Relive the Massive Phish Randall’s Island “Chalk Dust Torture” from 2014

On the final night of the Randall’s Island run that Phish delivered back in 2014, they kicked off the second set with a massive “Chalk Dust Torture” that really sent everyone into the ethers. 28 minutes, breh.

Phish released it officially on their YouTube channel soon after the show, which you can watch below…

Phish - 7/13/14 "Chalk Dust Torture"

Just a wild version as ever, truly Type II sounds that I’ve never heard come from the band before, and at the time I was mostly speechless and really only had this to say.

Must-listen Type II jam. Featured a Mike’s Song peak section and ultimately unfinished after 28 minutes.

Our friend LazyLightning has a version of this up on his YouTube channel fully worthy of a full re-watch today. He says that it’s “essentially a short film (28mins) with a few little stories throughout” so he made it look cool and black and white in spots, like a film. You can check that version if you prefer it as well.
