Abba`s greatest hits collection `UK`s 2nd biggest selling album ever`

London: Abba`s greatest hits collection has overtaken sales of The Beatles` Sgt. Pepper`s Lonely Hearts Club Band to become the UK`s second biggest selling album of all time.

According to the Official Charts Company, both albums have sold over 5.1 million copies in the UK, but the Swedish band`s 1992 greatest hits collection has now inched ahead of The Beatles` iconic 1967 album with 15,000 more sales, the Daily Star reported.

Bjorn Ulvaeus, who co-wrote many Abba hits, told the publication "it feels unreal, outselling the greatest record of all time."
