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!

    So my boy saw them when he was 11 and had a great time. Saw them when he was 13 and we had a blast. He’s now 15 and about to see his first multi night run. I’m so stoked. We all knew what we were like at 15. He’s so not like I was thank God. Such a good kid. I’m hoping he gets one of them shows.

  14. Lumpyhead Says:

    Nice @ C

  15. little umbrellas Says:

    Good shit C! Score.

  16. phlorida phan Says:

    It’s gonna be great, phishm!

  17. Stoney Case Says:

    I have the distinction of seeing the only lousy Phish show in Albany’s history, fall 98.

  18. dorn76 Says:

    I was there, @Rob.

    Yes Virginia, they did play bad shows in ’98. Imagine if 2018 Phish Twitter had been at that show.


  19. Light Glaze Says:

    I will listen to that show now. Full 6 page review with detailed analysis to follow.

  20. dorn76 Says:

    It’s probably fine.

    How could it be as bad Soul Planet?

  21. dorn76 Says:


  22. dorn76 Says:

    This show isn’t all that terrible really, is it?

    Bizzaro setlist with a bunch of garbage, but there’s a Bowie, 2001, Drowned, Piper, YEM… and it’s 98 so pretty hard to quibble with their chops.

  23. Stoney Case Says:

    Out of sync. Calibrate

  24. dorn76 Says:

    I put it on and I’m already bored during Punch, as usual.

  25. little umbrellas Says:

    how was the show C?
