More ABBA Gold: More ABBA Hits is a compilation album by Swedish pop group ABBA. Released in 1993, it was the follow-up to the highly successful Gold: Greatest Hits, released the previous year, and went on to sell 3 million copies.

Contents

While Gold: Greatest Hits had showcased nineteen of the group's biggest and most recognisable hits, this left out a number of other sizeable international hits, such as "Summer Night City", "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" and "Angeleyes". These were included here as well as some of ABBA's lesser-known hits from the time when their popularity was declining, such as "Head over Heels" and "The Day Before You Came." Also included are several B-sides and album tracks, plus one previously unreleased track; "I Am the City", dating back to ABBA’s final recording sessions in 1982.

More Gold: More Hits was re-released in 1999, and again in 2008, coinciding with the release of the film Mamma Mia!. The Australian release featured the European track list, not the Australasian track list on the 1999 issue.

Track listing

All tracks written by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, unless otherwise noted.

25th anniversary edition

Like Gold: Greatest Hits, a 25th anniversary edition of More Gold: More Hits was released in 1999. A 4:27 edited version of "The Visitors" was replaced by the original 5:49 version, while an alternate mix of "Lovelight" was replaced by the version originally released in 1979. In Australia, the track list was changed. As "I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do" and "Ring Ring" had been added to the domestic version of Gold: Greatest Hits, these were removed, along with "Lovelight" and "Cassandra". Instead, the three songs that had been removed from the domestic version of Gold: Greatest Hits —"Super Trouper", "I Have a Dream" and "Thank You for the Music"—were included. The disc is also coloured gold and there is a booklet with notes, photos and discography.
