Early 3.0 Playlists: 2009-2011

Red Rocks – 7.31.09 (Graham Lucas)

About a month ago, a friend of mine who missed the first three-plus years of 3.0 was saying how Phish wasn’t very musically proficient in these years. I begged to differ. First, I started listing great stuff from each year in a group text, but then I decided to show him instead of tell. With the incredibly useful LivePhish app, I created extended playlists of the most relevant jams from these years. In addition to sharing them with some friends, I figured I’d share them with anyone and everyone who’d want to listen as a reminder of how exciting these years actually were. I find that 2009, 2010 and 2011 get a bad rap. Though the band was less consistent during this early comeback era, they did produce quite a bit of good music.

These playlists got quite long, so I most often included only the songs that had the jams and not the come down songs, so some tracks have abrupt endings, but in the end this doesn’t prove too obtrusive. If you have the LivePhish app, these links will open the playlists in your app. Enjoy!

    Podcast was great. Especially the parts where he talks about the Bakers Dozen, Page, and Mike.
    Or anything related more about their live show. Super great to hear that stuff.

    Hey now, BB! I heard Squabetty was the mother fucking TRUTH! Well done, Heads. Way to keep it weird and wild. You are all an inspiration. I saw Tela’s at Ween and he had glowing reviews and scratched beneath the surface with some stories.

    I’m finally back to normal (shredded local hills on a very early MTB ride this morning) and back from Space- two days of Ween followed by a three day hippy wedding in the northern mountains. I officiated the wedding. Bride and groom were stoked, as well as their families, with the officiating. I used Mountains in the Mist as my inspiration. Some quotes from the song interlaced with my own words. It was lovely and not too hippy, but just hippy enough. Although I did end it with, “by the power vested in me by these mountains, these trees, this sky, and the groovy spirit of Jerry Garcia I pronounce you husband and wife…” That’s pretty hippy, ha!

    Sumo are you really buying them just for the music?

    I’ll stop now because I’m gonna hit you up for the flacs in September 😉

  25. Kaveh Says:

    Just ordered the new GD box

    ^ Ordered mine earlier this AM. It’s a no brainer. Such great music; going to be a great release. Like everything that has come out of the dead world for music releases, except the RFK 89 box set release, that was one I wasn’t a fan of.
