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!

    ^ahh Jerome, the song Brain.

    The guitar solo part over the upbeat groove 2/3rds of the way through.. gets extended for awhile and ends up jamming and going places before hitting the halftime stuff.

    any mix tape with some Hurdy Gurdy Man Donovan on it is a-okay in my book. so many late night spunion activities and shanagians with Donovan- especially the album Hurdy Gurdy Man- grooving out of the Jerry Box.

  12. HeadyBrosevelt Says:

    yo, Vape- how about them ‘Ers?! 16 straight and the 3 seed. Should be a fun series against the Heat. First time I am actually stoked for the playoffs since ’03 or something like that. I don’t have to adopt a team this year.

  13. HeadyBrosevelt Says:

    here you go, Vape:

    clap your hands, everybody, for Philadelphia Seventy Sixers…


  14. Jerome Garcia Says:

    dusty Fingers?!?! I didn’t know salty d made YT playlists. Radical.

  15. HeadyBrosevelt Says:

    LU- your set will be over by 8:45? i may just cannonball run to and from Leadville due to the fact that i need work Monday and I have no desire to see Chris Robinson suck from the dry teat of the Black Crowes. wheels are spinning…

    So, as the merch table was getting crushed I recall looking into the eyes of the poor chica working that swag. Right as the moment her eyes changed from fear to anger it reminded me of this one night crashing a party in SF. Reminded me of the Swedish party planner screaming not the lilies as my friends jumped into the pool with tons of lit candles floating on lilies.

    I might be salty, but at least empathetic. You got to pick up ever stitch…

  17. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Heady you’ll be down here that Sat 5/5 for Phil & The Terrible Family Band w/ LoS @ RR. Why not just stick around for OF&B’s opening set on Sun 5/6 then skedaddle?

    Silly Brosevelt Tricks are for kids!

    10 – 9 -8-76ers! My boy and I have been lovin this team and the heart with which they play. Ben Simmons is the MAN – big, natural leader, and passing genius! Fultz back in the fold is a big plus – rested and ready. The international role players – Dario, Belli, Ersan, TJ – provide a spark. Richaun Holmes is underrated, can jump out of the gym and run the floor like a gazelle. Redick having one of the best seasons of his career – lethal shooter. Embiid loves the limelight and should step up in the playoffs. This team is fun and should win 2 rounds and give Toronto a run in the conference finals. Miami scares me a little, but the Bucks or Celts should fold like a cheap lawn chair.

    been enjoying the 12-2, 12-3, and 12-4-83 JGB shows up on bt.etree. Jerry’s voice is less than ideal, but there’s soul. big Melv and Kemper in fine form.

    can’t get enough jerry.
