Most of my favourites have already been mentioned but I'd like to add:

Devil Doll - Mr Doctor
Tangerine Dream - Phaedra
Klaus Schulze - Totem
Fireballet - Night on Bald Mountain
Twelfth Night - The Collector
Frank Zappa - The Adventures of Greggary Peccary

I'm using the chicken to measure it.

^Hell yeah, I love TotemClap

Oh and I thought of a real humdinger. For some reason the Gracious album always keeps beneath the radar. I'm not sure why that is. It seems to me, that this opening track should have the prog crowd spraying their pants with pure unadulterated exuberance:

(note to self: remember to review album)

Gonna go with THOR by KLAUS SCHULTZE.
Last track of the KONTINUUM album. Love the epic thunder ambience in that track.

Good call.  Super Nova explores many great musical interludes...

I'm very pleased to see four pages worth of discussion. Big smile I haven't been bored in the slightest looking up anyone's suggestions!

From my personal collection, here are some suggestions of my own that I don't recall seeing mentioned yet (sorry if they have been suggested already and I just missed them!)

-"A Suite for the Everyman" Echolyn
-"Bema pamięci żałobny rapsod" Czesław Niemen
-"Send a Message from the Heart" Karmakanic
-"All the Seats Were Occupied" Aphrodite's Child
-"Forgotten Sons" Marillion (one of the absolute shortest songs you'd hear me ramble on about)
-"Post-War, Saturday Echo" Quatermass
-"Shadow of the Hierophant" Steve Hackett

... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

Enjoying Saviour Machine's The Revelation. Their longest epic at 21min.
Such a character song. Really defined their beginning or inception into the Prog world.

Listen to this and tell me Colour Haze isn't one of the best psychedelic spacerock bands of this generation.
