The title referred to the 13 numbers that could be found on the LPs, but was also a nod to the football toto , in which the results of 13 matches had to be predicted. The series was released by Phonogram on its Philips label. Almost all songs (especially on the first parts) came from the Phonogram stable. Sometimes songs were put on the records that had not (yet) been hits, but were used as promotion for a Phonogram artist. The covers immediately stood out because of an image of a usually scantily clad woman surrounded by the brightly colored names of the titles and performers. Well-known models were Kiki van Oostindiën (later known as the singer of Patrick, Mon Chérieas half of the duo Kiki & Pearly) and Ellen Soeters . As was the custom at the time, the series was also released on cassette , and also on 8 track cassette .

The series was discontinued in the early 1980s after record sales plummeted. This was partly due to the emergence of labels such as K-Tel and Arcade Records that specialized in compilation albums. After 1984, collectors were still sporadically released under the title Alle 13 Goed!

The success of Alle 13 Goed! resulted in a number of competing series from other record companies, such as CNR ‘s De Daverende Dertien (including the extremely successful carnival variants De Daverende Dertien Carnaval good for a total of 27 album hits) and Alle 14 Favoriet van Negram (14 volumes).
