Welcome to the 272nd edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first* and easiest of May. 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 song and date of the mystery clip. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!
*REMINDER: As with every first MJM of the month now, only folks who have never won an MJM are allowed to answer before the hint. If you have never won an MJM, please answer as a blog comment below. If you have previously won an MJM and you'd like to submit a guess before the hint, you may do so by PMing me – if no one has answered correctly by the time I'm ready to post the hint, the first correct answer submitted by PM will be awarded the win. If you're not sure if you've won before, look in the MJM Results spreadsheet linked below.
Answer: Congrats to @TwiceBitten who takes down back-to-back MJMs and his fifth overall by PMing me the correct answer: 8/16/93 Reba. I am amazed that only one guess was made in the comments for a clip chosen from the most recent LivePhish release, but there's just no explainin' the things people do. If you're not gonna do your homework, how can you expect to pass the test?! MJM273 drops on Monday, and it'll be a little harder than this week's. In the meantime, watch the MMJM Championship Round unfold as I drop the hint shortly...
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.
