Welcome to the 221st edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday. I've posted three clips this week -- these three clips share something in common. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three mystery jam clips, and answer what the three clips share in common. Each person gets one guess per day, with the second “day” starting after I post the hint -- each guess should contain three songs / dates, and a guess at the commonality. No sharing or trading of answers is allowed. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answer to follow on Wednesday. The winner will receive an MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck!
Answer: For only the 15th time in 221 MJMs (6.8% W%), the Blog wins!
The Blog's record has now improved to 15 wins, 179 outright losses, and 26 hint-aided losses (plus the voided MJM 214). The guessing crew was on the right track, but ultimately fell short. The picture of the Lidocaine ointment was a nod to the topical nature of this week's MJM -- note that it says "For Topical Use Only" on the label. The topic itself is Mr. Rogers Nelson, also known as Prince Rogers Nelson; this week's jams were played at shows during which Phish covered The Purple One: 12/31/98 Antelope ("1999"), 12/30/94 Tweezer ("Purple Rain"), and 8/28/93 Stash ("Purple Rain"). Come back next week for MJM 222, where we'll play for two download codes.
