Happy "Tour Opener Week", and welcome to Phish.net's Mystery Jam Monday Part 150! As we did when MJM hit the century mark, the winner will be awarded with one MP3 download courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net, along with a "Famous Mockingbird" pin designed by AJ Masthay in the color of your choice (silver or gold).
Regarding the Mystery Jam itself, as with MJM #100 and the Hampton/Winston-Salem MJ, this clip has multiple songs on it that you'll need to identify. Therefore, we will not be using the comments to guess this week. Instead, send your SINGLE guess to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, you can post those in the comments section. The first person to correctly identify the song and the date of each jam will be the winner. One guess per person per day, with the second "day" starting after I post the hint. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, and the answer will be posted on Wednesday. In the event that no one guesses all of the Mystery Jams, the winner will be selected by the Blog at its sole discretion. To start you off with a little help, here's a spreadsheet with the all-time MJM results. Note the number of blank slots for this week's contest, and be assured that each of this week's jams has not been used previously. Good luck!
Tuesday Update: Since no one's submitted an email that includes a guess for all included jams, the hint will be posted at noon ET on Wednesday. You will have until then to submit your first batch of guesses.
Wednesday Hint (note the answer will be posted Friday morning): The years of the seven jams in the clip — in chronological order (these are not necessarily in the order they are played in the clip) — are 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2003, 2009, and 2010. One jam is from a song that is almost never a jam vehicle. Two jams were played in venues owned by or located on college campuses. Three jams were in venues last played in "1.0". Four jams were played in the second half of the year. Five jams were played in the Eastern Time Zone. Six jams were played indoors. All seven jams were played at Phish shows.
Answer: Seven mystery jams was admittedly a tall order, but the Blog pulls out the victory! By IDing four of the seven (#1, 4, 6 & 7), @ucpete had the most accurate entry and is also a winner, as he'll receive the MP3 DL and Masthay pin -- great job! The results sheet now contains all seven answers. MJM returns on Monday.
