EU PAL DVD Pressing. For four decades Frida?s distinctive voice has mesmerized us in everything from 60s schlager, to big band jazz in which her voice hits notes with precision, elegance and skill, to ABBA?s decade-long international success with Frida and Agnetha?s voices creating unique resonance, to her work post-ABBA and the release of three very different and exciting albums in the 80s and 90s. This year Frida celebrates her 60th birthday with the release of this special box set collection of her four solo albums and DVD (PAL/Region 0). Recorded in 1975 as Frida was in the middle of her ABBA career, Frida Ensam was influenced by the ABBA sound and included the Björn and Benny-penned 'Fernando' in Swedish, a song that would later become a staple of ABBA?s repertoire. Following ABBA?s breakup in 1982, Frida recorded 'Something?s Going On' in Polar Studios with Phil Collins. The album was a huge success. In 1984 Frida teamed up with another talented Englishman, Steve Lilywhite, behind the mixer. The result was the innovative, very modern 'Shine'. In 1996 Frida recorded her most recent album, Djupa Andetag, in Swedish with producer Anders Glenmark. From the breathtaking Swiss Alps, Frida shares with us her thoughts on her influences, musical role models, fans, her development and her private life and their impact on her 40-year music career. The DVD contains over three hours of clips from Swedish television appearances as well as videos spanning Frida?s career, and her work with Phil Collins and other international stars. Follow Frida from her 1967 debut and breakthrough in Hylands hörna to her favorite club in Zermatt in the summer of 2005. *Please note you will need an All Code DVD player to view. Polar. 2005.
Frida....at her best!!

"This box set comprises all of Frida's major work before, during ABBA & after ABBA until last year. All fans will appreciate the rare footage inclusions of early Frida (Anni-Frid) on various variety shows and all her 80's solo vdeo's. Universal has painstakingly produced a box set worthy of casual admirers and fans alike. You will not be dissapointed with your purchase.
You will discover or re-discover a whole, fresher, relaxed Frida."

"This boxset is just what all the Abba fans were hoping for. Enjoying her voice and see the dvd with all her videos is such a bonus for her fans. The videos are sharp with excellent sound. It was great to hear her speak about her career and opinions on her excellent work. I see a lot of listings where the dvd is in pal, I purchased my and it was listed as ntsc region 0. at a very good price. The only negitive comment about this project is the comment from Frida commenting that this is her last project. It would be great to have her continue her solo career.
