This is Phish on David Letterman in 1994 promoting their new album Hoist. Chalkdust Torture isn’t even on Hoist, and it’s just so Phish to rip an abbreviated and electric version of Chalkdust when it has nothing to do at all with the new album whatsoever. Trey wastes no time with his solo, all it would take is a minute of watching him to understand the level he was on in 1994. The band is firing on all cylinders and the energy is insane, which is hard to achieve on these late night shows as they aren’t really that warmed up and the sound isn’t always that good. Love Page ripping up the grand piano too. So take note thetunesblog fans, this is how you rock out.
