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 i think the band’ll get like 10 guest list spots at all the ATCF opening gigs. Not sure if the other guys have any Denver peeps.
    Will find out.

    ^so Uncy J def gets a list spot. You can’t serve up grilled cheeses that bomb and not get some love.

    Even when playing Ethio Jazz or Motown tunes.. there’s often only so many time/ feel / riff changes in that music.

    It’s a trip playin prog rock. Next next next next. It’s not too mathy and self indulgent. This music is still very much based in groove and feel and tone. But a lot happens in each song.

    Also i dont know if we even have an hour at these opening slots.. might be 30-50 min. Cray. Just did 3 sets with the Hitmen on sat.
