The Best Classic Rock “Long-Songs” Playlist

It's time to travel back in time and recall some of the greatest and longest songs of classic rock. Does quantity equal quality? It sure does with these tracks. If I failed to mention one of your favorites, let us know below. I would have loved to put up the sound files, but that would be a copyright issue. If you are 45 years old and above, these should be in your collection. If you are under 45, well you need to visit iTunes and you will find them all there. Enjoy.
