MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 268

ATTENTION: This is the first week where we'll play by a new rule: only folks who have never won an MJM are allowed to answer before the hint (and every first MJM of the month henceforth). 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.

Welcome to the 268th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first and easiest of April. 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!

Update: I received a correct answer 29 minutes in from a previous MJM winner via PM – no need for other previous winners to PM their answers. Folks who haven't won the MJM before: the clock is ticking!

Answer: Congrats to @Bob_Loblaw, who, after dozens of wild guesses over the years, identified this week's 10/24/14 DWD – while I'd love to make a wise crack about "even a broken clock is right twice a day," considering I met the man in person at the same venue 9 months later, and given how quickly he won this week's MJM, I'm guessing he was at that fantastic Fall '14 Forum show too and knows that jam by heart. See you Monday for MJM269!

That's right. I knew it was a ghost, and I knew it was 3.0. This is probably the closest I would've been. It really impresses me how all these winners do this. I was checking some 3.0 ghosts before I walked my dog, but I would've never had the patience to get his. Listening to this clip from the full ghost now.

Is it right? I'm at work right now so I didn't have much time to verify. I just remember this from doing the 2014 JOTY tournament (it pays off haha)...I was nervous though because I know they did this exact same jam later that year but I couldn't remember if the clip was from the ghost or the other jam I couldn't think of

Yes this show sorta took a backseat to the next night's tweezerthon

runlikecarini 3.0 was obvious from the get go and I was thinking DWD also. But that's probably because I was combing through 3.0 DWDs for clip 1 last week before the "covers" hint came out... Big tip for all you new or inexperienced MJMers. Pay attention to stuff you listen to each week, even if you don't come close to solving. Keep note of how each musician's tone, the sound of the round, how loud the crowd is, jamming themes (funk, space & ambience, etc...). It made sound obvious (thanks mom) but simple things like that and just being observant allowed me to get a lot better at this pretty quickly.

And as a sidenote, happy to see @Bob_Loblaw get his first win. With how many times I've seen you throw out guesses I'm glad you hit one. Cheers!
