MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 360

Welcome to the 360th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the fourth, last, and hardest of January! @wforwumbo back in the captain's chair for a hot minute, as my dissertation seems to finally be cooling off - thank you to @ucpete for graciously trading reins with me. This week we have a delectable little challenge courtesy of MJM Hall of Famer @jimsleftear, and I do have to say he's come up with a real stumper. So strap on your seatbelts, grab your favorite pair of headphones or speakers, and get your best tapes out of the catalog for this one. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the three mystery clips. The clips are connected by a theme, but the theme 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, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Hint: Something smells bad... or more accurately, there is some stink in the air.

Answer: Talk about on heck of a first win! Thanks to the hint, @Matty1222 snags his first download code by tying together three jams from shows in which the Makisupa Policeman code word involved the word "stink": the 11/15/96 Mike's Song, the 7/12/99 Foreplay/Long Time, and the 12/28/96 Weekapaug Groove. With a bludgeoning like that, will our new competitor become the newest member to ride the ranks to the promised land of emeriti? Stay tuned in the coming weeks to find out - or even beat him to the punch!

HarborSeal Ah, you got me, Matty. I had 7/12, and had grokked the theme, but hadn't found the other two.

There's a typo in your answer, and I'm writing out the correct one, but I request that the blog just give the win to Matty1222. It's clearly just a typo. I'm two short of Emeritus and I want to get 'em both on my own efforts.

11/15/96 Mike's
7/12/99 Foreplay / Long Time
12/28/96 'Paug

MiguelSanchez The 11/15/95 was the only one I had figured out. That's a beat and one of my favorites.
I never would've hit on that foreplay/long time. Nice work.

Matty1222 I've been trying to win one of these forever and got shaky hands when I realized I cracked all three. Sorry for the typo. I owe this win to the Makisupa Keyword Chart. I simply checked what versions had the key word as "stink" and took a deep dive into those shows. God, this feels good to finally win one.

RD_SF Impressive win. Note that the 11/15/95 Mike's has a *very* similar sounding part at ~ 9:05 when listening on phishtracks.

On another note, perhaps related to the clue, I once had 7/21/91 playing on loudspeakers at a pool (this was back in college, life guarding) and an old man, probably in his 80s came up and said "THIS SOUNDS LIKE MAD COW DISEASE".

I hear ya with the 95 Mike’s sounding similar. Once I knew of the typo, I was praying there wasn’t a show on 11/15/95, let alone a Mike’s Song. Thank God that show didn’t have a Makisupa or else I would be scrambling.

jimsleftear Well done. That hint was prett revealing but that was fun nonetheless. Way to go!
