MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 393

Welcome to the 393rd edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the final and most diffilcult of October. The winner will receive two MP3 download codes courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net, as well as six-time winner @garcia17, who threw his code back ino pot after last week's win. Will he cash in some instant karma right away and ride the wave into the MJM Hall of Fame this week? We'll see... To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of all three mystery clips. The clips are connected by a theme; these clips have never been used on previous MJMs, but the theme has. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Answer: And then there were ... two dozen!? That's right, @garcia17 is the latest MJMer to enter the Hall of Fame as an Emeritus by earning his seventh win. He may have taken the most circuitous path of any contestant to get there: after winning MJM154 back before the Tahoe "Tweezer" was played, he took six years off before winning MJM382. Little did we know that during his six year hiatus, he was in the woodshed chiseling his ears, as he rattled off one of the hottest streaks in MJM history winning six of twelve contests the past three months, going back-to-back twice in that stretch (including the past two weeks). His walk-off shot was a brutal Groove Gauntlet: 12/31/94 "Weekapaug Groove," 10/19/95 "Weekapaug Groove," and 12/16/95 "Weekapaug Groove."

He has forgone yet another code, tossing it back into the pool, but his Hall of Fame gift basket contains a half dozen non-transferrable tickets to The Met on 12/3 belonging to SiriusXM subscribers, a cloud login to The Vault, which contains the SBD and webcast for every Phish show ever played, and like all Hall of Famers, a jacket, made of live fish. But perhaps most importantly, he joins the rest of us on this side of the fence, where we sit in our rocking chairs, knitting, coming up with MJM puzzles that no one with a job could ever possibly solve. Congrats, and welcome to the club!

MiguelSanchez Wow. Those first 2, especially the first one, are driving me nuts.

The spacy gibberish in the 3rd clip is keeping me from wanting me to invest too much time on this one though.

A_Buddhist_Prodigy This is the first time I KNOW I have heard the 2nd clip. But alas, I cannot find it. I have an idea, but nothing yet. I'm getting closer to figuring out this dang game!

Firstly, Congrats.
Secondly, wouldn't it have been amusing if the clue had been Ozzy shouting "Sharon!"?

Good 'Paug jams. The 12/16/95 Mike's Groove is a good one. It's a shame that 'Paug jams are ultra rare nowadays.

MiguelSanchez Wow. Nice work.

I listened to 8 suspected ‘94 jams looking for that first one. NYE Weekapaug wasn’t even on my radar.

On the bright side, I’ll be listening to my 9th ‘94 jam in 24 hours.

lysergic This 10/19/95 Mike's Groove is nasty. Never heard it before. Love it when the MJM turns me onto a sick jam.

This is my favorite type of MJM comment

The hint was going to be something like “there’s a reason @A_Buddhist_Prodigy recognizes the second jam - they were there!” while also making a reference to actually reading the intro, which contained a huge hint from the jump.

garcia17 Thanks everyone! I got really lucky with this one. I figured the second clip was from Fall 95 (I was originally thinking a Bowie) and tracked it down without too much trouble, then used the Pete's hint that the theme had been used before to narrow down what I was looking for. I figured first clip was from pre-95, so started my search at 12-31-94 and was instantly rewarded. The third was the most frustrating. I had no idea on an era so was searching sporadically using the jam charts. I eventually reasoned that the first two were from '95 (+1 extra day) so I should focus my search there and was rewarded.

I'll definitely miss taking part in these (most) every week! Its been fun and as @lysergic said, I'm always getting turned onto new jams through MJM.

Wow. You randomly just started with NYE '94. Bravo and congrats sir.

The way that jam clip sounded, I was thinking it was balls deep in one of those BIG' 94 jams. I actually thought I recognized it from the Hill Aud Simple and went there first. Around the 13'ish minute mark, I heard the part that I was thinking was it but confirmed it was not it.

Per the Hill Aud Simple and the NYE '94 Weekapaug, these 2 jams are a great way to dispell what I'd call "the 2 most common myths of 3.0."

1) They get out into deep territory faster and more efficiently now.
Listen to that NYE '94 Weekapaug. Boy that's a quick leap into some awesome territory!! Been forever since i spun that show, but I've got the rest of the show on the docket for this evening. This Weekapaug covers a hell of a lot of ground in 11-12 minutes.

2) They play as a band together better now than they did in 1.0.
Of course, everyone that has ears knows this is BS, but I see people say it all the time. Sure, it's not said by the smart crowd, but its stated. Listening to that Hill Aud Simple on ear buds, I was blown away by the band interactions, especially around the 13 and 26 minute marks. Woo...what Mike does around the 26 minute mark is so gnarley.

Ha! I knew it I recognized it!! Funny thing is that was the first MMJ clip of a show that I was at which I actually recognized. Maybe one day! I'm honored to have almost been part of hint! I would have never gotten it, though. My ineptitude in these is tremendous! :) Yet, my perseverance is strong.

If you like the 12-31-94 Paug, you should check out the one three days prior. The MJM has a similar sound, but they truly go all over the place with that Paug. The 12-16-95 show has a nice Reba.
