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!

    Does this thing still work?!

    Been a looong minute, but hope you all are well as another tour comes upon us. Unfortunately, no shows are in the cards for me, but with good reason as we welcomed another girl to complete our family in late May.

    So life chugs along at full speed and blessings abound on multiple fronts. Wish I could rage the Gorge, as friends are doing it right with an RV, but I’m looking forward to spinning this tour during the early morning hours in the coming weeks (like I did while on newborn duty with our other daughter during that epic Summer 2015 tour).

    Rage on.
