BENNY ANDERSSON ENTREVISTADO SOBRE / interviewed about ABBA'S "LIVE @ WEMBLEY ARENA"


BT es el único medio danés recibido por Benny en Estocolmo durante la presentación del nuevo álbum en vivo de Abba "LIVE AT THE WEMBLEY ARENA". Aquí reproducimos el artículo y la entrevista en inglés.

BT is the only Danish media which attended the launch of Abba's new live album "LIVE AT THE WEMBLEY ARENA" by Benny in Stockholm. Here is the article and interview.

It’s Saturday night November 10th 1979 The four Abba’er, Agnetha, Anni-Frid, Björn and Benny are on top of their career. Fantastic Four have just completed their first – and only – American tour, performing to full HOUSES in Europe, including five consecutive nights at a sold out Wembley Arena in London.
On the sixth and last night at the British National Arena culminate the four Swedes who this evening deliver one of their best concerts ever. A concert there in a few weeks for the first time released a live album with a mix, but otherwise unedited and impressive sound.
- The music appears exactly as it sounded that night in 1979, and I’m actually surprised how dynamic it sounds. It was me who was counting into each track, and I had so much adrenaline in the body, the pace is a little fast in some of the songs. But overall, we were not quite as bad, says Benny Andersson with a wry smile.
It’s Benny Andersson’s son Ludvig Andersson, who listened to hours of tape from ‘The Tour’ and after careful consideration chose that it was just that night, 10 November, to be released.
The women were here at the studio:
– I chose the evening, because it sounded like they had the most fun there. So yes, there are a few minor errors here and there, but it’s just PART of life experience, says Ludvig Andersson, while Dad (Benny) added that the other three members have approved the release. Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Fältskog were even in the studio at Skeppsholmen in Stockholm to listen through it.
- Frida was a little worried because she had a sore throat and was on medication throughout the week in London, but she ended up accepting what he says.
The tour, which was Abbas third and last before the group broke up in 1982, took place within the last two studio albums, and therefore one can not experience the hits like ‘The Winner Takes It All’, ‘Super Trouper’ and ‘Slipping Through My Fingers’ at the forthcoming live album. A fact which Benny Andersson boldly notes with a:
- Maybe we should take on a new tour to play all the songs this time? No, I’m  just joking. We should definitely not go on tour together. But I understand that Kate Bush has started to tour again. She could just call if she needs a pianist, he laughs.
The 67-year-old hit maker is still an active songwriter and musician and can be seen all around Sweden with his Benny Andersson Orchestra, and he and his son Ludvig is in the process of composing music for an upcoming Swedish fantasy film.  Though the many Abba songs will always be closest to his heart.
- The songs mean a lot to me. We are all proud of what we achieved with Abba. And I would like to think that the songs still hold, because they have a certain quality.

Durante la misma presentación Benny comentó que Agnetha debería grabar un nuevo álbum pero de sus propias composiciones y que él mismo le había intentado persuadir de ello, dado que el único tema inédito de este nuevo álbum es la canción compuesta por Agnetha "I'M STILL ALIVE" ("Sigo viva"), que ella cantó durante esa gira en los conciertos.

During the same presentation Benny commented that Agnetha should record a new album with her own songs and he himself had tried to persuade her of doing so, as the only unreleased track of this new album is the song, written by Agnetha "I'M STILL ALIVE", which she sang during this tour in the concerts.

Benny Andersson about the upcoming record
Abba is a closed chapter, however, has Benny Andersson tried to persuade Agnetha to record an album with his own material.
The singer refuses however.
- She will not listen to me, Benny Andersson says.
Last year, "A", Agnetha Fältskog's first solo album of new material in 26 years.
When the 30's journalists yesterday gathered in Benny's studio on Skeppsholmen to listen to the upcoming live album "ABBA live at Wembley Arena" Benny took the opportunity to give a quick review of Agnethaskivan.
-The Is okay, but I like her own songs best. She is an accomplished songwriter.
While she was here to listen to the live material, I told her to record her own songs, but she would not listen to me, says Benny with a wry smile.
On the upcoming live album by Abba, which is published on the 29th September, you can at least listen to a "new" recording and Agnetha.
On the album, there's "I'm Still Alive", a rarity that has remained unreleased all these years.
It's a good song actually. I think Agnetha wrote it specifically for the tour, said Benny since he played it up.
Popular
To a playback of 35-year-old live material attracts journalists from England, Germany and Australia are proof that Abba is still hot news material overseas. For the international press beats Benny once again stated that a reunion of Abba will never get rid of.
- We are all very proud of what we accomplished, and I was surprised by how good it sounded live when I listened to the old stuff, but we have no interest in being reunited and we have no unreleased songs left to give out.
"ABBA live at Wembley Arena" documenting Abbas last concert in London, the world tour in November 1979 A gig as it is said that both Joe Strummer (The Clash) and Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) visited. Parts of it were filmed by SVT, but this is the first time the concert is available in its entirety.
Benny's son Ludvig Andersson has made the selection, and even mixed media.
- The basic idea was to keep everything. Nothing has been changed or added afterwards, except the drum sound that was missing a song.
