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!

    Everyday I’m not wake’n up right now (in the dark) and drivin across the Bay bridge is an absolute miracle. ♡♡♡♡

    And that’s never again. Still feels crazy good. My body still thinks it’s on after last year. Eventually will teach it not to wake now.

    Current strategy, puff / get back in bed. Wake’n after the sun comes up please/ much better.

    Baker keeps taking about a lady friend, calling me Miranda and heading to lunch with him today. God I hope he doesn’t think I’m a woman. I’ll give a handy but that’s it!

    The Baker is The Baker IRL. Assuming my lunch will consist of doses, language I don’t understand and lots of running after him for his saftey. HideYourKids#
