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 79.4/100, a mean average of 78.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

Blues music that influenced a TON of musicians that came after him.
A clear influence on so many artists that I personally prize.
I find the only compilations to be allowed on top charts are records made from collections of songs recorded during the singles era like this one. Howlin' Wolf is a harmonica playing legend of the blues and these low quality recordings only add to this album's charm. My favorite blues record from the 50s hands down. Not as dancy as Chuck Berry and Little Richard... and he plays harmonica.
The best album of 1959 and also the best album of the 50's. An absolute classic amongst many classics to choose from in the 50's.
Great blues album!
Tom Waits? Great vocals and carnal jivin'
In my opinion the baddest, dirtiest blues album there is.
Great collection. So many classic blues songs.
Its hard to imagine an album better exemplifying its genre than this album. If you're looking for blues, this is as good as it gets.
Unbelievably strong vocals. This album is over 50 years old and still sounds great, which is hard to accomplish. Timeless.
