tapes, and CDs - through their songs.

Starting with their world-conquering 1970s disco hits, it travels through to the more reflective 1980s, with The Winner Takes It All marking a watershed in their output.

Every tune from the musical and movie is covered, and glorious photographs form a sublime gallery of Abba's most dazzling costumes.

This is a unique in-depth study of the places, events, and characters that inspired an enduring catalog of classic songs.
