Yep, papa bear on the cover is none other than the for­mer ly­cra-lovin’ Benny from ABBA. Of course, now he’s in his seven­ties, Benny is not wear­ing nearly as much span­dex, but he is keep­ing him­self busy. As well as over­see­ing the up­com­ing Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! movie se­quel, Benny’s put to­gether a lovely col­lec­tion of him tin­kling the ivories on favourite songs from his ca­reer. While this could have ended up sound­ing like the muzak streamed in the den­tist’s wait­ing room, luck­ily the songs (six from ABBA and six from the ’80s Chess mu­si­cal amongst the 21 “mem­oirs”), el­e­vate this to some­thing, well, ABBA-so­lutely spe­cial. Thank you for the mu­sic, Benny.
