MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 267

Welcome to the 267th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the final and presumably most difficult of March. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the four mystery clips - these clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the answer. 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!

Hint:

Answer: Major league congratulations to @dbertsch, who hit an out-of-the-park, grand slam homer in the bottom of the 9th inning, off a tough knuckleball, to win his 7th and final MJM contest. @dbertsch now joins that super elite club of retired MJM winners, as only its 11th member. Welcome to the Pantheon of MJM Emeriti. As he correctly noted, this week's tracks were all covers, and included the Drowned from 7/17/13, Skin It Back from 2/20/88, Rock & Roll from 9/17/00, and the awesome Have Mercy from 10/20/10. This last clip is part of an excellent SOAM > Have Mercy > Piper > SOAM from the Guyutica show. Fans seemed to have forgotten about this show, which really demonstrated that Phish was back in good form. So check it out, if it's been awhile. Congrats again to @dbertsch. Next week, @ucpete will be back, throwing a nice, underhanded, slow-and-over-the-plate softball for the first (and easiest) MJM of April.

I got one of the clips right away... which may be worse than not knowing any!

That's my usual situation.
- Know one right away
- Find the second in a few minutes.
- NEVER find the last one or two.

Always.

PhreePhish Still no one on this huh?

Well I have an excuse:

- my fiance is on summer break (teacher) so i decided to take the same week off as well. We're hitting a number of fairly local breweries we've been meaning to hit for a while with this time. (Yes I have a fiance who loves craft beer as insanely as I do and will drink the heaviest of barrel aged stuff as i do along with anything else in between. It's kind of awesome. Kind of a one week bender for us. Until Round 3 of the bracket starts!)

- We're also looking at weddimg venues between drinking and the bracket.

So that's my excuse. Besides not knowing any of these offhand.

I got 1 and 3 before the hint. I have chased three leads from the hint and I still have nothing. Nothing but a face palm when someone solves this!

Number 1 is annoying me. Gotta be 3.0 and I'm thinking Gin but that hasn't gotten me anywhere yet. It sounds so easy but it I can't find it. How many times do you think I've said that before?

justino I won't win this week, but thanks to clip 2, I did uncover some forgotten gems! I'll take the Pyrric victory.

I'm (usually) the host and *I* hate it when the blog wins! I like it to go to hint, then the night before it's over someone goes nuts and pulls through with an epic victory with a flash of intuition. @DFB put together a great MJM this week, but it's probably my fault for draining so much MJM energy from folks with the tournament.

oh_kee_dono I have that rolling stone cover hanging in my office at home. Sorry I don't have a guess.
, comment by 12_29_97_4eva
12_29_97_4eva I stayed up until 1:30 trying in vain. Got a couple clips without the hint, but like others, the hint helped me little. I'm sure it'll be extremely obvious when we find out the answers.

Gotta save the brainpower for the Mystery Jam Madness Elite 8!

runlikecarini Same, tried for a bit last night. Found zero clips and got my practice round in for the tourney this week :)

andrewrose Someone post some guesses! What's the hint referencing? 2003? Cover of the Rolling Stone (played on 2/14/03?); date of the issue March 6th 2003, same month and day of first 3.0 show?; the Rolling Stones?

I hope I don't get in trouble for saying this...
I am thinking that the cover of the magazine mentions more than one musician with songs performed by phish.
, comment by Dog_Faced_Boy
Dog_Faced_Boy @andrewrose and @justino - I think you guys are overthinking the hint, by a long stretch. It's not meant to be a trick, it's supposed to help you. Time is running short.... What exactly does the photograph show, in one word? That's all you need to know. 2 1/2 hours until sand in the hourglass runs out.

Wow well done sir! I gave up on my search for clip 1 going through drowned so that sucks to see. No chance I was getting the others though.

ucpete That's one hell of a mic drop for Emeritus status by @dbertsch, who also happens to be the top seed headed into the third round of the MJM Tourney. Holy shit!

Me too!!

dbertsch Thanks everyone! Proud to join the Phish nerd hall of fame! My whole life has led to this moment.

What a tough puzzle! I wouldn't have gotten anywhere without the hint, considering that 3/4 jams were not in the jam charts. Like some others have commented, I was also a little distracted by the other possible meanings of the hint (Lou Reed covers, versions of "Rock and Roll", Rolling Stones covers, It's Ice, musical costume songs, 50 Cent covers, etc.). I think that made the puzzle even better. Luckily for me, I guessed right and searched generally for cover songs.

Anyway, thanks to @Dog_Faced_Boy for putting it on this week! Looking forward to seeing what @ucpete has in store for round 3 of the MJM madness!
