Live – The Way We Walk, Volume Two: The Longs is the fifth live album by British band Genesis and was released in 1993, having been recorded during their 1992 tour for We Can't Dance . The album's title refers to a lyric in two songs, "I Can't Dance" on the previous volume and "I Know What I Like" on this one.

Contents

While its companion piece, the preceding The Way We Walk, Volume One: The Shorts contained the band's recent pop hits, The Way We Walk, Volume Two: The Longs focused on the longer songs performed during this period. For the 1992 tour, Genesis performed a "new" medley of their old songs—"Dance on a Volcano/The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway/The Musical Box/Firth of Fifth/I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)"—which replaced the "In the Cage" medley. The "Old Medley" appeared on both this album and (in a very slightly different version) on the DVD of the Earls Court concert. The DVD version of "Old Medley" contains a very small snippet of "Misunderstanding" in place of the CD version's brief snippet of "Your Own Special Way".

The Way We Walk, Volume Two: The Longs reached No.1 in the UK where it remained in the charts for 9 weeks, and No.20 in the U.S. It remains the band's last No.1 album.
