'60s classics almost ruined by side-long jams

Of these classic '60s A-sides ruined by a pointless B-side that consists of one "experimental" track, which is the best overall?
1. Love - Da Capo (18 minutes of "Revelation")
2. The Rolling Stones - Aftermath ("Going Home")
3. The Velvet Underground - White Light/White Heat (17 minutes of Lou Reed warbling about blow jobs to one chord)
4. Sly & the Family Stone - Stand! (six amazing singles, and then "Sex Machine", which is unfortunately not a James Brown cover)
5. "We Will Fall" from the Stooges' debut, which was only recorded because the band literally didn't have enough songs to fill out an entire LP, so they improvised this druggy dirge live in the studio in one take.
Honorable mention: The Yardbirds - Having a Rave-Up - the A-side is the best hard rock LP of the decade, Jimi honorably excepted, but the B-side consists of nothing more than a tossed off live set of pointless blues covers.
