Bjorn and Benny met in the summer of 1966 and they started writing songs together. The first one being Isn't It Easy To Say that was recorded by Benny's band The Hepstars with Bjorn on guitar.
In late 1969 they recorded the song She's My Kind Of Girl for a Swedish soft porn movie and somehow this song ended up in Japan and became a huge hit there as. The Japanese single sleeve is shown here.
In the autumn of 1970 Bjorn and Benny released their first album called Lycka. Both Agnetha and Frida sang backing on Hej Gamble Man making this the first record featuring all future ABBA members.
The pics are alternate ones from the session for the album sleeve.
