Many have heard this show, thanks to the LivePhish release. I was so happy they put out a soundboard of this one. After the Murat this is a close second for my favorite show I've attended. The lawn was empty, the pavilion was half full at best. I was there with many friends and we got booted from hanging and drinking by the car from some of Tinley Park's finest.
The first set from this show seemed very standard at the time. "Chalk Dust" opener, "Guelah Papyrus", "The Horse" > "Silent", a great "Esther" and a set closing "Cavern". Then Set 2, though: whoa! A first time (for me) "2001" (which rocked my socks off!) To quote Comic Book Guy: "Best `Antelope' Ever". This started off standard but led to "Sparks" (I am a huge Who fan, so I was freakin') > "Walk Away" > "Have Mercy" > "Antelope"- You have all heard it... so sick live!
At this time I wasn't into checking Phish's setlists so I really had no idea some of the songs they had been playing, which was nice for "Purple Rain" as it seemed like such a far out surprise for everyone. After the encore of "La Grange", which was my hometown at the time, I really felt this had been a special show. Top notch all the way!
