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 23% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 73.8/100, a mean average of 73.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

I believe that this album is from 1960. Not that it matters much.

Favorite Track: Leave My Wife Alone

I read somewhere a backing band was hired to work with him and it didn't quite work out "because he worked on his own timing". His own demon ran the show... outside of the bounds of "musical" rules, he let the music flow through him. Timeless.

Having said that I personally didn't like this album as much, as much as I give it the respect it deserves.

Hooker is up there with Muddy Waters as the most legit of the big blues men in terms of attitude and grit. This album confirms this.
