The recording is notable for being the only ABBA song to include vocalists other than the four band members; the final chorus features a children's choir from the International School of Stockholm. In the UK, the single was issued in a lavish gatefold sleeve, intended as a souvenir for UK fans who had attended the Wembley concerts the live recording of "Take a Chance on Me" being from one of them. The inner gatefold was effectively an advert for ABBA's existing albums released in the UK, but the back cover featured a message from ABBA themselves regarding the Wembley concerts, together with their signatures.
The front cover used the same live photo of ABBA as the worldwide release, but artwork and fonts were different. The live version of "Take a Chance on Me" on the B-side was one of three mixes of the same recording to be issued.
Released soon after the concerts, this version is thought to be the genuine recording.
