Welcome to the 249th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the penultimate MJM of November. The winner will receive an MP3 download courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the FIVE mystery jam clips. Each person gets one guess – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Note: Today we're tweaking the format – today's MJM is a race. At 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET, I will post a SoundCloud link here on the blog. The FIVE clips (each 30 seconds long) are extremely well-known jams from Phish's vast live canon. Hit refresh when the time comes, and we'll see who can name them all first. You ready?

Answer: Congrats to @justino who swooped in just in the nick of time to correct the 5th clip from @illbuyyouaewe's nearly correct scorecard, winning his third MJM overall. The five well-known jams were of course the Woostah Hood, the Tahoe Tweezer, the Albany YEM, the SPAC Piper, and the Hampton Bag (on its anniversary taboot).

Attention: I know every week I say something like "stay tuned for next week's MJM," but this week I mean it more than ever. Next week we hit MJM #250, and we will be giving away the greatest prize package in MJM history. You'll have most of the week to solve the puzzle. Open up your setlist notebooks, fire up your LivePhish and PhishOD apps, wipe your keyboards clean, get a few dozen browser tabs ready, and lock yourself in the basement – you're going to need all the help you can get to solve MJM250. But I guarantee you it'll be worth your time given the 10-part gift we've put together for next week! MJM250 drops at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET sharp here at

Lee_Fordham I love this concept, but other than Hood I don't know any of these. EXTREMELY well known? I think not.

ucpete @Lee_Fordham: How can you make that call without knowing the answer? Are you saying there are fewer than five extremely well-known jams?

Bob_Loblaw Good job here folks!

This was a great idea Pete! The SPAC Piper totally threw me off though...I was thinking it was a 94' jam for some reason.

Lee_Fordham Pete, no hard feelings, I was kinda just poking fun at my own poor showing here.

ucpete All good – these were jams that are so well-known they had never even been selected as MJM clips before, hence the multiclip speed format.

runlikecarini @Justino, nice win! Right before I got home from work too ;)

illbuyyouaewe Congrats @Justino. I listened to 11/21 AC/DC Bag on the way to work today, but didn't get to that part of the jam. When I got in the car on the way home, and they got to that part of the song, I turned if off out of heartbreak. Dammit, I knew that one too. So close...

justino Thanks @illbuyyouaewe. I wore out my 3rd generation tapes of that Hampton run long before the official release.
