MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 143

Welcome to the 143rd edition of Phish.net's Mystery Jam Monday! As always, the first contestant to correctly identify this week's song and date will win an MP3 download courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. The rules: one guess per person per day, with the second “day” starting after I post the hint. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, and the answer will be posted on Wednesday. Enjoy!

Wednesday Answer: For a moment, I'd deluded myself into thinking that this week's choice had fooled the contestants just long enough to at least earn a hint-aided loss. With a scant eight hours left, however, they proved once again how ridiculously great and knowledgeable they truly are. (Or how miserably awful the Blog's been at choosing clips.)

Fall 1998 was certainly not the most consistent tour Phish has ever played, but it did provide numerous underrated gems -- MJM #143's 11/4/98 Piper being one example. Three-time winner @PhreePhish wins this week's MP3 download. Mazel Tov!

Mystery Jam Monday 122 arrives in five.

ucpete This stirs up a few different thoughts for me. It's a little Bethel Waves soundcheck-like, it's a little Ambient Jam '98-like, and it's a little Japan 2000-like. In summary, I have no fucking idea.
, comment by andrewrose
andrewrose The guitar tone at the beginning has a pretty late 97 feel, but the lilt of the jam and the sound of the recording has a more relaxed, outdoor summer feel, ala 98 Ambient jam? I'm leaning towards a big summer 98 show..

Poizon45 I haven't a clue, it sounds like a 2nd set opener at least... i'm looking forward to seeing the result so i can search it out!
, comment by WayIFeel
WayIFeel I'm feel like I've heard this before which means I'm thinking I was at the show and it sounds like one of the Mike's I've heard. That being said, I'm going with

7.31.97 Mike's Song

Nice. Yeah had to be '98.. was moving to fall stuff next. I like Nov 98 a lot, gets way overlooked.

forbin1 Nice...totally thought it was a Mike's..
, comment by MiguelSanchez
MiguelSanchez i've never heard this one. some friends of mine were there and kind of panned so i never gave it a whirl. maybe it's time...
, comment by jmponder
jmponder Damn, got here too late. The 11/4/98 Piper is one of my favorites, criminally underrated
, comment by ckess22
ckess22 November 98 does get overlooked. 11/11 and 11/27 are smoking shows.
, comment by ucpete
ucpete In my recent tour-by-tour listening adventures I made it to the end of Summer '98 (from beginning of Fall '97) and rather than continuing on I circled back to Summer '97. My 11/98 exposure is limited to the greatest hits... I'll get there soon though. Nice work @PhreePhish -- how many wins is that for you? 4? 5? I'm stuck on 2...
, comment by PhreePhish
PhreePhish That's 3 in the last 6 or 7 weeks.

I've really never played this game before recently now, but now I have Mondays off of work to and can dig in. Before then it was usually guessed before I got home.

So if you combine my jam knowledge, having Mondays off now and phishtracks.com- lets just say I should be an ongoing threat for a while :)
(or until work changes my day off again)

Jackaroe People are loving on November 98 with good reason, check out 11/8/98.

Monday's off. That's a sweet gig. I was at work and thought it might be that UIC Bag from that tour but I didn't think it was worth the guess. My friend was born on 11/4, actually the day Reagan was elected into office, and he told me that Trey's daughter was born on 11/4 so they don't play on that date anymore.

I checked that Bag along with the 11/8/98 DWD (I was at the whole '98 UIC run back in the day) along with the jam out of the 10/30/98 NICU. Then I found the 11/4/98 show which I own but haven't listened to in a looong time.

Next week someone needed to switch with me so I am now working next Monday only-- so here's hoping it's a really hard one that lasts more than a day!
