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!

    Although Pop Pop Joe aka Poppy was more of a Monk Trio ’47 – ’56 guy as that’s when he & Mom Mom Henna were catching him in the jazz clubs of NYC as young lovers post WWII. Bless you Poppy for always having jazz on which is engrained in my DNA & for hipping me to Monk way back when.

    ^^that’s a lovely gesture from lovely man. However no can do as I already had flights tickets to N3 & N4 & place to stay w/ The Known Pornographer but alas & alack I had to bail on yet another Phishing trip bc I’m not & haven’t been been doing life very well. But I’m trying to do & be better. Anywho…watch out w0r!d The Baker’s coming to Vegas!!!

    That must have been special catching Monk in NYC after WWII… Your grand father had good ears and I will listen to some Monk this evening in his honor…

    There was a really cool picture I saw pass of Monk playing in a club that looked like it was taken yesterday… perfect light with the smoke… I’ll try to find it…

    here’s some peak Monk, bearman


    live in japan 1963 with the great quartet, short but great set

    features monk wandering around the stage, a great hat, incredible music, the whole 9

  6. MrCompletely Says:

    I like that early era monk too (I like all eras of monk) but unfortunately 1961 is the earliest footage I have ever seen of him. There is a clip labeled 1954 but it is actually a duplicate of that japan jawn

  7. Frankie Says:

    That was the photo in question… I guess the color made me think it could have been taken yesterday…


    Thanks for the Japan set C!
