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 Bayesian average rating of 80.5/100, a mean average of 79.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

Collection of hugely influential recordings. By the time this was released in 61, the torch had already been passed on to others like Howlin' Wolf, Lightning Hopkins and others, and the recording quality obviously doesn't compare. Really the best of the 1930s.
Growing up, my uncle and father taught me that the blues was pretty much the most essential music genre of all time. And now I finally realize this to be true. There is something so vital about Johnson's music, his lyrics, his nonstop guitar licks. Of course, this music influenced very many great musicians and those musicians have stayed some of the most influential as well. Without the blues, there would be no rock. And without rock, nearly my entire music collection would be gone.
It would be an understatement to call these recordings merely influential on the music I care about.
É o avô de todo rock que veio depois!!
Best tracks: Crossroads Blues, Last Fair Deal Gone Down, Rambling On My Mind, Stones In My Passway, Hellhound On My Trail
Worst track: 23-20 Blues
The most astounding thing about this record is the clear impact and influence it would come to have on music released 30+ years after these tracks were recorded. Truly a revolutionary, Johnson helped to usher in the Blues Rock genre that would essentially dominate the rock scene of the late 60s and early 70s.
I hear here the influence that Robert Johnson has to Led Zeppelin you can hear here pure blues all track are good and I understand why they say he sell his soul to the devil. Great work bad that the sound quality was not so good at that time but what I can hear is a good guitar player and a great singer
Hellhound On My Trail
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.
Only discovered this amazing collection 15 years ago very deep south sounding but blues thru and thru .
There's been more than 20 years that I started listening to R. Johnson. I never get tired of this. It's so deep.
