MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 264

Welcome to the 264th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first and easiest of March. The winner will receive two MP3 download codes 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 around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, 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!

Heads-up: Starting with the first MJM next month (April), and only for the first MJM of each month thereafter, my plan is to only allow MJMers who have never won previously to guess before the hint is dropped – as soon as the hint is dropped, anyone can answer. This isn't to discourage veterans from playing or to preclude anyone from winning the easiest MJM each month, but rather to give any new players a day each month where they have a better chance of winning, in hopes of continuing to bring new players into the fold. If anyone thinks this is a really stupid idea (or a really good one), feel free to comment below or PM me – I'm always open to changing my mind.

Answer: Congrats to six-time MJM winner @dbertsch, who is one win away from forced retirement! There are now three players on the doorstep to legendary status (and another three sitting on five wins) – who will get there first? This week's MJM was in fact dropped on the 3/6/09 Hampton reunion anniversary, a run I was lucky enough to attend. But instead of going completely obvious with the Fluffhead crowd noise, I clipped 30 seconds from the last notes played before the reunion – what many of us thought were the last notes we'd ever hear our favorite band play – the 8/15/04 The Curtain With. There's a lot of eeriness in that outro, and it's packed with (mixed) emotions and beauty... but I am really glad Phish got back together 8 years ago and is still doing their thing, even if they don't hit the West Coast in 2017 (despite clearly favoring the Best Coast since 2014, if musical quality is any indication*).

Welcome @sbgalaxy! Just as a heads-up in case you aren't sure: ^ that is your guess for today – please don't submit another guess (or tell anyone the answer if you decide it's something else) until / unless the hint comes tomorrow. That happens around 1 PM Eastern, with the answer to be revealed on Wednesday. Good luck!

Sounds so similar but I just listened to it and I haven't been able to pinpoint the exact spot... you have a time stamp?

Same opinion here. Page transitions to piano only momentarily in the Art Jam. Otherwise, he's all keys.

drshaws Funny. Coventry has been in the do-not-listen bucket for some time - I was in the "I listened to Mike and went home" bucket.

makes perfect cosmic sense. considering this was posted on the anniversary of the Hampton reunion

PhreePhish As for the heads-up @ucpete, i like it, but can we PM you the answer if we find it before the hint? If a first timer gets it before the hint, that's fine. My concern is that if no first-timer gets it before the hint and we're open to it, I won't be able to post the answer if i have it (I'll be at work). Others may have that problem as well.

So basically, it would be first to PM you unless a first-timer gets it before the hint. Sound good?

(Though you may want to suspend the new rule for, I don't know, say, any six-time winners going for emeritus? {Hint, hint, wink wink ;) })

illbuyyouaewe As a regular participant, but always a loser, I really like the idea of leveling the playing field a bit. I think the suggestion of @Phreephish is a good one though.

How far back were you when you did that? I think the next time I'll be in a traffic jam that long will be the apocalypse.

That's totally fair, and I think it's a good idea to say that previous winners can PM as soon as they have the answer on the first Monday of the month, and when I sit down to drop the hint the next morning, if someone has PM'd the correct answer before then, I'll announce the first person to have done so as the winner instead of bothering with the hint.

Though I figured most wink wink six time winners would wanna go out with a bang rather than on some single clip walk in the park on the first day of the first MJM of the month! ;)

It's funny that because the technology and the guessing crew have both gotten so insanely good that the MJM almost making it to the hint – yet still outright losing – is considered "almost" stumping you guys :) And to be clear, I was feeling pretty good about myself with a one clipper making it not only through my work day, but also till I went to sleep! It's all relative to expectations...
