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!

    Thanks for sharing the Ribot link, Bear! I’ll definitely have to check it out. The expanse of musical ground that Ribot covers in his different projects is astounding. If you haven’t checked out his “jazz punk” project, Ceramic Dog, you should do so.

    Here’s a taste: https://youtu.be/IQLz9jsY4w4

    Pretty sure that’s the “punk fusion” Turkey Pants influence.

    BW, to be clear- stoney i actually think stoney isn’t really a dubs fan.

    But when your chillin in Oakland, u kinda gotta be. Specially on the parade day.

    Focus more on the Gelato and the biscotti. These are not deserts.

  12. vapebraham Says:

    they are deserts – deserts for the mind and body
