Welcome to the 332nd edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first and easiest for this month. 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!
*Reminder: For the first MJM of each month, only folks who have never won an MJM are allowed to answer before the hint. If you have never won an MJM, please answer as a blog comment below. If you have previously won an MJM, but you'd like to submit a guess beforethe hint, you may do so by PMing me; once the hint has been posted, everyone should answer on the blog. If that's confusing to you, check out the handy decision tree I threw together to help guide you. If you're not sure if you've won before, check in the MJM Results spreadsheet linked below.
Answer: Congratulations to @jimsleftear, who earned his third consecutive MJM win after identifying this week's clip, drawn from the 5/13/89 Whipping Post. With this win, @jimsleftear becomes only the 19th contestant ever to record a seventh victory, thereby elevating him to the MJM Hall of Champions and Emeritus status. Although now forced to retire from regular participation, the MJM does offer the occasional opportunity for all Emeriti to test their proven credentials against the current crop of top players. In addition, you may even see a role reversal some time soon, when the likes of @jimsleftear gets to select the theme and tracks. I hope everyone had a great holiday on the 4th. Enjoy summer - Tour beckons soon!
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.
