Welcome to the 259th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the fifth, last, and hardest MJM of January. 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 correct answer. Each person gets one guess – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. As always, no sharing or trading of answers is allowed. Good luck!
Answer: Congrats to @12_29_97_4eva, who wins his second consecutive MJM (and fifth overall) by correctly identifying the 9/22/99 Ghost, the 11/16/97 Timber, the 12/9/94 Tweezer, and the 11/14/97 Twist – these jams were played in the states that meet at Four Corners. Special thanks to fellow MJM Emeritus, @WayIFeel, for helping out with this week's MJM – the Four Corners theme was his other idea during the MJM Emeritus Challenge last summer. Given the clips and the theme, I am shocked it didn't even make it to the hint! Stay tuned for MJM260 on Monday, where we'll see a precipitous drop in difficulty as we kick off February in style.
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.
