Last week, we reported on a series of isolated tracks showing off the handiwork of Phish as they performed “Down With Disease” live in Hershey, Pennsylvania on December 1, 1995. Today, another set of Phish isolated tracks have surfaced featuring a live performance of “Chalk Dust Torture” from November 16, 1994 in Ann Arbor.

These isolated tracks come from a Phish “Live Track Pack” for the video game Guitar Hero World Tour released in 2009 that included versions of “Sample in a Jar” from Salem, Oregon in 1994, “Down with Disease” from Hershey, Pennsylvania in 1995 and “Chalk Dust Torture” from Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1994. YouTuber Tyler Penn, who posted the “Down With Disease” isolated tracks, has now shared six “Chalk Dust Torture” isolated tracks.

The isolated tracks are a great resource for musicians trying to learn the parts or fans interested in studying what each band member is doing as the quartet rages through “Chalk Dust.” Let’s start with a track highlighting keyboardist Page McConnell’s work:
