Forum - General - RIP Compilations Chart

On 14 June 2021 we saw the final Compilations Chart.
This chart began on 1 July 1979 and was called the Mid Range (budget) album chart until 11 May 1980 when it became the Top Compilation Albums chart. In the beginning is also included various artist compilations.
The chart eventually became a fully fledged Top 10 based on sales.
In 2020 there was no chart for three months due to Covid-19. With the country in lockdown, shops were closed so it badly affected sales.
Sales had already begun to decline at that stage and by June 2021 it was decided to delete the chart completely as sales were so low.
To mark the passing of this chart I have compiled a Top 100 of all time list based on points. I will also post a few other things like number ones and statistics in coming weeks.
As the chart can no longer be viewed online, if anyone needs any information, please just ask in this forum.
