It is still one of the largest selling 'live' albums of all time, behind Garth Brooks' "Double Live", "Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band Live 1975 - '85" and "The Eagles Live".

1974: A seven piece group called Blue Swede became the first Swedish act to top the US charts when their version of "Hooked On A Feeling" went to number one. Although the arrangement brought a fresh sound to the old B.J. Thomas hit, the single didn't chart at all in the UK.
