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!

    Page hates the tinkly winkly synth sounds.

    Synchro System by King Sunny Ade is one of the records my dad brought to the table. So dank.

    Need to peep this Marc Ribot.

    I like how trey acknowledged page’s tones are actually better then ever now.

  17. bobby weird Says:

    Stoney’s a Dubs fan? of course he is.

  18. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    Wait so you guys actually listen to CDs? I assumed you just ripped the CDs once you got them and then never used them again since it’s not the 90s anymore

  19. realoutcasty Says:

    That Ribot album was my intro to his music. Got that around same time I picked up Scofield – Bump. Laswell had his Imaginary Cuba album come
    Out in same period of time. Was obsessed with those three.

    Anyway. That Ribot LP is amazing. Trey plays that track Aqui Como Alla on a rare occasion

  20. Random Poster...Nutbag Says:

    Two “random” mentions T3. I’m contractually obligated to pop in.

  21. wilbard Says:

    I don’t even own a CD player anymore

  22. BingosBrother Says:

    I own more cd players than digital players. I have no interest in that shit. Terrible way to interact with music imo.

  23. jdub Says:

    My truck only has a cd player. I love that format.

    Very tangible.

  24. jdub Says:

    Moist Green Organic keyboards are where it’s at. We all new Page killed the Dozen and it is great to hear Trey confirm. That was a really sweet interview of Trey by Tom Marshall and his sidekick. Makes me excited about summer tour and beyond.
