This from wikipedia ... if not familiar with this song it is worth a listen. About as good
a "jam song" as the Stones ever did.

_________________________________________________



"Goin' Home" is a song by rock and roll band the Rolling Stones featured on their 1966 album Aftermath.

Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, "Goin' Home" is long blues-inspired track that is notable as one of the first (if not the first) song by a rock and roll band to break the ten minute mark. While many bands had experimented with length in live performances, and Bob Dylan had written many songs by this point which reached the five/six minute mark, "Goin' Home" was the first "jam" recorded expressly for an album. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Richards said, "It was the first long rock and roll cut. It broke that two minute barrier. We tried to make singles as long as we could do then because we just liked to let things roll on. Dylan was used to building a song for 20 minutes because of the folk thing he came from. That was another thing. No one sat down to make an 11 minute track. I mean 'Goin' Home', the song was written just the first 2 and a half minutes. We just happened to keep the tape rolling, me on guitar, Brian [Jones] on harp, Bill [Wyman] (on bass) and Charlie [Watts] (on drums) and Mick. If there's a piano, it's Stu (Ian Stewart)."[1] Jack Nitzsche, a regular Stones contributor throughout the 1960s, here performs percussion.

The song, while lengthy, is built around a common theme, as opposed to later Stones songs of great length like "Midnight Rambler" or "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" which are divided into distinct sections punctuated by differing instrumentations. "Goin' Home" plays as a long jam, eventually deconstructing Richards' guitar piece, Jagger's lyrics, and the drum lines of Watts which build in power as the song progresses. Jagger's lyrics are called "a basic expression of [his] pining for his girl and determining to go home and get him some. It's the bumpety-bump, ascending chorus of announcing his intentions to go home that's the most 'pop' element of the song."[2]

Spending too much time away, I can't stand another day; Maybe you think I've seen the world, But I'd rather see my girl; I'm goin' home, I'm goin' home, back home
She'll make me feel so good, She'll make me feel all right; She make me feel so good, When she touch my hands; That's all I got to say, Cause I'm going to pack my bags

Released only on Aftermath, "Goin' Home" has been played only during the Stones' 1967 European Tour. This song is what gave The Doors, who were big fans of The Stones' and of the Aftermath album, the idea to elongate the song "The End" from their debut album, The Doors, also an eleven minute song.

I noticed that as well.

I guess all that "prog rock" had some kind of effect, and now Yes fans really DO have "the power".

You guys probably sent each other the coded message by telepathy back about 74 or so...knowing all about the internet before it was invented, of course.

Some of my favorites growing up:

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird (live)
Styx - Suite Madame Blue
Judas Priest - Beyond the Realms of Death
Rolling Stones - Midnight Rambler (live)
Rush - Xanadu
Black Sabbath - Heaven & Hell
UFO - Doctor, Doctor (live)

All a good 6-7 minutes minimum. Not the marathons others have noted, but not typical length for radio tunes.

Solo Concerts: Bremen/Lausanne is a recording released through ECM by jazz pianist Keith Jarrett performing solo improvisations recorded in Bremen and Lausanne in 1973. It is the first of Jarrett's live solo performances to be released on ECM, following his studio-based debut solo recording Facing You (1971), and preceding his record breaking Koln Concert (1975).[1]


[edit] Track listing
"Bremen, Part 1" - 18:05
"Bremen, Part 2" - 45:10
"Lausanne" - 64:53
All compositions by Keith Jarrett
Recorded in concert at Bremen on July 12 and Lausanne on March 20, 1973

I think Keith Jarrett outdid Coltrane. As much as I like out there improv I could never really get into either record

The live Jethro Tull song that takes up one of the four sides on Living In The Past

Macho City, by the Steve Miller Band -- one side of his 1981 Circle of Love album -- Macho City is awesome

Glass Harp Live At Carnegie Hall -- the jam on the second side is some 28 min. long, the title escapes me though!! (same w/that Tull one too -- yet I like getting old )

Anonymous -- the third side of a Very Overlooked (IMO) album, Focus III

The Savoy Brown Boogie -- second side of A Step Further

The long (16 min or so) space jam at the end of Blues For Allah

Nantucket Sleighride -- live version, 2nd side of The Road Goes Ever On -- Mtn. also did a 30 min version of this (two sides) on Twin Peaks

"Tarkus" by ELP -- one side of continuous (w/subtitles I think) & brilliant music -- I love this album

The great 10-min jams by Wishbone Ash, like the live Where Were You Tomorrow (from Pilgrimage), & the awesome second side of their first album, w/Handy, & Phoenix

the long jams on the 3-record Atlanta Pop album, like Mountain's Stormy Monday, Ten Years After's I Can't Keep From Crying (killer 20 min. jams), Miles' Call It Anything etc...
