The JB List | Ten Amazing Isolated Classic Rock Tracks

5. Boston - Longtime Vocals

Peabody, MA native Brad Delp shows off the range of his incomparable voice in this clip from the backend of "Foreplay" > "Longtime."

6. Smashing Pumpkins - Cherub Rock Drums

From the bass/snare combo that kicks off the song, drummer Jimmy Chamberlain's hard-and- heavy work is at the heart of Smashing Pumpkins' 1993 hit.

7. Rush - YYZ Bass

This instrumental has been a live staple for Rush ever since it appeared on Moving Pictures in 1981. The band incorporated morse code for "Y-Y-Z" into the intro of the song as a hat tip to their beloved Toronto (whose Pearson International Airport utilizes YYZ as its IATA code).

8. Steely Dan - Bodhisattva Guitars

There's no info attached to this clip, so we're unsure if it's Jeff "Skunk" Baxter and Denny Dias's handiwork from the Countdown To Ecstasy track or just a really good simulation. Either way, it's great to hear the dual lead guitars isolated.
