Biography

The Genesis of the Seventies was a very different group from the Genesis of the Eighties and the Nineties - although not as different as some people would like to think.
Most of those who picked up on Genesis during the Eighties as their succession of hits encircled the globe had only the haziest idea of what had gone before. “In the later years there were people coming to our ... Read more in Amazon's Genesis Store

Customer Reviews

The album comprises of songs from the band's 1981 Abacab tour and one from 1980's Duke tour.
Terrence J. Reardon
It is also beautifully presented in this Japanese version with a miniature vinyl album style sleeve.
David Bellamy
Yet it's an extraordinary compilation of their live work with an impeccable sound and production.

There are two versions of Genesis' 1982 mostly-or-fully live release, "Three Sides Live." The *original US release* of this double-album is, indeed, 3/4 live recordings taken from the band's 1981 tour for "Abacab," with the fourth quarter comprising of five studio leftovers from the "Duke" & "Abacab" sessions (including the Top 40 hit, "Paperlate"). Europe, however, got the five studio tracks released on a separate EP (also called "Paperlate"), with THEIR fourth quarter of "Three Sides Live" filled with more live stuff taken from the "Duke" and "Trick Of The Tail" tours. Got it? Good.If you're a diehard Genesis fan, then both versions of "Three Sides Live" are worth having in your collection. The first 3/4's live that *everybody* gets is an excellent document of the band in 1981, and shows just how powerfully Phil Collins, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, and live co-horts Daryl Stuermer & Chester Thompson can rock in concert, and how commanding a singer & frontman Collins certainly is. GREAT performances are everywhere of Genesis favorites such as "Turn It On Again," "Abacab," "Dodo/Lurker," "Follow You Follow Me," "Misunderstanding," and the Peter Gabriel-era classic "In The Cage." If you buy the original US version, then the five studio songs comprising the last quarter of the album will greatly impress: "Paperlate," "You Might Recall," "Me & Virgil," "Evidence Of Autumn" & "Open Door" are all fantastic Genesis songs.Read more ›

Ok, I have not heard all Genesis' concerts, but I have heard a great many, and none of them surpass the November 29 1981 Nassau concert, which delivers the majority of the material for this live release. Granted, the songs might not be as good as those included on the 1977 'Seconds Out' release, but then again, they might be - more justice might be done by saying that these are just a different kind of songs. Because songs like 'Behind The Lines', 'Duchess', 'Abacab', 'Dodo/Lurker' and 'Me And Sarah Jane' are masterpieces in their own right, as they are delivered here.
The change that has come to songs like 'Abacab', 'Me And Sarah Jane', and 'Dodo', as compaired to the studio versions, is none less than incredible. Frankly, the Abacab album was a rather miserable experience in my oppinion, with the title track containing an absolutely pointless and longwinded instrumental outtro and the nearly off-tune keyboards of Dodo/Lurker [not to mention that this album spawned everybody's most hated Genesis song, 'Who Dunnit?'!].
But in this live recording, thesse songs are completely transformed. The band plays with all the energy they lacked on the studio recordings, 'Abacab' roaring into it's completion (which was faded out on the album version!), delivering master double-guitar work as well as keaybord play and drumming. Suddenly the keabord parts of 'Dodo' swings like nothing else. 'Me And Sarah Jane' suddenly grooves along with reagae feel and a charm and at the same time loneliness the album version was completely devoid of.
Similarly, 'Behind The Lines' is delivered with an energy that leaves you quite breathless once it fades into 'Duchess', which is delivered with an intensity that is impressive.

Somehow, this album always manages to slip under the radar. Other live Genesis recordings make it to the top of the stack, and so we've got 'Seconds Out', the two volumes of 'The Way We Walk' (otherwise known as the last breath of life that Genesis exhaled on the stage) and even the classic 'Genesis Live' from 1972. Yet the oddly named 'Three Sides Live' always falls through the cracks and hardly ever makes it to the top of anyone's "live recordings" list. Yet it's an extraordinary compilation of their live work with an impeccable sound and production. Let me tell you a small story about it, so you'll be left with some treasure hunting to do.

Here's the scoop: two version of this album were released. The review you're reading is for the US version, which had three sides (out of the four in the double vynil album) recorded live. The fourth side was recorded in the studio. As it stands, this version is very solid, and it captures Genesis at its live best (1982), right before they turned into a more commercial band (early eighties) and Phil Collins started sounding more like a TV Show host than a frontman for the band. However, if you somehow manage to get your hands on the UK version (which has all "four sides" recorded live), you will appreciate my advice: it comes loaded with a soup for the soul of the classic Genesis fan. Besides the mindwarping "In The Cage Medley", and the best from the 'Duke' and the 'Abacab' albums, it carries "One For The Vine" parts 1 and 2, and a medley of "Fountain of Salmacis", "It" and "Watcher of the skies". It really doesn't get any better than this... well, maybe... but still you ought to get a copy.
