ABBA ‎– I Have A Dream

Genre:

Year:
Notes:
"I Have A Dream", the last single off "Voulez-Vous", was released in December 1979 – after the release of "Greatest Hits Vol. 2" (which didn't include "Dream") and the (then) new hit "Gimme Gimme Gimme" – and is the only ABBA song to include vocalists other than the four band members; the final chorus features a children's choir.

The main B-side was "Take A Chance On Me (Recorded Live at Wembley)", others being "As Good As New", "Does Your Mother Know", "Rock Me", "Angeleyes" and "Voulez-Vous". 1980 issues came with "Conociendome, Conociendote". Some versions feature "Estoy Soñando", Spanish version of "I Have A Dream", as A-side. "As Good As New" was the A-side (and made #1) in Mexico. Venezuelan version couples "Estoy Soñando" with the English original.

For cover art, most releases used the 'live' design. The 'nudes' design was used exclusively on the Bolivian 7" (also appears on the back sleeve of the Uruguay 12"). Mexican "As Good As New" 7" has exclusive cover art. Argentinian release reuses the "Does Your Mother Know" sleeve.

For releases that couple "I Have A Dream" with "Chiquitita", see "Chiquitita (Spanish Version)".

First label of this type for an ABBA release. Others were for Super Trouper and Head Over Heels, plus three albums.

Duration of b-side doesn't appear to be shown on the label, but likely to be the same or similar as other Epic releases of this title. Last ABBA release on orange Epic label.
