ABBA is joining the Beatles, Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley by releasing a collection of "Number Ones," due on CD and DVD Nov. 21 via Universal Music Enterprises. The two releases share the same songs except for "Ring, Ring," which appears only on the DVD.

The criteria for what counts as a "number one" has not been announced; on the Billboard Hot 100, ABBA's lone chart-topper was "Dancing Queen" in 1976. But the group scored numerous No. 1 hits internationally, including seven in the United Kingdom.

The DVD is expected to feature a host of TV performances, including "Top of the Pops," the Norwegian show "Hei Sveis!" and the BBC's "Late Late Breakfast Show."

ABBA has been repackaged on numerous occasions in the past decade; the most successful such compilation, "Gold," has sold 4.2 million copies since its 1993 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Here is the track list for "Number Ones" (CD):

"Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)"
