4 stars The double CD Three Sides Live is an impressive outing by Genesis, or at least the CD version that I have which has the 'fourth' side live rather than studio tracks.

The CD has very high production values and musicianship with Chester (Drums) and Daryl (guitar/bass) doing an excellent job.

Although by this stage Genesis were becoming very popular, this CD has more than enough quality prog for even the most die-hard fan.

There are no weak tracks although occasionally Phil misses the vocal delivery ('It' is sung too fast and he is over the top on 'Misunderstanding').

Most of the material comes from And Then There Were Three, Duke and (thankfully) the best tracks from Abacab supported by a wonderful melody of In The Cage/Cinema Show/Slipperman (from Lamb/Selling England).

The 'fourth' side live also picks up some older material going back as far as Fountain of Samacis from Trespass (5 stars).

Given the high overall standard and the live 'Fourth Side' it is difficult to see how this rates as anything less than 4 stars.

4 Stars but make sure the fourth side is live
