Album chart by Stichting Nederlandse Top 40Edit

From 1969 to 1999, an alternative weekly album chart was published by offshore radio station Radio Veronica (1969-1974) and the Stichting Nederlandse Top 40 (1974-1999). This chart varied in length from a top 20 (1969-1971 and from 1972-1974) to a top 50 (1971-1972 and 1974-1985), a top 75 (1985-1991) and a top 100 (1991-1999). This album chart was regarded by many as the official one, since it was widely published while the chart listed above wasn't (not until 1993). The Top 40's album chart was terminated in July, 1999 when it was amalgated with the Album Top 100 listed above.
