Beyond Recall is the twenty-third album by German electronic music pioneer Klaus Schulze, released in June 1991 by Virgin Records’ subsidiary label Venture Records.

The album marked the beginning of Schulze’s “sample” period, in which his albums mostly made use of pre-recorded sounds, amongst which included animal growls, screeching birds and female voices. Sampling was phased out with his 1995 album In Blue.
