News   PHOTO CALL: Mamma Mia! Wins the Gold - Record, That Is

 

Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus of ABBA and Chess pose with the gold record plaques honoring the achievement the Mamma Mia! original cast recording, recorded in London, recently made. In order to go gold in the US, an album must sell over 500,000 "units" (CDs and/or cassettes). Original cast albums rarely go gold — recent OCRs that have are Rent, The Lion King and, the highest seller of all-time, The Phantom of the Opera.
