Here's my go-

'Liberation' by Chicago on the Chicago Transit Authority is a 15 minute piece glorifying each instrument, moving from a quick intro including all to a 9 minute guitar solo (argueably one of the best EVER), then to the horns, then bass, then horns, quick vocals, and return to all. INCREDIBLE piece.

Another stunning solo is the live version of 'Comfortably Numb.' I know, I know, the studio version is good, but Gilmour's killer Fender Telecaster from the 'Is There Anybody Out There? 1980-81' live album kicks the shit out of the it. The tone it produces is one of the most powerful and ferocious noises I've ever heard.

Gimour did his best studio work on the 17 minute title track for Supertramp's 'Brother Where You Bound,' where he took the place of former bandmate Rodger Hodgson. WOW is all I can say.

Also give the live version of 'Dazed And Confused' from 'How The West Was Won' by Led Zeppelin. It's basically 25 minutes of Jimmy page doing orgasmic and eerie guitar and mandolin work.
