Welcome to the 207th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday. Pete is away this week visiting the inlaws in Mexico, but unfortunately for him, he's in the wrong region of Mexico to catch any of the Phish action there. Anyway, he asked me to step in for him this week - big shoes to fill, but I'll give it a spin, and here we go. The winner will receive an MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / 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.
Answer: Congratulations to @schvice for correctly identifying the 8/21/93 Runaway Jim, his third MJM victory. To his credit, @schvice pegged the unusual (or wacky) nature of the jamming as belonging to 1993, particularly August '93, and began digging from there. I have newfound respect for @ucpete and the challenge he faces each week trying to stump you guys! Fortunately for you, Pete will be back next Monday with MJM 208, and being the competitive guy he is, he's not going to tolerate the blog getting trounced week in and week out forever. So hopefully he'll spin you a real zinger. Good luck and thanks to all for participating.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
