Disc 4

Since a number of songs on this disc are not common to the regular albums, I will note my thoughts on these.

1. Put On Your White Sombero: Sounds a litttle bit like Fernando. An interesting song.
2. Dream World: A fairly good song. Some Voulez-Vous sounds it seems are also included. Also some sample-like stuff from Does Your Mother Know.
3. Thank You For the Music (Doris Day Version): A 1920's version of the song, it seems like.
4. Hey Gamle Man! In Swedish. Sounds interesting and rather different.
5. Merry-Go-Round: Sort of a cute song.
6. Santa Rosa: Very early song that shows promise.
7. She's My Kind of Girl: Seems like it belongs in the 1960's. Sounds vaguely like a Dave Clark 5 song.
8. Medley (Pick a Bale of Cotton/On Top of Old Smokey/Midnight Special): I am extremely surprised that they did the first song since it is rather racist, to put it mildly.
9. You Owe Me One: An almost Arabic sound to the background at the start. The rest of the song is rather strange.
10. Slipping Through My Fingers/You and I: Both of these are good songs.
11. Abba Undeleted: A whole bunch of musical backgrounds, speaking, bits of songs, etc.
12. Waterloo, Swedish Version. It's neat to hear these three in the original language.
13. Ring, Ring: Swedish Version.
14. Honey, Honey: Swedish Version.
