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!

  5. vapebraham Says:

    what!? OG garaj lineup for first time in nearly a decade. tapes aren’t superb but with a little preamp and level boost, it good. levy, kai, fareed, hertz – are u kidding me. they sound great.

  6. vapebraham Says:

    this recording is nice:


    meatless patty sounding beefy

  7. vapebraham Says:

    this recording from 5.11 better than 5.12.


  8. vapebraham Says:

    5.12 has more fareed and hertz than 5.11 which has the better low end.

  9. Jerome Garcia Says:

    It truly is a travesty to mankind vapeski. Quite frankly I’m ashamed of myself. & Fareed is Consider IT Jeff pulled out of Garaj MahNed that incl’d parking the Consider IT camper & bunking in parking lot of the Caribou Room. Whole thing fell apart from there. Hey Rando threw out a line for Thurs or Fri @ Be On Key but no bites.
