Gemini is an album by Gemini released in 1985.[1] The album features songwriting contributions from artists such as Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, formerly of ABBA, and Anders Glenmark and Ingela Forsman. Two songs were of particular interest: "Slowly", a song written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, was previously recorded by ABBA's Anni-Frid "Frida" Lyngstad and the unreleased ABBA song "Just Like That" was re-written and included on this LP. Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus contend that the inclusion of this new version of "Just Like That" means that the ABBA version cannot be released, saying that there can't be two official versions of a song with the same title that are so similar and yet so different.

Recorded during sessions for the Gemini album, parts of the tune of 'When I Close My Eyes' ultimately found their way into the Andersson/Rice/Ulvaeus musical Chess (in the London production's finale, in the Broadway production's song "Lullaby (Apukád erős kezén)", and throughout the Swedish production). Gemini's version was eventually released on their 2005 compilation album Det bästa med Karin och Anders Glenmark, for which it received a new backing track[citation needed].
