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!

    Wasn’t it when JRAD were supposed to play Red Rocks and were rescheduled telas?

  2. realoutcasty Says:

    I’m not sure about that Frankie. Doesn’t sound right to me time wise, but I have a bad memory.

    But JRAD shows in CO …. mmmm hmmm. So good.

    Frankie, all I know is that show blew my mind! Really one of the better shows I’ve seen. Medeski and Martin with JRAD doing Dark Star? Man, it was so good.

    Umbrellas, I just now finally caught up to the Sandman Overture from a few years back. Really excellent, with art by one of my all time favs. Need to get on the new thing. Also need to decide whether to get into the new Lucifer. I hear it’s good but I loved the original and don’t want to fuck with it.

    Reading a recent series called Black Science right now. Multiverse dimension traveling action. So far pretty good, we’ll see

    Congrats on the job!

    Thanks, sure, I usually just buy trades but I’m not sure if that will apply in this situation?

  9. garretcorncob Says:

    Yeah, I’m not sure how that’ll go down, with the multiple titles branching off and all.

    Well, you know how to find me. Can bring it in whenever if you want.

  10. MrCompletely Says:
