Welcome to the 415th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first and easiest of May. 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 song and date of the mystery clip. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours after I've posted the new clip, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at
10 AM PT / 1 PM ET 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET. Good luck, and May the Fourth be with you!
*Reminder: For the first MJM of each month, only folks who have never won an MJM are allowed to answer before the hint. If you have never won an MJM, please answer as a blog comment below. If you have previously won an MJM, but you'd like to submit a guess before the hint, you may do so by PMing me; once the hint has been posted, everyone should answer on the blog. If that's confusing to you, check out the handy decision tree that I threw together for you. If you're not sure if you've won before, check in the MJM Results spreadsheet linked below.
Note: This is a new clip as the original clip was answered by a previous winner. Friendly reminder to read the post each week, as there are always hidden links, sometimes rules changes, and occasionally hints embedded in the text.
Answer: Congrats to @Scottdrum on his first MJM win! The first clip was the glorious 12/29/99 soundcheck jam, but its replacement was the 10/26/96 "Simple" - '96 wasn't a peak year for the band by any stretch, but "Mike's Song" and "Simple" got some nice work-outs that are worth your time. MJM416 drops Monday - stay safe everyone!

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 just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
