    My three favorites:

    The Marshall Tucker Band, 'Long Hard Ride'



    And, of course, EC, Mayall and the Blues Breakers



    Probably lesser known from the same great album, 'Steppin' Out.'

    Vai's For The Love Of God:


    and

    Strauss' Tod und Verklarung (Death and Transfiguration)


    Two of the most powerful and moving instrumentals I've ever heard!

    The tone poem (below)that accompanies Tod und Verklarung will paint a picture of what is going on with each section of the movement if you aren't able to get it just from listening. It's awesome, powerful stuff!

    I may be the only person on the planet, but I've always liked Foreigner's "Tramontane" on Double Vision....
