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!

    Good times at French Quarter Festival. Best line of the weekend from my Dad: “Turns out I really like brass band music”

    He was not as impressed with Ellis’s set of Monk tunes. I thought it was great though. Weather was a downer on Saturday. Just dumped and dumped and dumped. Forest Gump rain that came from below…

    Meschiya Lake was very impressive. Girl has got crazy good pipes. Shame she is leaving the city for Europe. Kids had fun. Caught the 17 year old dancing to Treme Brass. She came in very aloof, and left loving NOLA. She liked Bourbon Street a bit too much for this Dad’s taste though.

    Latitude 29 makes a fabulous cocktail. It has to be on your agenda if you go.

    Crowds were pretty large for Friday and Sunday. At times, uncomfortably so, for a Dad trying to keep an eye on his daughters.

    We’ll be back! Shout out to Bearito, great to see you as always!
