The album wasn't released worldwide initially but it was a big hit in the territories that it was released in, notably topping the charts in Belgium. The first song "People Need Love” was recorded in the spring of 1972, but it was only after the title track "Ring Ring” became a hit, that the four members decided to go on working together as a permanent group.

Folks familiar with ABBA's singles from their fiveyear stranglehold on AM radio in the late70s may be surprised by this the Swedish foursomes 1973 debut Not only is the title tracka runnerup in the 1973 Eurovision Song Contestthe only tune that ever shows up on the groups many anthologies the other 11 songs show only traces of the compositional maturity lyrical depth and production flourishes that make ABBAs later work so intoxicating

Instead RING RING is a sterling example of early70s bubblegum not really that different from the Partridge Family or Andy Kim Most surprising may be how many of the songs feature the lead vocals of Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson in addition to and in some cases instead of AnniFrid Lyngstad and Agnetha Faltskog Whoever is singing songs like Shes My Kind of Girl and Love Isnt Easy make RING RING a package of pure chewy pop confections
