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!

    “Bingos, UIC Ghost #neverforget”

    UIC Tweezer was worse. Ghost left me in shock. Tweezer was the first time I’ve genuinely been angry at a show. So yeah, Thanks for the reminder. Can’t get worse than those.

    it was sort of cringeworthy when Trey dropped out for like three or four bars but he just smiled and gestured to Page

    kind of got back on track later but not so much

    This kind of stuff doesn’t really bother me its more that I knew Suzy was coming and I just hate Suzy lol almost as much as I hate Possum

    oh crap now I jinxed myself

    Last night’s Tweezer though. Love the drop down and build up. Tre Magnifique.

    Really would love to catch a TMWSIY. Very underrated tune imo. Especially with that funky ass Avenu Malkenu sandwiched in there. Really gets me going.
