Welcome to the 344th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the final and most difficult of September, and a special edition: 8-time MJM winner and Hall of Famer @justino has chosen this week's jams and handed them off to fellow emeritus @wforwumbo (whose audio wizardry has been on full display for months) for beautification. The result? Some dope jams that make a fair MJM, but one not for the faint of heart. 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 the three mystery clips, which are connected by a theme that needn't be part of the correct answer. 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!
Answer: Congrats to @HarborSeal on crossing the halfway mark to retirement with his fourth win – this time, with the "Tweezer" already in hand, he quickly realized that the baseball cards of three closers in the '90s hinted that these jams came from three tour closers in the '90s: 12/17/95 "Tweezer," 11/29/98 "Simple," and 12/13/97 "Vultures." Stay alert for MJM345, when we'll begin a month of single jam MJMs from across Phish's history.
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.
