The Way We Walk Volume One: The Shorts is a live album from Genesis, mainly recorded in 1992 on the We Can’t Dance tour and with three tracks from the 1986/87 Invisible Touch tour.
Genesis used to be a top rated progressive rock band but over the release of the live albums from Genesis Live via Seconds Out and Three Sides Live but see the group evolve to a pop rock band.
This live album concentrates on their hit singles. A companion album, Genesis The Way We Walk, Volume Two: The Longs gives more attention to their more progressive songs

This set represents Genesis the hit singles band. Looking back, the hits weren’t as high as i remembered but I think I was reeling from the sell-out.
I turned off Genesis as an album band when Steve Hackett left after Wind & Wuthering. Some of these songs are very catchy but for me it’s not Genesis.

Classic Rock Not Prog Rock
By this stage Genesis have stopped being a progressive rock band and I’m treating this album as a contender for the best classic rock live album.
Records show that Genesis were selling far more albums as a pop rock group than they ever did as a progressive rock group.
