Long Johns: The best music to breach the 10-min barrier

A Listmania! list by Patrick Neylan "Patrick Neylan" (Orpington, Kent, UK)
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
 
Meddle
1.  Meddle by Pink Floyd
The list author says:
  "Echoes (23.28min): Pink Floyd's archetype, full of psychological soundscapes; utterly laid back and dreamy."
£18.44   Used & New from: £4.39
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (139 customer reviews)

Dandys Rule OK
2.  Dandys Rule OK by Dandy Warhols
The list author says:
  "It's a Fast-Driving Rave-Up With the Dandy Warhols Sixteen Minutes (21.52min; the intro and outro give it the brutal extra 6). Totally unlike Echoes. Heavy, compulsive, repetitive, idiotic, wonderful."
£5.40   Used & New from: £0.34
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

In Concert 1970-1972
3.  In Concert 1970-1972 by Deep Purple
The list author says:
  "Space Truckin live (21.46min): Pure sex: an impro intro, then the formal bit before lurching into an urgent organ solo, then a wild, thrashing guitar cacophony ending in a sweaty and energetic climax."
£4.99   Used & New from: £4.98
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Future Days (Remastered Sacd/CD Hybrid)
4.  Future Days (Remastered Sacd/CD Hybrid) by Can
The list author says:
  "Bel Air (19.53min): as dreamy and floaty as Echoes, but with the rhythmic discipline of the Krautrock masters. Proggy yet funky; smooth and easy; deleriously magnificent."
£25.29   Used & New from: £5.99
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Alice's Restaurant
5.  Alice's Restaurant by Arlo Guthrie
The list author says:
  "Alice's Restaurant Massacree (18.34min): Arlo Guthrie's hilarious folk protest about Vietnam is less a song; more like political standup with guitar."
£8.78   Used & New from: £4.38
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

Tago Mago
6.  Tago Mago by Can
The list author says:
  "Halleluhwah (18.32min): Yes, it's Can again. This time the trippy trance that influenced 80s/90s electropop is harder, compulsive and difficult. A remorseless groove for truly hardboiled musos."
£49.51   Used & New from: £6.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (38 customer reviews)

Wish You Were Here
7.  Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd
The list author says:
  "Shine On You Crazy Diamond (13.36min - 26 if you count parts 6-9): Pink Floyd's homage to Syd Barrett, driven by sax and organ, is an ethereal masterpiece."
£13.99   Used & New from: £1.48
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (456 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Red, 30th Anniversary Edition
8.  Red, 30th Anniversary Edition by King Crimson
The list author says:
  "Starless (12.16min) The coda from King Crimson's 'Red'; the last prog album; a melancholic fin de siècle piece building into a sinister bassy, jazzy groove, showing that prog can also be minimalistic."
£8.49   Used & New from: £6.67
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (91 customer reviews)

The Doors [Expanded] [40th Anniversary Mixes]
9.  The Doors [Expanded] [40th Anniversary Mixes] by The Doors
The list author says:
  "The End (11.42min): The grandaddy of them all. It's 1967 and The Doors show how rock could break its 4-minute straitjacket with this apocalyptic alternative to the Summer of Love."
£7.99   Used & New from: £2.50
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (95 customer reviews)

A Farewell To Kings
10.  A Farewell To Kings by Rush
The list author says:
  "Xanadu (11.11min): Canadian post-prog masters Rush take fanstasy rock to its glorious limit. Proficiency and complexity meet ambition and energy."
£5.80   Used & New from: £1.84
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

Sarabande
11.  Sarabande by Jon Lord
The list author says:
  "Bourée (11.07min: Deep Purple's keyboard maestro mixes rock with baroque, blending bongo rhythms with eastern melodies. 70s rock fusion anticipates World Music. Great fun for musicolgists."
£16.70   Used & New from: £11.98
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Physical Graffiti
12.  Physical Graffiti by Led Zeppelin
The list author says:
  "In My Time of Dying (11.05min): Led Zeppelin take a blues favourite (heard on Dylan's debut in 1960) and give it the heavy rock treatment. Slide guitar with glorious intensity."
£8.99   Used & New from: £3.59
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (283 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Fragile [Expanded & Remastered]
13.  Fragile [Expanded & Remastered] by Yes
The list author says:
  "Heart of the Sunrise (10.34min):  Progtastic! Yes give you driving rock energy, startling musical proficiency while doing impossible things with time signatures. A validation of the progressive genre."
£6.99   Used & New from: £4.39
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (73 customer reviews)
