I have been wondering if there were any other songs like Lady Fantasy(You know the Camel song). It was one of the best things I ever heard the first time I heard it. 12 minutes, a song about a lady, and those fantastic solos.

There are no songs that I can think of like Lady Fantasy.

Not saying they are the same, but these might have appeal to someone into Lady Fantasy and Camel.

Do you mean a long song with quieter first half and singing, followed extended rocking part and solos?

Free Bird?  HAHAHAHHA

Quote 12 minutes, a song about a lady, and those fantastic solos

Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven (TSRtS version) checks those boxes.

There is already a good guitar solo that is better than Freebird. It's name is Ice. There is also Firth of Fifth and Comfortably Numb with those lengthy and slow melodic solos. I Cee Your House From Here. Actually, maybe Ice means "From Survival To Ice". ICSYHFH could have been a concept album. Him to Her.

Well there is a lady who's sure that all the glitters are gold and she is buying that titular stairway. Both songs also have a simple chord melody along with easy to play, but awesome solos at the end of them. I do not think difficulty matters, if somebody played the Lady Fantasy keyboard solo, then it probably would not sound as good as Peter's solo since Peter had heart in making the solo, while the player is really just playing the notes. I mean you can make your own solo for Lady Fantasy following the chord structure, that is what the keyboardists live would do with it.

Starship Trooper

Seriously. I refer to Lady Fantasy as a poor man's Starship Trooper. Other than that I'm not sure.
