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 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

Such a captivating and mysterious glimpse of the progenitor of so much of what rock'n'roll music came to be. These tracks were culled from two recording sessions before his death at the age of 27. We're lucky to have them. The poignancy of the lyrics hint at a man who was wise beyond his time and his age and was able to find beauty from his melancholy. Haunting.

There's been more than 20 years that I started listening to R. Johnson. I never get tired of this. It's so deep.

Historically there is no doubt that this is a very important recording. Fans of blues music in particular owe it to themselves to check this out as the undeniable starting point of recorded blues music.

All the acclaim and legend surrounding this collection is true, and anyone who is interested in American music really should start here. A word of caution to the uninitiated, though: Robert Johnson did not play the electric blues which are the staple of modern American blues and the roots of Rock n Roll. This is acoustic blues music.

Arguably the most important body of work in the history of contemporary music. From an anthropological standpoint, this is the missing link. Virtually every significant rock artist can trace their roots back to here...whether they know it or not.

These are essential rural blues recordings that continues to inspire people all over the world.

Thank you John Hammond for re-discovering this musician and helping influence musicians like Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin,Fleetwood Mac, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. This is raw blues played by an amazing performer.
