MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 122

Welcome to Mystery Jam Monday Part 122 here at Phish.net. As usual we will be playing for an MP3 download, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. The rules haven't changed: you need to correctly identify the song and the date to win. Post your guess in the comments. One guess per person per day (with the second “day” starting after I post the hint). A hint will be posted on Tuesday (if necessary) and the answer will be posted on Wednesday. Good luck...

Wednesday Answer: Congrats to McGrupp81 for being the first to get the 5/26/89 "YEM"... obviously a fairly atypical version. The Blog will return on Monday with another Mystery Jam. Happy Thanksgiving!

WHY THE "CLIFFORD BALL, 1994" WILL ALWAYS BE MY FAVORITE SHOW

Some days you get just end up neck deep in it. I knew I was in for trouble when I woke up incredibly hungry and willingly broke my morning breakfast routine and schedule for immediate satisfaction. Fast forward to lunch and a (luckily) damage-free fender bender at the Traffic Circle Satan himself would apologize for and I'm writing off today. Arriving back at my desk, I need to take the edge off, so in go the headphones. Now normally, I'd search for a show to listen to, but inevitably a random show will only add to the day's frustration. That's it! I'm opening Spotify and putting on A Live One.

And then everything changed...

Wednesday Answer: Congrats to @frankzappasmustache2012 for being the first to identify the 11/12/94 "Down With Disease," which, as was noted in the comments, turned eighteen on Monday. And, yes, the Blog acknowledges making this MJ easier than it could have been but, in my defense, I listened to the clip three different times and just didn't have the heart to cut it off before the return to the "DWD"-esque theme. It was just too glorious. The Blog will return on Monday with another Mystery Jam.

DELINQUENCY QUIZ FOR PHISH FANS (OR OTHERS)

Phish fans frequently get generalized-about, ignorantly, by the media. Are we a bunch of delinquents? Take this basic 15-question quiz to see if the media is right about YOU.

If appropriate, select multiple answers, because you get points for each answer choice other than (A).

If you cannot truthfully answer any of a question's answer choices, because you can't recall or otherwise, you get ZERO points for that question.

Please COMMENT with your (honest) scores so that we can demonstrate convincingly to all readers that at least online Phish fans are law-abiding, conscientious, and courteous citizens, who genuinely care about the public welfare.

A = zero points.
B = one (1) point.
C = two (2) points.
D = three (3) points.
E = four (4) points.

Before we go, I hope you'll indulge the Blog in a small plea for charitable donations. As most of you know, Phish.net is an all-volunteer project of the Mockingbird Foundation. While donations to Mockingbird are always welcome, if you enjoy the Mystery Jam (or Phish.net, in general) and can afford to, please consider making a donation to the Red Cross or one of the many other worthwhile charitable organizations helping families recover from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.

Thursday Answer: Congrats to jmponder for being the first to ID the 7/29/98 "Buried Alive." Really makes you wonder why they never tried to jam that song out again. The Blog will return on Monday with another Mystery Jam...

"THE LAWN BOYS" BENEFIT FOR MOCKINGBIRD THIS FRIDAY, NOV. 9 IN NYC

The Lawn Boys, a Phish tribute band, will be doing a benefit performance for The Mockingbird Foundation, to support our mission of providing music education to underserved kids and potential emergency grants to replace musical instruments in schools ravaged by Hurricane Sandy (as we've done in previous disasters, as soon as worthy beneficiaries can be identified, a process that can take several months).

The show will be happening at The Canal Room in Manhattan at 285 West Broadway, NYC, beginning a bit earlier than the 10 p.m. time originally scheduled because of the venue rescheduling a storm cancelled show; The Lawn Boys will be starting around 8:30 p.m. and playing until about 11:00 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.

Further information about The Lawn Boys is available on their Facebook page or website www.thelawnboysnyc.com. Further information about The Mockingbird Foundation is available at Phish.net's sister website at www.mbird.org.

If you can't make the show and would like to donate to the benefit and Mockingbird's disaster relief efforts, use the "donate" buttons on Phish.net or Mbird.org, put "The Lawn Boys benefit" or "Sandy Disaster Relief" in the PayPal comment box and we'll count your proceeds with The Lawn Boys benefit proceeds. (You'll also get a "Donated in 2012" achievement badge on your Phish.net user profile if you haven't yet donated to Mockingbird this year).

Saturday Answer: Looks like ucpete is our winner with the 11/14/85 "Hurricane." After five days without power at Mystery Jam HQ, that joke doesn't seem quite as funny anymore. Nevertheless, the sweet nectar of electricity is back and that means the Blog will return with MJM120 on Monday...

1988: THE OVERLOOKED TRANSITION YEAR

Phish fans correctly identify certain years or periods in the band’s history as “breakthrough” ones, moments when the band elevated its playing style, improvisation, sound, and song catalog to a new and higher level. Most commonly identified among these transition periods is August 1993, 1994, 1995, and 1997. Others rightly point to 2000, 2003 - 2004, and perhaps 2012 as seminal periods in the band’s musical development. 1988 is rarely mentioned in such company, but should be, and here’s why.

THE FOURTH BALL (UNCOVERED)

In case you missed it, Phish.net user @LawnMemo has taken on the sizeable task of reviewing each and every ghost, in order, at his new project site "The Daily Ghost". Clearly a man who believes in showing this endeavour the utmost attention, Myke reached out to Brad Sands for some additional info on the unofficial first performance of "Ghost" at his house on June 6, 1997. Brad had this to add about how that gig came about...

Before the band was to head off to Europe they decided to
play a warmup “show” on the back porch at my house
where Pete Carini lived also. There was probably about 100
people there, (probably about 20 dogs) and most decided to
camp overnight. The band actually played 2 sets that night,
both of them being the same set. The tape that circulates is
the second of these 2 sets.

-Brad Sands

You'll also want to check out the full review for a nice cautionary tale from Brad on the dangers of actually having Phish play your backyard.
