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 has a Bayesian average rating of 74.2/100, a mean average of 74.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

This album from two prominent members of the Who and The Small Faces, is really a little gem.

For Ronnie Lane the album came at a point in his career when his Slim Chance project more or less econimically lay in ruins; and worse his multiple sclerosis had just been diagnosed.

For Pete Townshend this project came between the albums "The Who By Numbers" and "Who Are You", which tragically turned out to be the last to feature drummer Keith Moon.

"Rough Mix" is brilliantly produced by Glyn Johns, and the songwriting is more or less equally divided between Lane and Townshend. For Lane this could very well be his most consistent post Small Faces album release, and his songs are great. Especially "Nowhere to Run", "Annie" and "April Fool" stand out. His songs have great relaxed folkish feel, and he has pleasant voice, not unlike George Harrison.

Townshend's songs are great too. I particularly like "Keep Me Turning", which is both complex and catchy.

Lane and Townshend are supported by eaqually prominent friends such as Eric Clapton, Charlie Watts, John Bundrick, Ian Stewart, John Entwistle, Graham Lyle and Benny Gallagher, to mention some of the most significant.

The album received good reviews, but it was not promoted very much and consequently did not sell very well.

Should appeal to fans of both the Who and the Small Faces.
