The album first hit the top spot in its year of release (1992) and returned in 1999 for three more separate stints at No.1. Today’s chart confirms that Gold has again topped the UK Album chart. It is also the oldest album to reach the top spot in the UK chart. What an amazing feat!
At the time of writing, it holds the sixth ‘Most Chart Weeks’ of any UK album position – 365 weeks in the Top 75 and 708 weeks in the UK Top 200.
As we now know, there has been no re-release of Gold (so far, anyway) in the UK (the version on sale currently is the 30th Anniversary edition). More ABBA Gold is, however, scheduled for release on August 25 and available now at amazon.co.uk for £7.99 (see link left).
