Background: Released in October, 1977, Seconds Out was the second live album by Genesis, and the first to feature Phil Collins on vocals.
The album reached #4 on the UK charts and #47 on the U.S. charts.
Seconds Out caught the band straddling both ends of their history, their second concert album and this time out a double LP. Apart from capitalizing on a successful tour, the album’s raison d’etre appears to have been to present the case to critics and longtime fans that post-Peter Gabriel Genesis, with Phil Collins as lead singer, was essentially the same band as Genesis fronted by Peter Gabriel. The original side one songs consisted of repertory from such post-Gabriel albums as Trick of the Tail and Wind & Wuthering, and most of those live versions, including “Squonk,” “The Carpet Crawl” (positively ethereal), and “Afterglow,” are superior to the original studio renditions of the same songs. Indeed, part of the beauty of this album is the sheer flexibility of the band during this period — in addition to superb vocals by Collins throughout, the drumming by Chester Thompson is at least a match for Collins’ best playing.
