The Beginning was released digitally and on CD in 2001 by Swamp Records in the US and Audium Records in Europe. Long out of print, this record was Tony Joe's 29th and the first one where he controlled all elements of the studio. Stripped down and without any bells and whistles, this is Tony Joe recording, himself playing his classic swamp blues sound, and now for the first time on vinyl. Remastered and re-sequenced for RSD 2020 with new art and pressed on clear with black splatter vinyl.

Hidden West Coast gem that appeals to the hippies, the Balearic heads and Yacht Rock fans alike. Dreamy campfire boogies and funky folk numbers that wouldn't be out of place at a daytime disco. Lovingly re-issued by the mighty Be With Records, this is an absolute must-have for any record lover!
'Tell Her She's Lovely' is the standout track on an LP that's bursting with great little groovers and super baroque belters. If you're a fan of masterful AOR, country-rock, or poolside pop, this album ticks all the right boxes. 'High Tide' is a Balearic masterpiece, and the rest of the album is absolutely full of the good stuff.
It's not on Spotify, so get this on lovely vinyl and fill the air with the sounds of the mighty brothers Batteau.
