Famous ABBA Fans Talk: George Baker

Since the late Sixties, George Baker has been the leading force behind the Dutch hit group George Baker Selection and is responsible for numerous hits and two irrefutable world classics, Little Green Bag and Paloma Blanca, with the latter selling more than seven million copies, making it one of the most successful Dutch singles ever. The band has released twelve albums and several compilation albums and sold over 20 million records worldwide. These days, George still performs as a solo artist and occasionally as a special guest of the Reservoir Dogs Band. George enthusiastically accepted my invitation to talk about ABBA; after all, their career was peaking at a time when the George Baker Selection was also enjoying success across the world. I talked with George in a small but cosy café, prior to a wellattended open-air gig in the north of Holland.
