Niiice, thx for the Chambers Brothers rec ...I knew "The Time Has Come Today" but had never heard the album version. Also...

"In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" (Full-Length ver; 17:04) — Iron Butterfly (I triple dog dare KEXP to play this)
"The End" (11:43) — The Doors (one of the greatest first albums of all time)
"Light My Fire" (7:08) — The Doors (still epic after all these years)
"Take a Pebble" (12:32) — Emerson, Lake & Palmer (a bit indulgent as all prog rock is, but still great fun)

And if we're talking jazz (seems we are)...

"Peace One" (7:18) — Mahavishnu John McLaughlin (classic droning stoner tune)

The Grateful Dead sneer at your notion of "long songs."
