Open Door was first released on the fourth side resp. second half of CD 2 on Three Sides Live, along with Paperlate, You Might Recall, Me and Virgil, and Evidence of Autumn. On later editions, Three Sides Live was changed to a disguised Four Sides Live with older live versions of One For The Vine, Fountain of Salmacis, and it/Watcher of the Skies replacing these 5 non-album tracks. Which is why I bought Three Sides Live twice. tongue smiley


Im afraid I have to disagree with you there, Open Door was first released in the UK in May 1980 as the B-Side to the Duchess 7 single.
It was then released to the rest of the world, as you say, on the non-UK issue of Three Sides Live in May 1982.
The other Three Sides Live that you mention, the one with the fourth side live, is how Three Sides Live was originally issued in the UK. Because all the songs on the fourth side of the non-UK issue had already been released as B-sides to 7 singles in the UK, it was decided to put the extra live track on the fourth side purely for the UK market.
Hope that makes sense!

The largely forgotten B-side Vancouver is also very pretty and mystical. smiley

Totally agree.

Vancouver is a beautiful little track with great atmosphere.

I also agree that Open Door is lovely as is Evidence of Autumn, You Might Recall, etc, etc.

Genesis should have released a b-sides (only) CD at some point - not just as part of a box set. It would have been better than a few studio albums I could name wink

As I've mentioned, one of my favorite Genesis "albums" is the 3-CDR collection I've assembled of all their B-sides & other "archive" tracks. I've done similar "odds & ends" collections of other artists, but the Genesis one is the only one that doesn't include a big dose of alternate versions of album tracks.

Would love to hear what others would have as the track listing of their double b-side compilation CD collection.

I see... dang, this 'different editions in different countries' policy drives me nuts tongue It might have been a B-side here too, don't know about that.

Yep, Open Door was the B-Side to Misunderstanding in West Germany as it was then, issued in July 1980 I think it was.

That's fairly complete... wink cheesy

I have to say that I prefer the fade out version of Submarine though. The ending of the original sounds so premature to me. smiley

I think that Genesis had a lot of very good B-side songs. From that era, Inside and out, It's yourself, Vancouver, You might recall, Evidence of Autumn, Open door, Submarine, The day the light went out are all favourites of mine smiley
