Editorial Reviews

Triumph's first album was recorded and released only in Canada in 1976. The featured songs, "24 Hours a Day" and "The Blinding Light Show", received considerable airplay across Canada and in San Antonio on Kiss-FM. The US airplay paved the way to a sold out concert at San Antonio's Municpal Auditorium. That concert led to a US deal with RCA and the initial Triumph tour in the US. The CD has been re-mastered using the latest technology and it sounds incredible.

This took me 25 years to obtain on a CD, but now I've got it and I don't have to worry about wearing my album out! I've read mixed reviews on this album and must say I disagree with those that don't like it, but everyone's entitled to their opinion, even when they're wrong! Not only is this a great first album, it is one of their 3 best, the others being Rock & Roll Machine and Just A Game. I must admit my opinion is jaded, because I view Triumph as one of the best rock bands ever! This should tell you I don't base my opinion on sales or airplay. Although where I'm from Triumph is and has always been on the air.
This album showcases it all; Rik Emmett's great guitar work and vocals, Gil Moore's primal pounding and vocals, and Mike Levine's production and bass work. There is a variety of music and styles here, which should serve to showcase the talent of this band, which is also the reason I assume some don't like it. To each there own, though! I would have to encourage you to buy this if you've liked any of the songs that did receive airplay by them over the years. If you own other Triumph, this and "Rock & Roll Machine" should be essential parts of your collection. Mine wasn't complete until I finally found them on CD. Now I can breath a sigh of relief.
Do your ears and stereo a favor and try out "In the Begining", whose original title was just plain Triumph when it came out on Attic records back in the day. You can always get the RCA copy of Rock & Roll Machine, which is a compilation of the first 2 Attic releases, but you'd be cheating yourself out of some great music.

Originally released in Canada in the mid 1970's, Triumph's "In The Beginning" CD traces the band's earliest work. Those familiar with the band may already be familiar with some of the Triumph songs that showcased as stage pieces during Triumph's heyday in the 70's and early 80's--Blinding Light Show and Rock & Roll Machine. Lyrically, this album, is a great disappointment compared to Triumph's later albums and the band's youth and inexperience is ever-present. If anyone has had the opportunity to listen to the "Lay It on The Line' track from Triumph's "Stages" CD, the chord solo from "Don't Take my Life" will sound strangely familiar, and may enable you to make better sense of Triumph's musical evolution.

I recently bought this album for completion's sake, because I had read good things about it, and because it had been decades since I'd heard it. For many years it had seemed that there wasn't a lot of memorable material on it. On later albums Triumph progressed fairly steadily to their artistic peak at the "Thunder Seven" album, so there was never really a great need to have this "origin issue" in my collection.

Having listened to this very nicely remastered album several times, things haven't changed too much. It's early Triumph and little more, which is fine. The most memorable and distinctive track is "Blinding Light Show/Moonchild," but that song doesn't exactly bowl me over. Still, there are some worthwhile moments here, mostly in the first few tracks. As a starting point for discovering Triumph I'd recommend either (or both!) of the albums "Rock and Roll Machine" and "Just A Game."

This is a must for any Triumph Fan! This cd is actually the combination of two albums that Triumph did. The first one being simply called "Triumph" this was only released in canada and is now available to alot of folks now on disc. The second part was also some songs that were only released on the Canadian release of "Rock and Roll Machine" If you love Rik Emmett's Playing then you will love this raw power record mixed with some of the best acoustic music he ever wrote! Check this Disc Out!

Well as others have said, this release along with Rock & Roll Machine and Just A Game are all must have Triumph cd's. The others are sub par in my opinion with maybe Allied Forces and Thunder Seven being the exceptions.

If you really enjoy good guitar driven rock & roll the first 3 cd's are the ones you want. Sound quality is good and the tunes rock. What more can you ask for?

No bad for a 3 piece outfit hailing from Toronto Canada. They were indeed a great band at one point and time.

Prior to a few weeks ago, I had never even heard of Triumph. They're not a band you hear too often (or at all) on the typical classic rock radio stations. This album combines hard rock with some nice softer ballads. They're style reminds me of Rush and Boston, but they throw in their own sound to give them an extra push. Highly recommended.
