March 4th 1974 ABBA's second album was released in Sweden: Waterloo.
Hans Fridlund in Expressen newspaper wrote that he was sure it would sell like crazy and it did: in 4 weeks time 125,000 copies of the album were sold!
Fridlund compared the song Suzy-Hang-Around with the Beach Boys claiming that they sing better. The song was sung by Benny (his only solo on an ABBA song) and he had even written the lyrics by himself. A task usually done with Bjorn (and sometimes Stig). In later years it would be Bjorn writing al the lyrics.
These pics show ABBA in all the fashion glory of 1974.
