The Super Trouper session - was taken at the Europa Studios in Mariehäll outside Stockholm in October 1980. ABBA were surrounded by their friends, acrobats, jugglers and sword-swallowers. The studio became a big circus. Thousands of pictures were taken that evening and the whole event was filmed as well. Some parts were used in the videos for "Super Trouper" and "Happy New Year".
On the first picture here you can clearly see ABBA's secretary and friend Görel Hanser (first row, white dress, the middle of the picture)
Also singer and friend Tomas Ledin is in the pictures. He is the guy with the red feather on his hat. You can see him in several pictures and he even made it on to the 7" single sleeve.
