MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 335

Welcome to the 335th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the penultimate of July. 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 song and date of the mystery clip. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, a hint will be posted. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Answer: Congrats to @becker_ross on winning this week's MJM, his second win overall and his first win in more than 5 years and almost 200 MJMs – that's quite the bustout! This week's puzzle was admittedly a bit of a cop-out – I didn't have much time between Tahoe and BGCA to throw something fancier together, so I figured a deep cut from The Victor Disc might give folks fits, especially one Mike's Moma-like bassline. I guess not! I remember when I first read about The Victor Disc in the Rolling Stone article that came out in Winter 2003 – I didn't even realize the interview had taken place until Phish followed the Valentine's Day "My Sweet One" opener with "Cover of the Rolling Stone" on 2/14/03 – and I was so excited about the latenight jam session Trey mentioned they recorded before filming Letterman. Alas, I didn't hear it till almost ten years later! There's some excellent jamming on the album – check it out if it's been a while or you've never delved in.

Though @becker_ross is the clear winner this week, I was hoping the correct answer would have the song and date: 12/19/02 "Blue Over Yellow" – thankfully no one else tried to swoop in on the technicality, making my job much easier. A reminder that while the intro to the MJM each week may look an awful lot like copypasta, I drop little nugs, links, and easter eggs into the nooks and crannies of every post; sometimes they can help guide you to the answer, others, it's just a cool jam or download. We'll be back for MJM336 on Monday – be sure to pay attention as the blog is busy these days!

MiguelSanchez Cool. I was stumped on this one. I thought I heard Page making a dip towards the MLB Jam towards the end, but lucky for me, I hadn't had time to go down that rabbit hole. Hot little number. I need to dust off the Victor Disc and give it a whirl. Nice work @becker_ross.
