Live Phish Vol. 3 was recorded live at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in Darien Center, New York, on September 14, 2000. The show was part of the band's final tour before taking an indefinite extended hiatus three weeks later.

The show is known for three improvisational excursions that made it popular among fans. The first is an extended funk jam out of "Suzy Greenberg" that closes the first set with an extended jam the likes of which have not been heard since The Giant Country Horns rocked the tune on Halloween 1995. The band also performed a half-hour version of The Who's "Drowned" in response to the downpour that ensued during the set break - that being in the essence of '98 Phish interpreting Brian Eno's ambient style. Finally, the band created an instrumental composition on the spot towards the end of a performance of Talking Heads' "Crosseyed and Painless," sung by drummer Jon Fishman. This is the shortest volume in the Live Phish Series running just over two hours and twenty minutes.

The release reached a peak position of #118 on the Billboard 200 chart.
