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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.5/100, a mean average of 78.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

This was my introduction to Townes, and have always preferred the live versions to the studio. Which for a a stripped down emotional storyteller artist makes sense.

Townes is my favorite songwriter, and his studio albums are very inconsistent in terms of production, so this is the album I usually turn to. The bare bones guitar/vocals setup is perfect for his songs, and most of his best songs are featured on this set. And there's just a wonderful feeling of intimacy created by the audience noise and the stupid jokes Townes makes between songs. Maybe the best singer-songwriter album ever recorded!

The most intimate live album I've ever heard. It pulls you right into Old Quarter, right there with townes. I love this album. Townes doesn't get the recognition he deserves, but who cares. He's just the amazing Townes Van Zandt.
