Hi Guys,

I suppose if you include concept albums like Fates Warning's Pleasant Shade.... then there will be many. In the old days when vinyl albums were about 45 mins maximum many artists did songs that were a whole side but usually weren't more than 25 mins. ELP's Karn Evil 9 was half of side one and all of side 2 and clocks in around the half hour mark. Todd Rundgren did a couple of notable things and was even making albums that lasted over an hour back in the seventies. The Ikon from Todd Rudgren's Utopia is one song that clocks in at 30:22, while A Treatise On Cosmic Fire from side 2 of 1975's Initiation clocks in at a massive 36:00 exactly.
My favourite one at the moment is Transatlantic's 30:59 opus, All Of The Above.

Take care,
Phil
