I live in Australia and have been a fan since ABBA first appeared on TV here in 1975. Follow my blogs for ABBA updates and check out my ABBA website ABBA Fanatic !

About This Blog

I created this Blog as a catalogue for articles and clippings about ABBA from Australian newspapers and magazines from the 70's. If you have any articles you would like to share, please email them to me to be included.
I am also interested in buying any Aussie articles or scrapbooks. Just drop me a line.

ABBA Alive And Well !

Juke - 19 March 1977

This fabulous 3 page spread first came to my attention when looking through Trudy's collection for probably the first time.
I must have said something about it at the time because for Christmas that year I received an awesome gift from Trudy - she had found someone to scan the 3 pages then join them to make a poster which was then laminated. What an absolute beauty ! It is quite large as Juke was a newspaper publication.
The first and second image are of this beautiful gift - the following ones are from separate pages I ended up acquiring later in a scrapbook.
Some really great live shots not seen elsewhere.
