docbh This was my first Phish show. I had convinced my older deadhead cousin to come to this festival with me (didn't have a license yet). I had been well immersed in the music for a long time at this point but he had never heard a note. The whole weekend was an absolute blast. The complete sense of community displayed at Lemmonwheel has been unmatched in my eyes since. No sense in rehashing what the other commentators have already mentioned as far as individual songs. However, I remember feeling really lucky to catch that Sanity at the time, and really this whole second set is one that I return to for a regular listen. My cousin and I wandered off from one another at the start of this show (think the same thing happened on the second day too) but I remember how giddy we both were back at the campgrounds post shows. We did catch the ambient set together relaxing in that beautiful field while the boys played to all of us. 16 years and many many shows later my cousin and I try to catch as many shows together as we can, all the while him thanking me for "dragging" him to Lemmonwheel 16 years ago!
