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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.2/100, a mean average of 73.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.8.

A companion album rather than a soundtrack, and in that sense it works, but as opposed to the other releases in the bootleg series, this album doesn't have a core theme, and in turn makes it uneven and inconsistent. Still, there are treasures to be found, and since it is for the 'no direction home' documentary, I will accept that songs previously on other albums in this series also appear here. Possibly the least interesting and least essential of the series.

This package is a soundtrack to a documentary. For fans of Mr. Dylan this collection is a must have document containing many rare and unreleased tracks. A great album for the uninitiated who want to know more about one of the greatest artists of a generation.

This album has several functions:
First of all it serves as a nice "soundtrack" to the excellent documentary of the same name.
Second is it serves as a an interesting study of Dylan's career from being an 18 year old kid playing some blues-folk in '59 to his being the most divisive figure in folk and rock come 1965-'66.
Third it is a great little batch of live cuts and alternate takes of his most classic songs in interesting and fresh forms.
And fourth it contains some essential recordings of his Newport folk festival 1965 appearance and his "Royal Albert Hall" concert.

All in all this record flows pretty well. And unlike bootleg series 9, The Witmark Demos, I feel this can be really great to even an uninitiated and new Dylan fan.

Highlights include the beautiful rendition of Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land", that legendary moment when Dylan "went electric" at Newport with a downright filthy performance of "Maggie's Farm", and the much more morose and dramatic live version of "Blowin' In the Wind". The song "I Was Young When I Left Home" gets me everytime. One of my new favorite Dylan songs that one is.

As for hearing Dylan at 18 and 19 with those first few tracks, I adore that! In and of themselves they aren't terribly fantastic, but knowing that is a young man who would later make so much great music is amazing!

Anyway, this is great! Possibly the best document that tracks Dylan in this period of his career. Both the album and movie are highly recommended for anyone trying to get into this great man.

Grade: 89/100
