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!

    LU, put both Dicks friday shows in your chromatograph or whatever and tell us the science

  22. MrCompletely Says:

    hot take of the day:

    Rahsaan Roland Kirk >>> Sun Ra

    I stand behind it

  23. MrCompletely Says:

    of course in reality (or surreality) they are allies not competitors but to me Kirk is headiest of the high priests of the Church of Outness

  24. Stoney Case Says:

    C, it’s tough because even after all these years, most of the heads can’t decipher “great” from “length” and “lasting merit” from “personal experience”

    I don’t even know if Snow ever found his hot cocoa, SMDH!!

    If Twiddle starts dropping 20 minute live jams, this group is done

  25. MrCompletely Says:

    I haven’t spun that Ribot jawn yet. Been bingeing the fuck out of Kirk and a bunch of other back catalog stuff. Big shocker, Shabaka’s radio show is amazing:


    new Juana Molina is coming

    This Shabazz offshoot project has a preliminary rating of Heady, possibly Heady As Fuck
