ABBA ‎– Super Trouper / The Piper

Notes:
The second single from the album with the same title, both released in November 1980. "Super Trouper" had been written as a last-minute addition to the album and it even re-used the chord structure of "The Winner Takes It All" - yet it was almost as successful in the charts as "Winner".

B-side on most releases was "The Piper", but Brazil opted for "On And On And On". In Australia and Japan, "On And On And On" had already been released as single (using the "Super Trouper" single artwork and it's B-side), so different B-sides were used: "Happy New Year" in Australia and "If It Wasn't For The Nights" (from "Voulez-Vous") in Japan. A new sleeve design was created for the Japan release, but Australian single came in a generic sleeve. In Chile, "Felicidad" (Spanish version of "Happy New Year") was used as the B-side.

Is there a UK A-label promo copy of Super Trouper? I don't see it listed here at Discogs

I don't think this should be marked as a reissue. It's the release for French territory, where ABBA was distributed by Vogue. The other French 7"(http://www.discogs.com/ABBA-Super-Trouper/release/358175) was most probably manufactured only for export to Germany, where ABBA was distributed by Polydor. Thus none should be considered a reissue.
