Welcome to the 333rd edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second easiest puzzle for the month of July. The winner will receive a 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 two mystery clips, which are connected by a theme that needsn'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!
Hint: What does Phish have in common with Parksville, NY, Indio, CA, Auburn, ME, and Volney, NY?
Answer: Congratulations to @patper, who won his second MJM after using the hint, jams from Phish festivals, to identify the two tracks, the Coventry CDT, and the Scent Of A Mule from the Great Went. Phish held two early festivals in 1991, one at Arrowhead Ranch in Parkville, NY, on July 20 and 21, and a second at Larrabee Farm aka Amy's Farm in Auburn, ME, on August 3. Perhaps more familar to most fans were Camp Oswego, held in Volney, NY, on July 17 and 18, 1999, and Festival 8 in Indio, CA, which took place on October 30 and 31, and November 1, 2009.
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.
