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!

    I need a jam before morn
    Embarrassingly never listened to Island tour and ren recently told me it was funk themed, so based on recent discussion I should probably dig into some roses and twist I think it was?

    I have to make millions of dollars tomorrow.

  2. HadToHaveThat Says:

    it’s really dumb and lame to talk about green colors on a black board that means so much more than $$$$. Sorry for that. Had to. Apparently.

  3. HadToHaveThat Says:

    I’m pitching an incredible new program to walmart tomorrow, something I’ve been working on for two years, renfining and perfecting. Takes a while to convince a retailer on this magnitude to adopt. it’s a product line that will benefit working women in a way that has never been affordable to the masses. In any other retail store. I’m really passionate about the technology, and engineering my team has put into it. And this twist is seriously turning me around that way right now. Studying up. Feeling good.

  12. dorn76 Says:

    Sock tech is a cool fuckin’ space to be in.

  13. dorn76 Says:

    You certainly weren’t nooby enough to entertain any other possibility, were you, @CanuckCatFancier?

    Lumpy already locked down his balcony, it’s up to you to fill it with models.

  19. dorn76 Says:

    Hooters is a SAINT

  20. realoutcasty Says:

    i’ve done some sock modeling

  21. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    what you did with your socks in high school is NOT modeling, sir

  22. bobby weird Says:

    i’m too old and crusty to enjoy the sock phenomenon, unfortunately. keeping mind open, however.

  23. realoutcasty Says:

    your not too old to know about crusty socks though

  24. Sally Says:

    Hmmm, I would think Ren is a 1st date Island Tour listen kind of guy. Better late than never!

    Wolf-thanks for the update. I might be able to check out 5/2!
