I've always enjoyed this one, but it won't be to everyone's taste...I bought it on Vinyl when it first came out and now have it on CD as well. Good to chill out to. The track I'd include on this list is about 21mins into this youtube full album clip and is the first track of the second side titled Meditation 1 length 18:42 by Laraaji.

Agree with a few of Ewan Neill's - Nine Feet Underground, a Sailor's Life, and Hamburger Concerto..

I'll add...

Supper's Ready - Genesis

Sloth - Fairport Convention (maybe not quite 10 mins but a clasic)

One of those days in England - Roy Harper

The perfect wish - FruuppThe musical box - Genesis

Dove across the water - Ossian

A bunch of Floyd stuff. Shine On (Pts 1-5) is over 13 minutes if you consider it one song.

Iron Maiden's Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Like Shine On... , Telegraph Road is brilliant and my hairs stand on end when it starts.

Deep Purple's Child In Time is a good un....

Dream Theater's A Change of Seasons. It is 23:06 long. Although, it's on an EP which technically isn't an album Wink but then again the EP is longer than some albums I own!

The reason I first bought a CD player (back in 1985 when you could almost count the rock music cds produced on one hand) was for Brian Eno's Thursday Afternoon - a 60min long track, which was unheard of. I had the stupidly expensive CD player and that one cd to play for ages before the mainstream stuff started to appear. (It's not my favourite though!)

and I love all 11.20 mins of Desolation Row by His Royal Bobness .

Tangerine Dream must take the prize. I remember going to one of their concerts a (long) while back and the whole evening consisted of just two pieces and an encore. I kid you not.

For overlong LPs, I think it would have to be Mike Oldfield's 'Incantations'. Or perhaps it just felt overlong....?

Guns n roses - November rain.
Not as long as some mentioned but you gotta love slash and his guitar riff Wink
