Mamma Mia! Original Cast Recording is the original cast album for the 1999 English stage musical Mamma Mia!. The album was released in 1999 and it reached No.56 in the UK album chart, with 2 weeks on the chart. Mamma Mia! reinvigorated the popularity of ABBA (the film soundtrack was the best selling album of the week and several songs made the top #75 in the UK singles chart). The re-interest in this 1999 Original London Cast album caused it to reach #12 in the UK Album Chart, having charted at #16 a week earlier. It features performances by the original London cast of the musical including Lisa Stokke, Siobhán McCarthy and Hilton McRae. The album was produced by the two male members of ABBA, Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus

The album featured a number of ABBA's best known songs, including the title track, "Dancing Queen", "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)" and "Thank You for the Music".[1]
