4 stars I really wish I could have seen the 1981 tour live, "Three Sides Live" finds Genesis playing like they really still enjoy it. Sure, that can sometimes lead to some overexagerated Collins vocals, but that's ok when you get an extended cut of "Abacab", and a great live version of "Me and Sarah Jane". It's true that if you did not like "Duke" or "Abacab" you are much better to stay far away from this live album because it won't change your mind. Myself, I love double live albums and those two albums are my favorites by them, so it doesn't get much better. It's also worth mentioning that the b-sides that are included at the end of the second disc are really good and should have made their ways on to their respective albums. "Evidence of Autumn" should have made it onto "Duke", and "Paperlate" definately should have made it onto "Abacab". Oh well, I'm glad they made it onto this record, b-sides are always interesting, and these don't fail.
