by Record Facts

Genesis are an English rock band formed at Charterhouse School, Godalming, Surrey in 1967. The most commercially successful and longest-lasting line-up includes keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford and drummer/singer Phil Collins. Other important members were the original lead singer Peter Gabriel and guitarist Steve Hackett. The band underwent many changes in musical style over its career, from folk music to progressive rock in the 1970s, before moving towards pop at the end of the decade.

Catalog#  6650008

Three Sides Live is the third live album by the English rock band Genesis, released as a double album in June 1982 on Charisma Records in the United Kingdom and Atlantic Records in the United States. The album is compiled of recordings from their 1980 and 1981 tours in promotion of Duke (1980) and Abacab (1981), with side four of the UK edition containing live tracks from their 1976, 1978 and 1980 tours, and studio tracks from the Duke sessions and their 3×3 (1982) EP on the North American edition.

The resulting album offered lean, crisp, and generally bracing accounts of the group’s then-current sound — a mix of pop/rock highlighted by some prodigious musicianship — and a four-minute glimpse of its progressive rock past in the guise of the “In the Cage Medley,” containing “Cinema Show” from Selling England by the Pound. Phil Collins is in good voice throughout and the playing is often impressive, achieving some excitement and intimacy despite the arena-sized audiences to which the group was now playing.
