I've recently done an edit of Peter Gabriel's "Not One of Us" - partly to make it fit the credits on my "The Hidden" edit, partly to make it slightly less trippy and just tighten up the structure. 

Being a listener of progressive rock, it's not uncommon to come across a 30 minute epic that's a little too indulgent. I've often thought of editing some down, but not gotten around to it yet. 

I know that there are a few fan-edits of Yes' Topographic Oceans on YouTube, though none really did it for me. Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree, who remixes a lot of classic albums, did his own cut of that album as well.

As far as I know, there isn’t a version of the Beatles song Let It Be that does away with the Phil Spector wall of sound production like on the Naked album, but still retains the grittier guitar solo featured on the Let It Be album.

I’d like to see a trimmed version of Pink Floyd’s Echoes. I love the song but there is too much of the out there stuff in there for me to put it on on the regular at 23:31.

I’d like to see a version that runs, say 7-8 minutes. There definitely seems to be attempts that I’ll check. Not sure if there was ever anything official.

I've done some for incubus songs years ago. It's mostly to remove some content, but others are to shorten up songs or remove some musical bits that I didn't care for. Some songs I've messed with:
Make Yourself
Nowhere Fast
The Warmth
While All the Vultures Feed
A Midnight Swim
Pendulous Threads
Light Grenades
Megalomaniac
Also did some Third Eye Blind songs to shorten them up and remove portions of songs that I didn't care for. Red Summer Son is one of my favorite by then, but the screaming portion just sounds terrible vocally and musically so I removed it. I'll try to upload some examples if anyone is interested.

The two attempts at this I’ve heard so far cut too much (one cuts directly to the last verse leaving out the entirety of the long middle section) and the cuts are not done well. It might require getting a hold of the stems to do it properly.

Edit: the third one I listened to is the best but it’s still 14 minutes. I’d still like to get it under 10 minutes. Maybe I’ll take a crack at it myself.
