Abba: Belly to Belly, Butt to Butt,Sweden Sends Us Rock and Roll Smut

Ron Ross, Phonograph Record, December 1975

A LOT OF PEOPLE didn't like Napoleon, but nobody doesn't like gurls. Which may account for the success with which Abba's top five smash of 1974, 'Waterloo', swept across country after country. Flo and Eddie faves Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson are the writers behind the '70s most under-rated hit factor. And Abba-ettes Frieda, a ravishing redhead, and Anna, a pulverizing platinum blonde, are the vivaciously vocal reasons you want to send any kind of help they need the minute 'S. O. S.', their current smash, hooks you like no bunch of Bay City boychicks has yet managed.
