The Compilation chart began it's life in July 1979. Initially it was called the Mid-Range chart and included budget priced albums from other artists as well as various artists. In 1980 the name switched to the Compilation chart that we know today with just various artists listed. The size of the chart was very inconsistent but is mainly a Top 5. Most of these charts can be seen at the official website nztop40.co.nz but it's these charts here that are missing. Hope you enjoy them.
