I loved this album dearly. I was so disappointed to find out that when it was remastered that the original 4th side of the US album which were the studio tracks (and the reason for the title of the album) were replaced with the UK version of different live material. My favorite "You Might Recall" was removed and is not available on any other album. Also gone is Paperlate, Me And Virgil, Evidence Of Autumn and Open Door.

The live performances are incredible and bring a new dimension to each song, but I feel the fans lose out when a song is pretty much deleted from a band's catalog.

I hope that one day Genesis will release this classic album in its original intended form.

A lot of people divide Genesis up into two periods, the Gabriel era and the Collins era. And many fans are divided over which version was better. Personally, I prefer the Gabriel era, but the Collins era was really good for awhile there. In fact the albums with Steve Hackett were just as good as the ones that came before in my opinion.

What you have here is a collection of live recordings from the Collins era, spanning from 1976-1982. And they are very good selections. The first CD focuses more on "the hits" so to speak, but it's a good selection of their more progressive and energetic rock songs. Dodo-Lurker, Me and Sara Jane, and Duchess are great songs.

CD two begins with one of the biggest hits in North America at least, Misunderstanding, which doesn't work as well live as the other tracks, but it quickly kicks into a high gear with an awesome rendition of In the Cage from The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. The end of the song morphs into a lightning fast version of The Cinema Show instrumental section with snippets of The Colony of Slippermen and Riding The Scree sprinkled in for good measure. The song eventually becomes Afterglow, a great song that works well after long instrumental passages.

You know you have the remastered version if the next track is One For the Vine, an incredible prog mini-epic off of their Wind and Wuthering album, but the real highlight is Fountain of Salmacis, another Gabriel era song from Nursery Cryme. This was an unexpected surprise, and they do a great job with it, although I wish they included a version with Steve Hackett playing guitar, as I think he handles this song better than Stuermer. Hackett is present, however, on the next track, it.

How was Genesis able to fill huge arenas and concert halls across the world in the 70s without the benefit of a hit single? It's because they were awesome in person and this collection is proof positive. They weren't content to just attempt to reproduce their album cuts, they wanted to improve them and let them grow on their own volition. The fact that most of the songs featured two of the best rock drummers in the world (Phil with Bill or Chester) made them instantly different from the recorded versions. I still consider Seconds Out a fine live record but this one is just as good, if not more dynamic with the remastering job. Turn it on, Abacab, Follow You and Misunderstanding got lots of airplay but in concert the band took them to new heights. Abacab sizzles with the two drummers kicking butt throughout. Dodo is like a whole different song. But the In the Cage mdeley is beyond belief. It transcends even Suppers Ready on Seconds Out. I've been listening to it since it came out on vinyl in 82 and it still sends chills up my spine. And Phil's emotional vocal on Afterflow justifies its repeat from that same album. The inclusion of the songs with Bill Bruford on drums make this a true must-have for any Genesis fan. The songs were their creations even though PG had departed and they were still very proud to perform them for their audience and the raw enthusiasm comes charging right through the speakers on every cut. I know there were studio songs on the original US version but they pale in comparison to these live gems. Get this before it's gone as it may be one of the most overlooked collections in the entire history of the band.

Genesis' 14th album Three Sides Live was released in June of 1982.
The album comprises of songs from the band's 1981 Abacab tour and one from 1980's Duke tour.
On this album, singer/drummer Phil collins, guitarist Mike Rutherford and keyboard player Tony Banks were augmented by guitarist/bass player Daryl Stuermer and the returning Chester Thompson on drums for the live material here. In fact, there were two versions of Three Sides Live released (one for the US, Canada and Germany which the previous review pertains to and the other for the UK, Japan, Europe which is in this review here).
The first disc kicks off with technically seven songs from the 1981 Abacab tour including a spirited "Turn it On Again" (which was played before the Dance on a Volcano/Los Endos medley at the end on the abacab tour itself), an excellent medley of "Dodo/Lurker" (which followed "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" on the 1981 tour's setlist) and an excellent reading of Abacab's title cut (the later live versions trumped this but played with more passion than the classic studio version).
The second side of the album begins with the tour's actual opening tracks "Behind the Lines" and "Duchess" which are performed with more fire than the studio version ("Duchess" was faded as the song segued into "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" during the performances on the Abacab tour). Next is another Abacab track "Me and Sarah Jane" which trumps the studio version. We close disc one with "Follow You Follow Me" which was actually recorded on the 1980 Duke Tour at the Lyceum Ballroom in London (it was not played on the 1981 tour). (The 1981 tracks were from Nassau Coliseum, The Savoy Club and Wembley Arena respectively).
