3 stars I like this release. It's recordings of the original Yes lineup, playing live in BBC Studios from their seminal years of 1969-1970. It is also released on a one disc version, Something's Coming. The difference between the two, is that Beyond & Before has two discs, and alot of repeat songs.

The performances are good, full of energy. This set shows Peter Banks' skill as a guitarist, often underrated. Tony Kaye really adds a key element in the early sound, the psych hammond sound. It's brilliant here. The choice of songs is also top notch.

Essential for fans of the first two albums, or a cheap introduction to exploring the early sound of YES.
