Welcome to the 215th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday. The winner will receive TWO MP3 codes good for free downloads of any two shows, courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery jam clip. 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 hint (11:49 AM ET): You may need to go a camera to figure this one out.

Answer: Congratulations to first-time winner, @TwiceBitten, who takes home two codes for reading right through my hint and identifying the 7/15/94 David Bowie from (Nikon at) Jones Beach Amphitheater on Long Island.

Note: When the MJM started nearly six years ago, @lumpblockclod was able to post a mix of more popular and more obscure jams, and would post much longer clips, sometimes upwards of three minutes. The MJM was great fun becaue it relied on folks' musical memory to win, or searching through their local music archives for things they may've recognized, or maybe they'd pull a few shows from The Spreadsheet if they thought they were going down the right path. This was still the case when @bl002e took over too, but during his tenure, three years ago this week, PhishTracks came out... and it changed the game forever. Now we're firmly planted in the' / PhishTracks era, where everyone has every jam at their fingertips, and scanning through dozens and dozens of jams per hour is not only possible, it's routine for many. For that reason, I may be moving the goalposts back a bit in future MJMs. It'll still be the same game at the same time each week, but I'm going to experiment with some new ideas to keep it fresh and make it challenging. First, as a reminder, I am reserving the right to reuse jams that have been used in previous MJMs -- I won't post the exact same clip from a previous MJM, but you may hear a different section of a previously-used jam. Second, I may post multi-part clips, or multiple, shorter segments from the same jam or the same show. Or I may post clips from different shows and ask folks to find what they have in common. I will keep the fundamental objective of the game intact, and it'll still be fun, but I do think we're in a good position to switch things up a bit in the near future. That said, tune in next week for MJM216! All-Time MJM Results

JMart Nah dudes, this is an AC/DC for sure.
I would guess somewhere in 94, but I am entirely too lazy to go digging. 4/13/94.

Nice work. I was hoping it'd take more than 5 minutes for folks to figure out the hint! I might need to toughen up those hints in the future.
