Beginnings was a 1973 reissue of the Allman Brothers Band's first two albums, The Allman Brothers Band and Idlewild South, made to capitalize on the band's popularity since those records had first come out. Beginnings also included extensive liner notes by writer Jean-Charles Costa that gave many fans their first coherent view of the band's history, as well as useful guidelines for how to tell Duane Allman's guitar parts from Dickey Betts's.
Beginnings was the first album by the english glam/hardrock group Slade (under the name Ambrose Slade). It was released May 9, 1969 but failed to enter the charts.
Beginnings is the debut album by the American-based hard rock/alternative metal music group Memento (now called Nine Times Bodyweight). The album was released on February 23, 2003 via Columbia Records - a division of Sony Music. The singles "Nothing Sacred" and "Savior" both achieved success on the US Mainstream Rock charts.
