MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 318

Welcome to the 318th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the most difficult of March. 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 these four mystery clips, which are connected by a theme – the theme needn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Answer: Congrats to @justino on his fifth MJM win – now it's not a matter of if, but a matter of when he reaches the Holy MJM Emeritus status. This week's puzzle, another from the mind of the @wumbo, had some Jerry undertones, some fantastic sounding music, Type II all over it, and the same song ("Tweezer") on the same month and day (August 1st), four times: 8/1/15 "Tweezer," 8/1/98 "Tweezer," 8/1/14 "Tweezer," and 8/1/99 "Tweezer." @justino fell for none of the traps, and in less than 200 minutes, cut down the nets on #5. Monday brings us MJM319, and a resetting of the difficulty down to the bottom rung.

ANNOUNCING THE PHISH.NET NARRATION CHART

The Silver Anniversary of arguably the purest live performance of Trey's Gamehendge saga, The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday, offers us the ideal occasion to unveil this new project. And, we have to admit, the rigid deadline definitely helped expedite the process.

Legend has it that, much like the song cycle’s subsequent performance at what has come to be called the “GameHoist” show, the venue was under-sold. The crowd clearly gave the band its patient, undivided attention. Whatever prompted the band to finally immerse their live audience in the full story in Sacramento 25 years ago today, the tape of the show became a rite of passage for nearly every fan, thanks to the widely shared and very crispy SBD.

Born inside a .net forum thread, a group of regular contributors committed to what seemed to us a worthwhile endeavor to compile transcriptions and summaries of every narration available on audio recordings. The thread began shortly after the release of St. Louis '93, prompted by my listening to the powerful “Harpua” from the April date. As soon as the thread got legs, I knew I would have to put my money where my mouth is.

MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 317

Welcome to the 317th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the penultimate MJM of March. 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 date of these three mystery clips, which are connected by a theme that needn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. After the hint, each person gets one more guess before the contest ends Wednesday, and the winner announced shortly thereafter. Good luck!

Answer: Congrats to @prab_mode on his second win, pulling a sneak attack on the blog before the hint dropped. He correctly identified three consecutive (and not on the Jam Charts) versions of "Bathtub Gin": 8/9/98, 8/16/98, and 11/4/98. Thanks again to @wumbo for his masterful EQ work in creating this week's puzzle. Check out MJM318 on Monday morning...

BEYOND THE POND PODCAST: PHISH PANDORA

Beyond the Pond is a bi-weekly podcast in which Brian Brinkman (@sufferingjuke on Twitter) and David Goldstein (@daveg924 on Twitter) use the music of Phish as a gateway to introduce the listener to many other bands, the vast majority of which are not jambands. An episode generally begins with a deep dive into a designated portion of Phish improvisation, and then can spin off to any variety of musical themes and other acts, the overarching purpose being introducing the listener to as many new and different bands as possible.

Welcome to the 316th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second-easiest of March. 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 date of these two mystery clips, which are connected by a theme that needn't be part of the correct answer.

After the hint, each person gets one more guess before the contest ends Wednesday, and the winner announced shortly thereafter. Good luck!

Answer: Congrats to @TwiceBitten, who was already moving in for the kill when his fellow guessers gave half correct answers to confirm his suspicion: this week's jams were the 11/7/98 "AC/DC Bag" and the 12/30/97 "AC/DC Bag," That's six wins for @TwiceBitten – will he reach nirvana soon? Find out shortly with MJM317... [thanks to @wumbo again for his audio engineering handiwork and fresh puzzle ideas]

MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 315

Welcome to the 315th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first* and easiest of March. 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, I'll post a hint. 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 before the 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: Congrats to @Mshow96 on his first MJM win! This week he made short work of the MJM by quickly identifying the Baker's Dozen "Waves" outro from 7/23/17, pulling in two LivePhish download codes for his effort. Let this be a reminder to the MJM pros out there: never let the blog win the last MJM of the month, as the first-timers will be extra motivated to scoop up a twofer! Speaking of twofers, MJM316 goes animal style on Monday.

This week's theme was "Jams from songs that debuted in 1999," a nod to all the '99 jams seen on the MJM of late, and the clips were the 12/28/13 "Sand," the 9/11/00 "What's the Use?", and the 11/28/03 "First Tube." Shout out to @wumbo for the assist again. Come back Monday for the chance to win two codes on MJM315.

COLORADO '88 PHISH NEW TO CIRCULATION

You’re probably already familiar with LivePhish’s Colorado ‘88 release, which includes a significant number of songs performed by Phish on their first trip out to Colorado in the summer of 1988, nearly thirty years ago. But you haven’t heard those shows in full, because none of them ever circulated in full. Thanks to Niel Ringstad (who attended several of the Colorado ‘88 shows), 7/29/88, 7/30/88, 8/4/88 and 8/5/88 will now circulate almost in full for the first time. They were taped by Niel’s friend Mike Lynch.

You heard that right: among hours of other Colorado ‘88 music, the so-called “Jazz Odyssey” set----when Fish was uhm unavailable, and Mike and Page accompanied Trey on drums for a few jazz standards----is now about to circulate for the first time. (There is must-hear banter from Trey in the “Antelope” about Fish’s unavailability earlier on in the evening.) And if you’re wondering where the tapes of 8/3/88 are, well. They have yet to be located, but might turn up in another 30 years, who knows. Enormous thanks are also due to Jeff Goldberg, who did the transfering from Niel’s analog masters, as well as the restoring and mastering work to make these recordings sound as good as they possibly can. Jeff’s words are below. -charlie
