Welcome to the 335th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the penultimate of July. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at / 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, a hint will be posted. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Answer: Congrats to @becker_ross on winning this week's MJM, his second win overall and his first win in more than 5 years and almost 200 MJMs – that's quite the bustout! This week's puzzle was admittedly a bit of a cop-out – I didn't have much time between Tahoe and BGCA to throw something fancier together, so I figured a deep cut from The Victor Disc might give folks fits, especially one Mike's Moma-like bassline. I guess not! I remember when I first read about The Victor Disc in the Rolling Stone article that came out in Winter 2003 – I didn't even realize the interview had taken place until Phish followed the Valentine's Day "My Sweet One" opener with "Cover of the Rolling Stone" on 2/14/03 – and I was so excited about the latenight jam session Trey mentioned they recorded before filming Letterman. Alas, I didn't hear it till almost ten years later! There's some excellent jamming on the album – check it out if it's been a while or you've never delved in.

Though @becker_ross is the clear winner this week, I was hoping the correct answer would have the song and date: 12/19/02 "Blue Over Yellow" – thankfully no one else tried to swoop in on the technicality, making my job much easier. A reminder that while the intro to the MJM each week may look an awful lot like copypasta, I drop little nugs, links, and easter eggs into the nooks and crannies of every post; sometimes they can help guide you to the answer, others, it's just a cool jam or download. We'll be back for MJM336 on Monday – be sure to pay attention as the blog is busy these days!

MiguelSanchez Cool. I was stumped on this one. I thought I heard Page making a dip towards the MLB Jam towards the end, but lucky for me, I hadn't had time to go down that rabbit hole. Hot little number. I need to dust off the Victor Disc and give it a whirl. Nice work @becker_ross.
