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!

    Can you text me to the Paradise? ;0>

    Streaming the new Bombino now. Thanks for the heads up!

    Yeah, I love how Jerry was a straight up taper and a fan before he became “Jerry”. The story about him rushing back to the motel somewhere in the Midwest so he could dub a special local bluegrass show has stayed with me. Had no idea until recently about what an avid taper he was. Had a pretty expensive setup even when he was a broke kid touring the bluegrass circuit for months at a time. Interesting.

  5. BingosBrother Says:

    Oh yeah, forgot to say he dubbed it off the tee vee. With a microphone. Pretty unique scene. Started out just like you and me.

  6. BingosBrother Says:

    This is dope. I consider myself very well read on the GD and I never heard about Jerry almost dying in 1961.

    Hey BB – been a while

    Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mama Bears in everyone’s lives, and to those here on the BB.

    Love to all ye mothers and children of mothers♡

    Sometimes life slams ya. Came home from tour to find out my new housemate had been goin manic and was living in my room rearranging all my stuff. The big beautiful tree got badly damaged.

    And in even much larger news, found out there’s no lady umb or little pup for me anymore. She’s staying in NM. Significant Other status is toasted.

    Almost didn’t want to share this here. Board times are pretty slow these days. But I’ve shared everything else with you lovely phreaks, so wanted to let ya know.

    This place is truly special. Between politics/FB talk.. and assessing jam stuff with Miner.. well I can’t tell yet if those were great or damaging conversations for the board here.

    Long live the board and all ya all. I imagine Phish tour will stoke the fire as it always has.

    Much love Pholks.

  11. Jerseyjim Says:

    Sorry to hear lu. Hang in there.

  12. phlorida phan Says:

    Vibes homie!

  13. BingosBrother Says:

    You’re the straw that stirs the drink LU.

  14. Sally Says:

    The world moves on a woman’s hips! Much to love to the BB and Happy Mother’s Day!

    Hugs LU, that sucks

    Re-entry from Jazz Fest is complete, real estate sales are in full swing, and the studio apartment that we’ve been building since last summer is nearly complete. Can’t wait to get the show on the road 🙂

    Miners Hoyas are looking good against John Hopkins in the NCAA lacrosse tourney.

  16. bobby weird Says:

    Pharma bros might want to peruse S Pelley’s 60 Mins piece on Boston Scientific

  17. wobs Says:

    Vibes, LU – that’s rough to come home to, especially after such an amazing few weeks. But you got this, and we got you.

  18. HeadyBrosevelt Says:

    Sorry to hear, LU. Head up kid. If you get a notion you’ll climb a tree
    or chop it down and nobody can stop ya.

  19. phlorida phan Says:

    Whelp, freakin Bolts got that ass kicked again last night. This is not the same team from the first 2 series. Dudes making shitty passes and turning the puck over like it’s their job. At this rate, they’ll be knocked out of the playoffs before Bisco in Asheville this weekend.

  20. bobby weird Says:

    looks like its the Caps year, Phlo. they finally got past the albatross that was the Pens. but Winnipeg. those guys are monster sized.

  21. HeadyBrosevelt Says:

    Start Making Sense was a really cool show. 2 Sets of fire Talking Heads. Dance Party USA in the Ogden. Spun the whole Bachelor Party on this new L I have. Test run for me. A plus. Everyone had a lovely experience. I picked up a tank, earlier in the day, for late night to surprise my buddy. We were up until 7, spinning records, giggling. My buddy was so stoked on his surprise bachelor party. I’m officiating the wedding and it was cool to meet some of his friends who I didn’t know, but who are in the wedding. Very sweet, cool people. All Phish kids. I was able to nerd out with them.

  22. HeadyBrosevelt Says:

    I cut up a bunch of micros, and this one dude was referring to them as “social slivers”. Ha! Best name for micros.

  23. BingosBrother Says:

    A+ term Heady

    So, say I had an empty oxygen tank. Could I fill it with the goods?

  24. HeadyBrosevelt Says:

    Maybe, but prolly not. You usually don’t “get them filled”. You exchange empty for full.

    My guy has his tanks with his stickers and his color. You used to be able to tank random steel to him, but not anymore.

    Never know until you try, though.

  25. BingosBrother Says:

    Got it. Thsnks.
