Welcome to the 338th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second of August. The winner will receive THREE MP3 download codes courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net (and @johnnyd, who threw his double code victory back into the pot last week). To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the two mystery clips, which are connected by a theme that needn't be part of the correct answer. 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 @Hamphish on crossing the halfway mark to MJM Emeritus status with his fourth win (and second this summer)! As some may have noticed, he typo'd in his first response, which he quickly corrected before anyone else had posted. While he did technically submit a second guess, after discussing with my fellow MJM crew members, @HarborSeal (who technically submitted the first correct answer), and @Hamphish himself, I have decided that @Hamphish is the genuine winner, taking two of the three codes home, while @HarborSeal will be rewarded the third code for being technically correct first. While I am super reluctant to deviate from the letter of the law, the spirit of the rules was not breached in this case: @Hamphish clearly meant to answer with the 12/31/98 "Mike's Song" and the 7/26/17 "Carini" – there was no "Mike's Song" played on 12/31/99, he stated the correct and super specific theme (jams from the two shows during which Phish played "1999"), and he corrected himself before anyone else came it to swoop the prize. Let this be a reminder to folks to double check your work before submitting, as next time we might not have so extra codes built up to dole out! Off to Curveball... shit.

Hamphish Mike's Song 12-31-99
Carini 7-26-17

Both shows had 1999 played in it!

Hamphish Shoot I meant 12-31-98 for the first jam! Understandable mistake given the theme right? Good thing they didn't play Mike's at NYE 99 hehe.

HarborSeal ooooohhhh @hamphish....I'm sure it's a typo....

I think the clips are:

Mike's Song 12/31/1998
Carini 7/26/17

Before I saw your post, I had the Mike's but had not grokked the theme or come close to finding Carini. I feel cheap. I'll tell you what: there's three codes up for grabs, and if my guess wins, I'll share.

HarborSeal Oh, I didn't see your correction post. I am also 100% okay with the blog forgiving the typo.

PhreePhish Ahh the 12/31/98 Mike's-- the younger cousin of the 11/7/98 Mike's.
