Beginnings - Review - Allman Brothers Band

Beginnings review

This is their first two studio albums, The Allman Brothers Band (1969), and Idlewood South (1970), released on one CD, a great value.  Some highlights are the jam oriented "Whipping Post" and "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed," and the song oriented "Dreams," "Revival," and "Midnight Rider." There is a multitude of great lesser known songs most notably “Every Hungry Woman.”

The Allman Brothers Beginnings has great music and an outstanding value.
