Arvo Part, Passio. 75min. Topical too, with Easter coming up.
I used to own a copy of The Texas Jerusalem Crossroads album by a band called Lift To Experience. Bought it off the back of a 5 star review in Uncut, album of the month, decent track on that months free CD etc. The last track, Into The Storm, goes on for over 28 mins, most of which is complete silence.
Absolute utter bilge. Got rid of it shortly afterwards, though I did rip a copy for posterity.

KLF Space 38:21 it actually appears as a single track on the CD. I have to say I prefer Chill Out (44:19) but it is broken into different tracks albeit it flows continuously. Epic!

Well it's in with my music collection even though it's an audiobook. Ayn Rand - Atlas Shrugged Part 4 is 11 hours, 44 minutes and 4 seconds (from torrent, don't know length of files as originally released).
Parts 1,2 and 3 all weigh in at over 11 hours and 20 minutes whilst part 5 is a comparatively diminutive 7 hours, 8 minutes and 54 seconds.
My longest music file is a recording of a Nickel Creek gig at 1 hour, 56 minutes and 59 seconds.
Longest single track is Fela Kuti - Coffin For Head of State (parts 1 and 2) from the Coffin for Head of State CD which runs to 31 minutes and 9 seconds. It is a single track on a CD which contains 2 tracks
