  Tuesday, June 3, 2014 - Genesis with Phil Collins

I debated a long time over this one.  I was checking out the 2007 Genesis release Live Over Europe and was about to use a track from that as today's Classic Concert Cut.  But as I looked over my Genesis CD collection, I was taken back in time to middle school.  I believe it was my guidance counselor at New York Mills (or was it the band teacher?) who first recommended early Peter Gabriel/Genesis records to me. I was hooked.  Listening back to the 1973 Genesis Live album is a really strange and wonderful trip through prog rock heaven, if you’re into that stuff.  Even Seconds Out, the first live album featuring Phil Collins at the helm, is an extreme musical masterpiece that requires some serious listening time.  For today’s Classic Concert Cut, we check out the 1982 live album 3 Sides Live which contained 3 sides of live material and 1 side of unreleased studio stuff.  3 sides?  Yeah, I’m talking about vinyl.  Enjoy “Misunderstanding”.
