MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 273

Welcome to the 273rd edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second and second-easiest of May. 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 both mystery clips – these clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess – 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!

Answer: Congrats to @FunkyCFunkyDo on his fifth MJM win – that makes back-to-back weeks where the winner takes the step into the upper class of MJM winners, though @FunkyCFunkyDo and @TwiceBitten still need a couple more wins each to become MJM 1%ers. This week's theme was one of remuneration, and by identifying the 4/29/94 Fee and the 2/14/03 Fee, @FunkyCFunkyDo collects the standard weekly emolument: a free download code from LivePhish.com.

A rambling note about icons: You see those two icons below this note? The first icon says "LivePhish" on it and links to LivePhish.com – click it and redeem your codes or buy stuff! Did you know that for more than a year after LivePhish.com came into existence, the band gave 100% of LivePhish.com profits to the Mockingbird Foundation, and that they continue to give a significant slice of every purchase to the foundation to this day? Did you know that they've sent me all the free download codes so I can give them away to you each week for the MJM?? They're amazing like that, so the next time you're aching to hear a show and thinking about heading to the forum to look for a ground score, consider buying directly from their site instead. If you're already stocked up on free codes, think about donating to the Mockingbird Foundation! It'll make you feel good, it'll make me feel good, and it'll make kids feel good about music, so they can grow up to make good music, which will make us all feel good. The second icon says "Mystery Jam Monday Results" on it, and links to the Mystery Jam Monday Results, which are stored in a beautifully-built, color-coded, pre-programmed spreadsheet tracking the results of every MJM. It's updated a couple times a week – first with the MJM number, the number of clips (represented by the number of rows for that week's puzzle), and the date of the MJM; then with the link to the MJM, and sometimes even with the band playing in the clips; and finally, when the correct answer is dropped, I put the winner in the spreadsheet before I update the blog. You want to know how many wins different users have? Check the spreadhseet. You want to re-listen to MJM69? Check the spreadhseet. You want to know which clips have been used previously, even though you know that double-dipping is allowed (though it's a good bet the clips chosen each week have never been used)? Check the spreadhseet!

Bob_Loblaw The first one seems so obvious......But obviously isn't.

FunkyCFunkyDo 4.29.94 Fee
2.14.03 Fee

Both are Fee.

The latter features a beautifully woven, hypnotic jam, which flows seamlessly into a thundering and explosive Taste. Which then sets up, perhaps, the most celebratory and inspirational jam Phish has ever performed: 2.14.03 Bathtub Gin.

Bob_Loblaw Well done Funky!

Glad I went through 20 ScentOAM's looking for the first clip ;)

So you knew the '03 Fee right away? 1st one wasn't too bad but I didn't even bother on the 2nd. Curious what the hint would have been.

Heard the clip and knew someone was going to but it didn't feel right to me

Yeah, I knew that 2.14.03 Fee right away. To me, that segment of Fee -> Taste, Bathtub Gin is one of Phish's career best 40-minute stretches of music, no hyperbole.

The other jam, though, took me on a wild goose chase. My thought process looked something like this: "Since one jam is Fee, the other one can't be Fee, too obvious -> SOAM? No, can't be SOAM, too obvious -> maybe it's a Fee fakeout -> Flat Fee! -> No, Flat Fee sounds nothing like that -> Maybe, FREE -> no, this jam sounds 93/94 to me, Free didn't exist then -> hmmm, so maybe it is a Fee..." Then I listened to some outro jams from 93/94 Fees and found it.

Classic MJM mindfuck for you. I heard the 1st clip and heard Fee, then heard the SOAMule ending and thought it was a trick. Clip sounded very 94 so a quick trip to the jam chart revealed that one quick. The 03 Fee jam was definitely a "know it or you don't" so good for you on attaining Total Recall and nailing the 94 Fee jam.

illbuyyouaewe As a constant failure at these things, I am really enjoying the write-ups on how you guys solved the MJM.

I hope that the future winners will continue to do something like this.
