Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 81.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

A bit overlong to be honest with a few pointless and boring instrumentals(which also appear on the 2CD version of the Fillmore east album and work so much better in that context). A single album would have made a much tighter and more enjoyable listening experience. Still, half of it is brilliant.

I've never been high on albums that mix live music with studio music, but this one did it rather well. The only thing I don't like about the album is Mountain Jam. Were I a DJ on the radio, I'd love it, as I could put it on and go eat lunch, but to listen to all 33 minutes is difficult to say the least. Still a great album.

I understand they wanted to pay tribute to Duane after his untimely death, but the 30 plus minute Mountain Jam is difficult for most to listen through. It probably would have been a better album without that track. The rest of the tracks however are all great so it's still a pretty good album.

I feel like I've been taken away to a different era when I listen to this. Captivating.

This double album was released after Live at Fillmore East had propelled the band to stardom in the USA. It has three components. Firstly studio tracks featuring Duane Allman, secondly tracks recorded following his untimely demise and lastly live tracks from the Filmore East performances. More by accident than design the album works really well with the more laid back style of the studio material complementing the raw power of the best live tracks. Either way it showcases a great band at their very best despite having to deal with a huge tragedy.

The fact that this double album only contains nine tracks is due to some of the tracks being greatly extended jams. This is never more apparent than on the 33 minute version of Mountain Jam which is extended way beyond the listener’s interest and undermines the whole album. The beautiful Betts track Melissa is one of the bands finest ever moments and Little Martha is a great track featuring Duane at his very best. The album reached # 4 on the US chart and is a fitting memorial to Duane Allman

One of the most solid albums I've heard, "Eat a Peach" carries a wide variety of Su=outhern Rock greats that range from short songs to a half hour instrumental. Beautiful.

I listened to this the other day and I've forgot how much I enjoy it. I find I enjoy this a lot more by skipping the 33 minute "Mountain Jam." This is definitely their best, following the Fillmore album.
