Welcome to the 341st edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam
Monday Tuesday (Happy Labor Day!), the first and easiest of September. 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 answers correctly in the first 24 hours, a hint will be posted. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!
Reminder: For the first MJM of each month, 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, but you'd like to submit a guess before the hint, you may do so by PMing me; once the hint has been posted, everyone should answer on the blog. If that's confusing to you, check out the handy decision tree I threw together to help guide you. If you're not sure if you've won before, check in the MJM Results spreadsheet linked below.
Hint: This jam was played at a venue Phish also played this past summer.
Answer: Congrats to @experiencechuck on his second win in the past 97 MJMs – at his current pace, he'll reach the MJM HoF sometime after MJM800! But if he follows in the footsteps of previous multi-MJM winners, his win rate will accelerate and sometime next year he'll hit Lucky Seven. This week's MJM was the 7/3/00 "Runaway Jim," a song that has only been played one other time in a dozen Phish Phish visits to Camden. The hint was twofold: yes, Phish did play Camden this summer as well, but also, the SBD source I used for this week's MJM came from what fans know as the Past Summer Compilation. It always pays to pay attention! MJM342 takes us back to the Monday schedule...
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.
