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!

    Indeed. The Khaki-Pak will be there in force, with Bud Lights and shots of Petron.

    The first @LivePhish videos to be featured are July 31, 2013 from Stateline, NV and July 13, 2014 from Randall’s Island, New York, NY. @LivePhish will be rotating a handful of cherry-picked concert videos within the app from time to time, so stay tuned for more.

  15. joe Says:

    just to complete the announcement tagged onto the lp release

    (seriously bummed out that we’ll be stuck in the atlantic on vacation for LUs northeast dates)

  16. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    They’ll never get me to download the livephosh app. NEVER!

  17. dorn76 Says:

    Just think, you could’ve had my Live Posh Plus Custy App password and griped about it for free all these years.

  18. dorn76 Says:

    Or just listened to Reba constantly like @TierBear.

  19. Jerseyjim Says:

    “Alexa! Play Reba on repeat, forever at high volume.”

    “Will do, sir.”

  20. phishm Says:

    I know Facebook sucks. I hardly use it. This is one of the things it’s good for. Ghost Light actually jams.


  21. BingosBrother Says:

    This is a great interview. https://aquariumdrunkard.com/2018/04/12/dean-ween-the-aquarium-drunkard-interview/#more-56463

    August 93. That’s a time travel month.

  22. phishm Says:

    Fishman with the Mallet Brothers. Whoever they are.


  23. Selector J Says:

    Big ups, @ bingo, for that Deaner interview.

    I don’t listen to music that way. I won’t want to go to iTunes and hear Natty Dread by Bob Marley on a set of earbuds. There’s no way, it’s not going to happen.

    Who feels it, knows it, Mickey-brah.

  24. HadToHaveThat Says:

    There’s something about ripping apart a tighty wrapped hotel bed that reminds me of opening up my heart to a Phish jam…

    Maybe it’s because I’m about to pitch my love and pride of design in terms of Wealth that still isn’t entirely tangible to me…. I’ve always felt that the masses deserve the same level of quality, design and value that any other consumer deserves. But I grapple deeply with the mass market consumerism that seems so necessary, and so desperate for my emotion. Especially when it comes to socks. I feel so lost sometimes. So torn, like these beautiful white crisp sheets, begging to express themselves but aiming to please, yet enjoying the sleek Lear jet that I rode in on…..

    Just trying to blaze on and stay curvy.
    Hoping it’s always ok to come here with these thoughts. I don’t have anywhere else to go.
