Yet another tribute to the gorgeous Agnetha
Were nt Abba a synth group ?
Listen to this track, its basically synth and drum machine
is nt it ?
I grew up with ABBA - hey, living next door to them... always loved them. Perhaps a bit on and off but still... great songwriters and much more than just a disco/pop-act.
Dan Baird nailed it!

You got that one right I'm playing it now.
if mem serves they got one monster of a synth from Yamaha
back in 1975 one of only 2 built and that machine seems to be the key to their special abba sound .
The genius of ABBA was due to the brains Benny and Bjorn, they had a mathematical formula they followed almost exclusively for every ABBA song. I am not sure if they used drum machines or not, but it's possible.
As far as I know they stuck to a fairly regular rhythm group of, eh, live bass player and drummer. They probably used machines here and there but not a lot.
No one's posted SOS yet!!
Am I putting these youtube clips up properly? Help the simpleton if need be!
I fixed it for you Heedblerk, not a simpleton either.
Just copy the part after the = sign between the brackets, Magic's code does the rest for you.
