5 stars Seconds Out is probably one of the best progressive rock live albums ever released. Originally released as a 2-LP set, it covered material from the peak period of the group, from Nursery Cryme to Wind & Wuthering. One song, Cinema Show, features Bill Bruford during his very short tenure with the group. With Phil Collins now in the lead, the drumming was skillfully performed by Chester Thompson (of Weather Report and Frank Zappa fame).

Unfortunately, not everything a die-hard fan could want is found here. To satisfy every Genesis fan would have taken a 4-LP set! Missing are Eleventh Earl of Mar, One for the Vine, In the Cage, Colony of Slippermen, among numerous others. What a dilemma? When five of your last six studio releases are masterpieces, what is a group to do?

Thank goodness they had the sense to include the full performance of Supper's Ready. And Phil does an incredible job on this. What a fantastic collection. Like I said, too bad it wasn't a 4-LP set. Nonetheless, a genuine live album masterpiece. Not many fit that bill, but this sure does. This album would also make a nice introduction to Genesis for those of you not familiar with them.
