Then join us today as we explore 7 of the rarest and most valuable ABBA records on the used vinyl market!

1. Voulez-Vous

Value: £1,695.50

This is the sixth studio album by the Swedish supergroup ABBA which was released on 23 April 1979, yielding five hits, all of them big 1979 singles in Britain – “Chiquitita”, “Does Your Mother Know”, “I Have a Dream” and the double A-side “Voulez-Vous”/”Angeleyes”.


2. Arrival

Value: £1,671.70

By the time ABBA began working on their fourth album in August 1975, they had achieved a modest level of success around the world. It was with Arrival, however, that they would achieve global superstardom, featuring some of their greatest hits.


3. Waterloo

Value: £1,325.55

This is the second studio album by the Swedish pop group ABBA, and the first released internationally, originally released on 4 March 1974 in Sweden through Polar Music.


The album’s title track won ABBA the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest and became a global hit, launching the group’s career proper.

4. The Visitors

Value: £1,315.83

With The Visitors, ABBA took several steps away from the “lighter” pop music they had recorded previously, and the album is often regarded as a more complex and mature effort. Nowhere is a light track like “Super Trouper” to be found – instead we find break-ups and cold-war themes!

5. Voyage

Value: £1,315.83

With ten songs written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, it is the group’s first album of new material in forty years. It is also the first album without long-time bassist Rutger Gunnarsson and drummer Ola Brunkert. Released in small batches, original pressings of this record, will no doubt fetch a great deal when put up for sale.


6. Super Trouper

Value: £746.65

Led by the international hit “The Winner Takes It All”, Super Trouper was the group’s sixth chart-topping album in the UK. It was also the best-selling album in Britain in 1980. The previous year’s divorce between Björn and Agnetha was explored in “The Winner Takes It All”, and the members’ lives in Stockholm high society circles influenced the lyrics for “On and On and On”.

7. Ring Ring

Value: £708.80

Initially credited to Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Frida, this was ABBA’s debut album, an accessory to any vinyl collection, released in Scandinavia on 26 March 1973, and later in a limited number of other territories, including West Germany, Australia, South Africa, and Mexico, through Polar Music.
