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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.2/100, a mean average of 81.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

I recommend this as a great place to start if you want to know what this band is all about. My favs are He’s Gone, China Cat Sunflower, I Know You Rider, Ramble On Rose, Sugar Magnolia, Tennessee Jed & Truckin’.

Sides 1 and 4 are the Dead at their very best. Fantastic. The other sides are only a slight drop-off. Famously, there are a lot of studio overdubs on this; you can hear it in the vocals...not a problem, good choice, using the live tracks as a base and then cleaning it up. Many of these tunes have their definitive versions on this album as a result. Even the album cover was fantastic on the triple LP. Bozo or Bolo?...either way, happy trails.

My favorite Grateful Dead standard official relaese. A tad higher than American Beauty & Workingman's. The best "Sugar Magnolia" Ever! Great renditions of most tracks, well played, nice production - overdubs; A great listening experience always! Regular rotation spot this one always has in my world. MEZ
