Welcome to the 206th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday. This week, we have a daily double edition, and we'll be giving away two prizes for two different puzzles. Each winner will receive an MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win the first prize, be the first person to identify the song and date of the first part (i.e., the first 30 seconds) of the mystery jam clip. To win the second prize, be the first person to identify each of the 14 song titles in the clip -- you do not need to identify the dates of each of the 14 clips to win the second prize. A push in the right direction for the megaclip: each song is a Phish original, though most are rarities (and one has never been played live). Each person gets one guess per day per puzzle, with the second “day” starting after I post the hint. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answers to follow on Wednesday.
Technical note: Like MJM200, on some devices, the longer track skips back to the beggining a minute or two in. Use the Souncloud link for more reliable playback if you can't hear all 14 clips.
Answers: The Blog bites the dust again -- twice, on two touchdowns (and PATs) worth of clips! Congratulations to @justino, who in 9 minutes (mere seconds before @P0opyw0opy) managed to identify the 8/6/10 Simple from the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA. In doing so, he takes home a download code good at LivePhish.com. And congratulations to bust-out maestro @obliviousfool17 who was neither oblivious nor foolish in figuring out the song titles for 14 clips of Phish originals going back 30 years; he (w)ent to the b(l)og and got himself a LivePhish.com download code too. For those on the quest, I'm guessing you know by now that most MJMs spell something, but if not, you can view all 14 answers in a row in the MJM Results spreadsheet below. I'm off next week, but in my stead will be a special guest and colleague of mine from the Jam Charts Team, who has sat back and watched me fail to stump you repeatedly, so he's ready to pick up the slack. MJM 3.0: keeps it rollin'!

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.
