My Rhino DMM re-release version of Initiation is decent sound quality, but yes, it's definitely quieter than your average vinyl.  Total time is listed as 32:11 on side 1, 36:00 on side 2.

Put My Dream On This Planet does have lots of silence between the audible parts, so I would imagine that a vinyl master craftsman could cut the grooves of the long silent bits a little closer together to conserve some space...
