(all photos by Wolfgang Heilemann)
Wolfgang "Bubi" Heilemann arrived in Stockholm for an extended photo session which lasted all day. ABBA posed in different outfits. The pictures taken that day would be distributed to the media all over the world and used on the record covers. The 1978 single "Summer Night City" was the first record with pictures from this session.
