Welcome to the 267th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the final and presumably most difficult of March. 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 four mystery clips - these clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the 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: Major league congratulations to @dbertsch, who hit an out-of-the-park, grand slam homer in the bottom of the 9th inning, off a tough knuckleball, to win his 7th and final MJM contest. @dbertsch now joins that super elite club of retired MJM winners, as only its 11th member. Welcome to the Pantheon of MJM Emeriti. As he correctly noted, this week's tracks were all covers, and included the Drowned from 7/17/13, Skin It Back from 2/20/88, Rock & Roll from 9/17/00, and the awesome Have Mercy from 10/20/10. This last clip is part of an excellent SOAM > Have Mercy > Piper > SOAM from the Guyutica show. Fans seemed to have forgotten about this show, which really demonstrated that Phish was back in good form. So check it out, if it's been awhile. Congrats again to @dbertsch. Next week, @ucpete will be back, throwing a nice, underhanded, slow-and-over-the-plate softball for the first (and easiest) MJM of April.
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 over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
