The first pop cd in which band
The world's largest earthworms are found in?
In 1982, the first pop album in compact disc format in Germany came off the line. The album? The Visitors the eighth and final studio album of the Swedish pop band ABBA.
Although it was the first pop album, it was the fourth of the first series for the CD format. The first test squeeze took place in 1979, a recording by Richard Strauss & # 39; An Alpine Symphony ( An Alpine Symphony ) by the Berliner Philharmoniker. The first public demonstration took place in 1981 on the BBC television program Tomorrow's World (Phillips used the Bee Gees album Living Eyes for the demo). The first commercial CD of all genres, though little known, was released in 1982 shortly before the ABBA album (Claudio Arrau's 1979 performance of Chopin Waltzes). A funny fact about the last in our list: Phillips invited Claudio Arrau to his factory in Germany to push the button and start the first commercial CD run.
