MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 413

Welcome to the 413th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the third contest of April. 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 both mystery clips. 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. Happy holidays!

Answer: Congrats to @sumac22 on his first MJM win, identifying both Summer '99 jams: 7/24/99 ("The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday" ->) "Jam" and 7/8/99 "Simple." MJM414 drops Monday - stay safe!

I read what you said and three things came to mind.

1)A Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episode where Homer disappears into a wall in his home and a flummoxed Ned Flanders exclaims, "As the tree said to the lumberjack, I'm stumped".

2)The scene from "Field of Dreams" where Kevin Costner's character is watching a Red Sox game at Fenway Park and hears "Go the Distance" in the air. That's you man. You need to go the distance and solve this.

3)You said you were in great pain. Maybe that's a good thing based on your username. I envision a man subjected to poison sumac in his daily life, which, according to my extremely limited search, is a plant that some botanists consider "the most toxic plant species in the United States". Maybe this pain of searching for the 1st jam is a distraction from the sumac pain.

Good luck with your search. That 1st jam is a nice mellow one appropriate for today and tomorrow, and I must say it's a pretty tasty AUD copy at that.

serpent_deflector I’m in the same boat, even after putting in hours trying to find clip #1. I’m going to have to hold out for the hint. I’ve exhausted all of my ideas of what I thought it sounded like. It sounds like a pretty ambiguous clip, era-wise.

phishroc First one almost sounds like it could be a taste jam from whenever and second a coil jam from whenever. You got us man ?

Congrats on the win! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little jealous lol. But I never came close to looking at 7/24/99. Went through all kinds of Simples, as well as ambient jams from several different years (except for 99 for some reason). Like I said earlier, it sounded pretty ambiguous to me from an era/sound standpoint, due to the clean tones from everyone.

I figured out that Simple pretty quickly as well, because I knew Pete wouldn’t be so cruel as to give us some random Coil outro clip. Or would he? :)

I wouldn't doubt it, haha. Thanks man. I knew that Simple with the Page outro from the first time I pressed play, love that jam. I looked at some different songs for the first clip in the same key. McGrupp, Hydrogen, a couple others, but it kinda led me to dead ends. Then I remembered TMWSIY and that was it! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go gnaw on a block of cheese the size of a car battery. Party on, Garth.
