MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 340

Welcome to the 340th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the last and most difficult of August. 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 @lostboy01 on his second MJM win, absolutely shredding this week's 'difficult' puzzle by identifying the 5/24/88 "Run Like an Antelope," the 6/21/88 "Whipping Post," and the 7/12/88 "Sneakin' Sally through the Alley" vocal jam. If you've ever wondered what Burlington sounded like in 1988, this MJM's for you! Stay tuned for an easier take on the contest for MJM341 on Tuesday, after the Labor Day Dick's holiday. Safe travels!

mcgrupp81 Methinks this jam theme is paying homage to the 30yr(!) anniversary of the Penn State Tela jam. And it happens to be my son's B-day today! He's off from school and I'm off from work and when I started playing the mystery jam, he started paying attention and bobbing his head to the Sneaking Sally VJ. He's listened to plenty of Phish background music over the years, but the VJ reaction makes me think he might be into Fishman vacuum solos as well. Everyone have a safe and happy rest of your summer/Labor Day. Viva Phish.

Clearly by “most difficult” I meant “will be solved in less than a half hour.”

I was hoping folks would hear the VJ and get really mad about the prospect of checking tons of YEMs to no avail... but it’s clear that @lobsterooy01 knows when something is a trap :)
