[notes derived from liner notes:]
1: Later also recorded by Frida (1975).
3: English version "Roly-Poly Girl" released by Svenne & Lotta (1975).
11: English version "Language Of Love" released by Lena Andersson (1971).
12: Later included on the 'international' version of the Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Frida [ABBA] "Ring Ring" album (1973).
18: Swedish version of "Merry-Go-Round".
23, 24: Reworked versions later released as Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Frida [ABBA] tracks (1972, 1973).
25: English lyrics made shortly after the release of "Lycka". Apparently not recorded until mid-70s, as a demo by Björn & Benny, possibly to be recorded by ABBA or as a demo for some foreign publisher.
[notes derived from carlmagnuspalm.com:]
*) The only omission is the mix of 'Merry-Go-Round' that was released as the B-side of the first ABBA single, 'People Need Love' [included on the 2001 reissue of the ABBA album "Ring Ring"].
13: The organ intro was recycled in the verses of the 1982 ABBA recording "I Am The City" (not released until 1993).
20 to 24: Due to original masters no longer existing, these tracks were mastered from vinyl (courtesy of Swedish collectors Frank Axelsson and Thomas Nordin).
22: The tune was written by Japanese composer Koichi Morita, with lyrics by Björn and Benny - but only B&B are listed as the writers in Universal Music Publishing's database, hence the CD bearing a credit to Björn and Benny only.
