Welcome to the 240th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday. The winner will receive an MP3 download courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the two mystery jam clips, which are connected by a theme. 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!
Answer: Congrats to @dbertsch, who enters a class of now 39 multiple MJM winners with his second win and LivePhish code, both on multiclip MJMs. He must have recognized the picture taken of the HP Hood milk plant in Burlington, VT, just across the street from where the band lived when they wrote a song about Mr. Hood himself. Specials thanks to Anne Rothwell and the kind folks at thehoodplant.com for allowing me to use one of their photos for this week's hint – it's really cool that they acknowledge Phish on their site taboot: check it out! @dbertsch correctly identified the 7/18/03 Harry Hood (from the jam) and the 3/14/92 Harry Hood (from the improvisational intro) – two clips that, in combination with the versions from the past couple years, highlight the storied improvisational history of this fan-favorite tune since 1985. Stay tuned for next week's MJM, the final and most difficult MJM of September (before we reset the difficulty meter to "low" the week after), which will be an experiment with yet another new format.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
