Welcome to the 310th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the most difficult and final MJM of January. 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 four mystery clips – these clips are connected by a theme that needn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday, or as soon as necessary. Special thanks to the newest member of the MJM Emeritus Crew, @wforwumbo, for constructing this week's contest. Good luck!
Answer: Congrats to @12_29_97_4eva, who was stuck on five wins for an entire year, but now only needs one more MJM victory to reach the promised land! After falling briefly into the "Ghost" trap, he picked apart @wforwumbo's 1999 theme and quickly identified the 7/23/99 "Ghost," the 12/11/99 "Ghost," the 7/21/99 "My Left Toe," and the massive 9/18/99 "Boogie on Reggae Woman." MJM311 and the difficulty will drop shortly: it's n00b week, let's see some new faces!
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.
