"Starless" by King Crimson (the instrumental buildup in that song is nothing short of breathtaking)....which barely beats out "When The Music's Over" by The Doors by the slimest of margins.

Loggins & Messina, Deodato, CCR. Deodato was the 2001 Space Odyssey theme; Creedence Born on the Bayou in the long version had to be close to ten minutes; Loggins & Messina I can't remember the title of the song.

Closer To Home by Grand Funk.

NIT PICK ALERT

It really didn't sound right to me, so I checked it out. Closer To Home, while a great song and all, is not 10 minutes long. It's close, very close, but still under the mark.

Just thought I'd point it out before someone else did it in a far less diplomatic fashion...your thread, your rules, carry on :approve:

Yeah you're right .... I thought I'd try to slip it by. Actually, on FM radio it was treated as TWO SONGS, "I'm Your Captain," and "Closer to Home." Both 4:30 - 5:00 versions got alotta play ;D

Jungleland is like 9:33 too ... it's not easy getting 10. I thought the full length "Whiter Shade of Pale" might've made it, but when I looked it was barely eight minutes.

NIT PICK ALERT (of my own)

Allman Brothers LIVE songs don't count ... in the studio, 'Whipping Post' was just 5:47, 'In Memory of Elizabeth Reed' 6:54, 'Jessica' 7:05 and 'Dreams' 7:18. They each topped 10 minues on one or another of their live albums, but that's not the point.

As long as they were on official live releases and not bootlegs...why not?

Live albums stand in band's catalogs just as much as studio releases, don't they? If a few minutes of jamming or noodling on the live disc puts it over the ten minute mark, why wouldn't it count?

Okay, so given this, I revisited Grand Funk Railroad's Closer To Home by thumbing thru it's live versions of the song and found something pretty interesting....the live versions are all much shorter (save for the reunion set Bosina and even there, it's short by a minute)...in some cases, as much as four minutes shorter (The 1971 Tour).

That's really odd considering that the norm during a live set (especially in the 1970's) is to flesh out songs via jamming, solos and whatnot. You'd think they could ride that outro forever if they chose to but it appears they never did.....well, on recorded disc anyways.

Okay, so music is a passion of mine. I like all types of music (except country and opera). I have approximately 2000 CD’s and somewhere around 4000 MP3 CD’s. Currently, I have 28,650 songs in my ITunes library.

I really love music!

Here are a few of my favorite songs, which clock in at over ten minutes.

Windy & Carl – Antarctica (22:06) (Pure bliss)
http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/record_review/23201-antarctica

NOFX – The Decline (18:22)

The Damned – Curtain Call (17:14)

Dandy Warhol’s – A Loan Tonight (11:49) (I love these guys!)

Now I love The Damned...they're one of my all time faves. That said, I can be objective about them and when it comes to this....well, I haven't heard anything more awkward and clumsy since the title track to The Soft Parade. It was an admirable effort, especially for them, but it's far from the best of anything.

There was a fantastic radio station in Cal back in the day called KPPC. it was one of the first of what were known as "underground" radio stations, when there was actually a huge difference between AM and FM. They operated out of some basement in Pasadena. Anyway, that's where I heard the first songs longer than the two minute industry "package." I actually remember the evening I was lying in bed and the DJ at KPPC said he was going to play an 11 minute song. It was "Goin' Home" by The Rolling Stones." I still love that one. Dylan also wrote "Like a Rolling Stone" to go more than ten minutes, but the industry weasels cut in half. "Desolation Row" also went ten minutes.

I remember there was this long jam by Poco that I really liked, before they went all sappy. It had a nice conga jam in it, but I don't remember the name of it.

In the radio business, we called 5+ minute songs "bathroom cuts" because they allowed the disc jockey time to go to the bathroom and get back before the song finished.

"Hey Jude" was one of the first celebrated "bathroom cuts" as was the original "MacArthur's Park".

I can respect that. "Curtain Call" certainly is different, even for The Damned. A bit bloated perhaps.

I actually found a live version of "Curtain Call" on YouTube:

My favorite Damned song has to be "In Dulce Decorum" with "I feel alright" coming in at a closed second, but then that's getting a bit off topic....

Here are a few more songs that come in over the ten minute mark. Sorry if they were already listed:

David Bowie - Station To Station

Station To Station is not one I expected to see mentioned. That is a great selection and better by not being the usual you'd think you would see.

Marquee Moon is wonderful as well. I'm really surprised that more guitar geeks are not into Television...Verlaine & Lloyd were always great players that avoided unnecessary flash with their playing....and that's probably why they're not as celebrated as the Eddie Van Halens of the world.

I was never much into Sonic Youth, so I'll pass on that.

Just thought I'd point it out before someone else did it in a far less diplomatic fashion...your thread, your rules, carry on :approve:Your probably right on the original or one of the following releases.

I love Zep's Achilles last stand but Buff beat me to it.

glad to see someone mention genesis, though i would pick very different songs.
-i'd go with "stagnation" (teased during their most recent tour at the end of "i know what i like"!!!) and "the knife" from "trespass" (yes, both are under 10 mins. but theyre also both about 9 mins long which puts them in the long song category)

-"the musical box" from "nursery cryme" (was played instrumental during most recent tour)

-"suppers ready" from "horizons" (22 minutes of genesis at their finest!!)

-"firth of fifth" (played instrumental during most recent tour) and "cinema show" (also played as part of an instrumental medley during last tour) from "selling england by the pound"

- i agree completely on "in the cage", which was played in its entirety on the last tour.

- "ripples" from "trick of the tail", which was probably the highlight of the show and tour. just a beautiful song, and the 1st time its been played since that tour. when the boys said this tour was for their longtime fans, they meant it.

- "one for the vine" from "wind and wuthering" ("afterglow" was played and was as sweet as ever)

- i agree on the "duke" suite, which is well over 10 mins when played in its entirety.

- "home by the sea" from the self titled album and "domino" from "invisible touch" are both good long songs, but severely lacking (IMO) compared to the earlier works, all of which (except the "duke" suite) had hackett on lead guitar.

glad to see someone mention genesis, though i would pick very different songs.
-i'd go with "stagnation" (teased during their most recent tour at the end of "i know what i like"!!!) and "the knife" from "trespass" (yes, both are under 10 mins. but theyre also both about 9 mins long which puts them in the long song category)

-"the musical box" from "nursery cryme" (was played instrumental during most recent tour)

-"suppers ready" from "horizons" (22 minutes of genesis at their finest!!)

-"firth of fifth" (played instrumental during most recent tour) and "cinema show" (also played as part of an instrumental medley during last tour) from "selling england by the pound"

- i agree completely on "in the cage", which was played in its entirety on the last tour.

- "ripples" from "trick of the tail", which was probably the highlight of the show and tour. just a beautiful song, and the 1st time its been played since that tour. when the boys said this tour was for their longtime fans, they meant it.

- "one for the vine" from "wind and wuthering" ("afterglow" was played and was as sweet as ever)

- "home by the sea" from the self titled album and "domino" from "invisible touch" are both good long songs, but severely lacking (IMO) compared to the earlier works, all of which (except the "duke" suite) had hackett on lead guitar.

The only Album I listen to pre- "then there were 3" is Lamb lies Down and even then I only listen to the 1st cd (2 albums) I have all the albums you listed but they don't do it for me.

I like snowblind from And then there were 3, it is a solid album album all around but I grew up on Duke/abacab/Genesis in HS.

I also love Peter Gabriel's stuff but his songs wern't as epic as the genesis stuff, though San josento (s/p) is a great song but not near 10min. Phill has some nice instrumentals in his early stuff, probably to eat up time but I prefer the stuff I listed....

Speaking of The Doors, doesn't "The End" stretch out beyond 10 minutes.

It's 11 minutes and something.

There was also a band "Gentle Giant" who had a few "long songs". I used to go to their concerts back in the mid seventies in Europe. Kinda ELP sound.
I'll try to find info.

Holy Christ.....never, ever would I have expected Gentle Giant to ever be mentioned on here in any manner, shape or form. I actually have some of this stuff and believe me....it's not for the faint of heart. Even hardcore progressive guys have a hard time with this band. In case you don't know them (and, outside of Nut here, you probably don't) they specialized in doing for Middle Ages minstral type music what ELP did for classical music....mainly hook it up to the wattage of the modern age and try to play it as fast as they could. I have the "Official Live" album and there's only one humane song on the entire double set....."Funny Ways", the only song that doesn't veer off into backing music for Robin Hood done on acid.

Nut has my infinte respect to actually deal with this stuff in a kind manner...I don't think even LABF and all his studio tech savvy could deal with this for very long. :notworthy

Peter Frampton defines suckitude.

:unamused:

Talk about an ignorant statement and an immature attitude.

Peter Frampton is a very accomplished guitar player and musician.

Just because you don't care for the kind of music he plays doesn't mean he "sucks."

I can't stand country music, but only a complete musical ignoramus would say that Roy Clark, Jerry Reed, or Brent Mason "suck."

Didn't Wakeman do a musical version of War of the Worlds with the Moody Blues? Richard Burton narrated it, IIRC.Jeff Wayne...

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Released 40 years after Orson Welles' infamous radio version of the H.G. Wells tale, Jeff Wayne's musical version of War of the Worlds straddles old-style radio drama and contemporary orchestrated narratives by Rick Wakeman and David Bedford. And while it lacks the sophisticated arrangements of, say, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, it does boast an impressively odd cast -- this may be the only time that a member of Thin Lizzy worked with Richard Burton, and the presence of Julie Covington and the Moody Blues' Justin Hayward in very attractive singing roles attest to its pop/rock aspirations.

It's Burton's sonorous tones that sustain this work; his frequent solo narrations are eminently listenable, whereas sections featuring dialogue with other characters often come off as a bit stilted. The music is competent studio rock, and "Horsell Common and the Heat Ray" does strike just the right balance between Burton's narration and an accompaniment built around a buzzsaw guitar riff. Overall, it's pleasant as a period piece, and still a fine way to introduce younger listeners to Wells' classic tale.

(And if you can find it in a vinyl, it comes with a nicely produced narrative booklet with gloriously lurid illustrations by Geoff Taylor.) The album was actually appealing on too many fronts for its own good in many ways -- the Justin Hayward-sung ballad "Forever Autumn," extracted from a much longer piece on the double-LP -- showed some signs of appealing to AM radio listeners and climbed to the Top 40 based on airplay alone, but by the time Columbia Records in America (missing this boat entirely) got copies of the single into stores so that people could actually buy the record, the song had dropped back down; in the meantime, the record became a favorite of discos and dance clubs in New York and elsewhere, where its extended, highly rhythmic, synthesizer-driven sections delighted deejays and audiences, and Columbia missed another bet by not releasing an instrumental-only assembly of those long passages. (In New York, for years after it went out of print on vinyl, the album was sought after by club deejays eager to spin it). ~ Paul Collins and Bruce Eder, All Music Guide (http://www.artistdirect.com/nad/store/artist/album/0,,199044,00.html)

Simply indicating that you don't enjoy a particular song, band, style, or whatever is not snobbery - it's just a statement about your personal likes and dislikes, and no one can argue with that.

However, when you say something "sucks" or is "musical bullshat" then you are engaging in snobbery.

And "excess" is all in the ear of the beholder, too.

The statement about "excess" reminds me of that classic line in "Amadeus" where the king complains that Mozart's latest piece contains "too many notes" and Mozart's response is "which notes would you have me remove, your majesty?" or words to that effect.

I guess the gist is that listening to someone who isn't a musician trying to tell an accomplished musician how he should be doing his sh*t is sort of hard to take.

I wasn't sure.

I guess that was my assumption since most of your musical takes I've read sound like they are coming more from a fan's perspective than from someone with a musical background or formal musical knowledge (which isn't to say the two are mutually exclusive.) Most of the really talented or accomplished musicians I know are also humble in their attitudes toward music (based on the principle that, where music is concerned, the more you learn, the more you realize how much you don't know.)

At any rate, I know I wouldn't feel justified in calling someone else's music "bullsh*t" unless I could actually pick up an instrument, (or a piece of staff paper) perform the piece in question, and make a case for how it could be improved (and even then I wouldn't say someone's music "sucked" because I know what it's like to put your sweat and your heart and soul into a piece of music.)

I disagree.

When you say "I don't care for that music" you are simply making a statement about your own personal preferences or tastes. You have not attacked anyone, and no one can deny you your right to like what you like.

However, when you start saying something "sucks" or that something is too much of this and not enough of that, then you are basically saying "there's a committee that decides what's good and what's bad, and I'm the head." It's a position of arrogance and intolerance.

It's a position of critical thinking....you have obivously never done any review work in your time. Since I have, I freely admit that that is where my approach comes from....I make no apologies for it.

So yeah, whilst my own rudimentary musician skills will never be able to equal the playing of say a Keith Emerson, I don't really have to either to know Emerson's playing is nothing but pompus, self-indulgent flash complete with mid-air summersaults and knives to stab the organ for effect.....or in layman's terms...it sucks.

And if anyone doesn't like that analysis...they can make things interesting and tell me something that could possibly validate Mr. Emerson's excesses to me or they can just sit back and whine about how intolerant and arrogant I am because I stated my negative opinion of his work in no uncertain terms.
I really don't care to be honest about it all, although it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the former is a lot more productive and thought provoking than the latter approach.

You're right: I'm coming from the perspective of a musician - not a critic.

Most music critics I know are frustrated musicians and/or people who, despite their self-important judgments on the creativity of others, couldn't play a C Major scale if you put a gun to their heads.

So yeah, whilst my own rudimentary musician skills will never be able to equal the playing of say a Keith Emerson, I don't really have to either to know Emerson's playing is nothing but pompus, self-indulgent flash complete with mid-air summersaults and knives to stab the organ for effect.....or in layman's terms...it sucks.

Your characterization of Emmerson's playing (I'm not a fan either, BTW) is not some sort of objective musical "fact" or absolute (there is no such thing when you're talking about art appreciation.)

It's really more of a statement about fashion, popularity and trends than anything else.

It's the specious idea that some consensus view of what is or isn't "excessive" or "pompous" is objective fact.

And if anyone doesn't like that analysis...they can make things interesting and tell me something that could possibly validate Mr. Emerson's excesses to me or they can just sit back and whine about how intolerant and arrogant I am because I stated my negative opinion of his work in no uncertain terms. I really don't care to be honest about it all, although it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the former is a lot more productive and thought provoking than the latter approach.

You are starting with a foregone conclusion here, i.e., that something or other is "excessive" about Emmerson's music.

You haven't really defined, in musical terms, exactly what is "excessive" about his music.

But, rest assured, any definition you come up with is just going to be a statement of your personal opinion and tastes - not some objective fact.

Like I said before, your argument reminds me of that scene in "Amadeus" where the king complains that Mozart's latest opera contains too many notes, and Mozart's answer is "which notes would you have me remove, your majesty?"

That says it all.

Good post LABF.

Your comment about fashion is right on. When considering marketablility and the general direction of a production, you consider where you place yourself in light of the prospection of fashions. You consciously throw a hook out for the critics in your sort of trot line of hooks, hoping to reel some of them in...hoping that they see the art behind the fashion. It is rare that they ever see past guitar tones and vocal timbre.

Edit: to rule on fashion alone is not to criticize music, it is to criticize the culture of eras. Those that are remembered are the ones that define the culture of eras. In todays terms that means that certain musicians or bands toil away in obscurity waiting for someone to rip off their style and translate it into modern fashion, whether you care for modern fashion or not.

Agree 100%

It's almost blasphemy in some guitar circles to regard Hendrix as anything less than a minor deity. I'm not knocking him or saying he wasn't a great or important player, but you're right - there were a lot of other rock guitarists of his era who could play him under the table, e.g., Alvin Lee, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, et al. The first Led Zeppelin record was released when Hendrix was still active, and some of the playing on that record just smokes anything Hendrix ever did, IMO.

Anyone compare Hendrix's choice of chords to what Lee or Page used?

Hendrix may not have flown through Pentatonic scales (which are easy) like Page or pick like Lee but his choice of chords (Purple Haze) and voicings (Wind Cries Mary) are amazing.

I love Page and am recently have been checking Lee out but Hendrix was a guitar god and real musician. No mistake.

The whole Page vs Hendrix debate has been going on for years. My take is that it is just a preference. I think Hendrix in many ways revolutionized the way a guitar was played, and really was possibly the greatest showman on guitar ever.

OTOH, Page had a style that I don't see mimicked much, if at all. He was a musical genius and was executive producer of most LZ's albums. One thing that can't be debated though is that Page had much better material and a HOF surrounding cast than did Hendrix.

I would point to the live version of Since I've Been Loving You as an exhibit of Pages genius, as you will literally take a trip w/o the acid. :peace: But it comes in at just under 10 mins. so for this thread I give you this:

Excellent version of that great tune!!

Ok, well since you agree with me on the song and you're the OP, then I will cheat a bit on this thread and give you a real treat; it clocks in at over 9 mins.

Every time I hear this song, I want to shoot heroin(metaphorically). This version includes the scene where Plant & the late Peter Grant are talking about the song back-stage(two other geniuses, imho). Enjoy:
