The CD features the latest remastered version of the album, while the DVD features newly remastered versions of all the video clips featured on the original DVD. Taking full advantage of the progress in digital technology since the clips were last remastered in 2002, Cutting Room Studios video retouch expert Niklas Hammarbäck restored all 19 videos. You have never seen them like this before!


Niklas Hammarbäck here at Cutting Room Studios worked on every frame of every video to make sure the restoration process was up to the ABBA Gold standards. The DVD will also include bonus selections in the shape of “before-and-after” split-screen comparisons of five original film clips and the remastered versions of those clips. The new ABBA Gold DVD also features a recently discovered archive find: a cartoon version of ‘Money, Money, Money’, made circa 1977. This very rare clip of ‘Money, Money, Money’ was made by the Australian production company Reg Grundy’s , but was only ever screened briefly during ABBA’s heyday and has never been seen in complete form since. ABBA Gold Special Edition also features a brand new essay on the album by Elisabeth Vincentelli, author of the books ABBA Gold and ABBA Treasures.

The ABBA Gold CD/DVD Special Edition will be released in a so-called flip-tray with a slip case. The worldwide release date is November 29, 2010, although dates may vary from territory to territory.
