MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 99

Welcome to the 99th Mystery Jam Monday 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...

Tuesday Hint: No hint needed this week.

Wednesday Answer: Congratulations to long time listener first time caller @andrewrose on his big win with the 7/15/99 post-"Kung" jam. As far as that particular style of '99 jamming goes, it doesn't get much better. See you all next week when we celebreate the 100th edition of Mystery Jam Monday.

Pretty much a shot in the dark, but that has to be from '99.

andrewrose Specifically, the post-Kung jam. Think I got my first MMMJ. Just under the centennial wire. Was just raving about this show to a friend. Prefer the Meatstick, but good times that tour!
, comment by bl002e
bl002e July or December '99 immediately jumped to mind. Before I could find a jam that fit, I'm pretty sure that andrewrose got it.
, comment by ucpete
ucpete @andrewrose I'm positive it's that jam from 7/15/99... nice call. As an aside, this show was webcast-- is there an old pixelated stream rip or at least a more SBDish recording floating around?

andrewrose July 99 was dope. Still waiting for the band to give Meatstick the kind of treatment they did on this night...

@ucpete

I know, have never heard a great sounding copy of this show. Strangely enough I've never been able to track down decent-sounding copies of a lot of great shows I saw that year. Time for some archival releases!

Heady_Lamarr Thats a BOAF jam drumbeat but that "squiggle" effect in the background is something I can't place. Does Trey still use that?

I was always under the impression the squiggle came from his keyboards, if that's the case he doesn't use it anymore. However, I really have no idea. I'd love to actually find out what that comes from.

Trey's keyboard that is, not Page's.

Yeah, it's weird. Some tours seem too have many good sounding AUD's and others don't. Not that I have meticulously delved into etree trying to find every source I can, it just seems that some years have a lot more than others.

Thunder nice Andrew. i was at that PNC show, it was killer. the Split > Kung -> JAM is at the top of my personal phish highlights. wish we had it in higher fidelity.

if anyone can tell me what that theme is trey is playing, i'd appreciate it. it turns up most frequently in 99, but i've spotted it in 98 too and as far back as 97.

it reminds me of mike oldfield's tubular bells. wondered how long it would take before surfacing in a MMJ. that pattern of notes from Trey has been driving me crazy since 99. off the top of my head, you could check out the Tube from Oswego, it's in that as well, starting around the 4:20 mark.

I think you're referring to what I call/consider the jiboo riff (used a lot in jiboo, on the studio jiboo, too). It was definitely a heavily used reoccurring riff/theme in 99.
, comment by maddyb4me
maddyb4me Hey Thunder.... Im not sure about others- but the "theme" you refer to is Crosseyed and Painless" from The Oswego Tube. Trey loves to tease this song, ever since they played it for Halloween 96'.

Hope this clears us your mystery.
, comment by Thunder
Thunder @maddyb4me - I'm familiar with C&P of course (and I did a quick relisten to it) but I don't hear that. There's a bouncy little thing Page does on the keyboard, but I don't identify that with the tease I'm talking about in the MMJ and the Oswego Tube starting ~4:20. Can you point me to a version/timing? Anyways, thanks. I think @TheDeputy has it spotted.

@TheDeputy - yeah agreed, you've got it with the Jibboo. I totally brain farted on it. I wish i could recall some examples off the top of my head but it can definitely be found in 98 and 97 (maybe earlier) ... several years before it surfaced as Gotta Jibboo. Here's a link to the part of Tubular Bells (Side 1 Part 3) that the Jibboo riff always reminded me of: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewIdPNvHoc8&feature=fvwrel

yoda1978 I think that it's 7/15/99 - Homdel, NJ

During the Jam coming out of Kung about 1/2 way through...

Is it possible that a Jersey Boy might win on a clip from NJ?

Maybe my "time" on the Oswego Tube is different than yours... I have crowd cheering for the first minute, so maybe its a little different than your version. At my time, at 4:30- Trey begins Crosseyed licks (at least that I hear). It continues until the breakdown back into Tube.

Anyway- glad somebody cleared this up for you.

that's great, that's the reoccurring line right there in that youtube vid you linked. cool.

ucpete It's funny how many people refer to this as "MMJ" and not "MJM". My Morning Jacket fans out there?

, comment by Thunder
Thunder So the same gotta jibboo melody line (which i find sounds identical to that section of mike oldfield's tubular bells side 1 pt. 3) is played in the 8/3/98 gumbo starting ~13:30.
