Editorial Reviews

The BBC Radio recordings that make up Something's Coming cover January 1969 through March 1970 and feature the original Yes lineup. These classical-inclined behemoths pushed the boundaries of rock--too far, some said. But Yes actually began life in 1968 as a harmonic covers band with a brave, new progressive jazz-rock direction. This being Yes, "covers" mean vaingloriously dexterous assaults on the likes of Lennon and McCartney's "Every Little Thing" and Leonard Bernstein's "Something's Coming." It's all period-piece stuff, introduced by the narcoleptic voice of John Peel and a very upper-crust Johnny Walker ("They write most of their own songs and this one is very nice indeed"). The previously unreleased "For Everyone" sounds like a forerunner of "All Good People" and actually includes Chris Squire's "Disillusion" segment ("Loneliness is a power"), which later turned up as the third part of "Starship Trooper" on The Yes Album. Sleeve notes from Ian Rowe and former guitarist Peter Banks round off an attractive package. --Kevin Maidment

Format: Audio CD
This is pure pre-nostalgy. This is how it all started.
The genuine, raw and crispy sound of the very early Yes. Very jazz-inspired and probably quite unique for the time.
Before some of the songs, you even hear the original presentations from radio reporters.
So if you're a Yes fan, or even a fan of jazz: get this! It is uniquely nostalgically interesting music!

Although the sound quality between tracks varies, this compilation, compared to the somewhat sanitised productions of the first two studio albums, is closer to how Yes really sounded in 1969-1970. Unrestrained, raw and energetic. Good stuff. Of interest to fans of early Yes only. (You know, the greying & balding ones.)
