Are there other epic-length tracks in the Pink Floyd studio canon? Not that I could discover.

Well, I think in "Ummagumma" there are those four live tracks that are kind of "epics" also of course Sysyphus, the Narrow Way & the Grand Viziers Garden Party.

None of those is a (nearly-)sidespanning epic like the four listed here (and four are live recordings of previously released material). I guess my definition of "epic" may be more narrow than some here would use.

I have a softer spot on the less known Atom Heart Mother. Pink Floyd never replayed like that

Well, I think they brought those four pieces really much further in those great live versions than they were in original studio versions...a saucerful is really great also in the studio, but that live anyway differs about it and is as great. Maybe those studio parts are more experimental entities than epics, but I find them also really great (well maybe not Masonīs part, but itīs ok).
