Welcome to the 197th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday. I'd like to thank @bl002e for all his hard work the past few years, attempting to stump us with some great jams across Phish's history. But he's moved on to bigger and better things now and has handed me the reins, so I'll be your new MJM host. I hope my work on the Jam Charts will help me stump you all -- I'm excited to start, and I won't let you guys down. That's right folks, MJM 3.0 is about to begin!

The winner will receive an MP3 download courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery jam clip. Though I don't envision doing this anytime soon, given we're approaching MJM #200, I am reserving the right to select different portions of jams that have previously appeared in the MJM. Each person gets one guess per day, with the second “day” starting after I post the hint. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answer to follow on Wednesday. Good luck!

Tuesday update: No hint needed this week...

Answer: Congratulations and welcome to first-time winner and first-time poster, @trich12345, who came out of the woodwork and correctly guessed 9/17/99 "Viola Lee Blues" from Shoreline. Maybe he too figured that for my first MJM, I should choose a jam from my first show. Next week's MJM won't be so straightforward.

Clarification / Reminder: In the past, we have always revealed the MJM answer on Wednesday even if answered correctly on Monday or Tuesday, as some folks like to play even if they aren't the first to figure it out. If I can get spoiler tags working for the MJM, and if my schedule permits, I will post the correct answer behind a spoiler tag once it's been guessed correctly no matter when that happens. But if not, for future reference, when I say "No hint needed this week" that means that one of the comments contains the correct answer (I'll try to avoid hypercryptic metahints), and I'll post the answer Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. See you next week! All-Time MJM Results

SirHarpua I can't hear it; my speakers at work don't work. So I'm going to just take a stab and say Bowie 11/9/96.

mcgrupp81 Just when I thought I was out... Little late the welcoming party but I'll buy you a toaster some time in the future. One that doubles as a time machine if I can find one. Saw that everyone had this double covered and smothered. I loved the footage from Bittersweet Motel featuring this and other 12/11 jams. A fine start. Thanks to @bl002e and can't forget the originator lumpbloclod(?).

Babyrattlesnakes "No hinted needed this week"? Either someone has already nailed it, or the show is from the second week of November.

All about hearing the extra guitar (more obvious) and bass (less obvious)... without that it's basically impossible to use any other musical reasoning to narrow it down beyond "sounds like late '90s".

lovethisband Little late to the party, but thanks for pickin' up the reins @ucpete! I've very much enjoyed your comments and posts on this site, and look forward to seeing what's in store for the upcoming MJMs!
