GUEST,Ray Official Folk Albums Chart (16) RE: Official Folk Albums Chart 03 Oct 20


I too was concerned by the term “official”. The OED defines “official” as “Having the approval or authorization of an authority or public body“ so, from what I can see, it ‘aint really “official”.

The organisation behind it is the Official Charts Agency and, going by their Wikipaedia entry, they seem to be some sort of mutual back scratching agency so people would be best advised to view any chart they issue with the help of a large dose of sodium chloride.
