This is where the group’s release history gets complicated. Beginnings was originally put together by Atco as a double LP to encourage new fans who’d missed them to buy the group’s first two albums, and proved so successful that it was kept in print on CD by Polydor when it acquired the group’s catalog. Polydor’s single-CD version of this double LP, however, was substandard in audio quality, digitized from an LP production master, and their individual CDs of The Allman Brothers Band and Idlewild South were far superior. But when Capricorn got the library back in 1997, they remastered Beginnings along with the rest of the library.
