During their 1977 tour through Europe and Australia ABBA wanted to do something special for the fans and this was a mini musical called The Girl With Te Golden Hair: a 20 minutes segment in the show, narrated by Frances Matthews.
The story was about a young girl (played by both Agnetha and Frida) who dreamed about becoming a singer but sadly became a victim of her own succes.
Songs in the musical were:
Thank You For The Music (with different lyrics than the later recorded version), I Wonder (Departure), Get On The Carousel (an 8 minute song with lots of instrumental breaks: this song is the only song out of the four never recorded in the studio) and I'm A Marionette.
Parts of the musical were added in ABBA The Movie.
