It was almost certainly an edited version; I can't imagine a 10 1/2 minute song getting onto Top 40 radio, not even in the mid 1970s.

7 minutes, like "Bohemian Rhapsody"? Maybe. Not 10:28.
The first "long" song I remember on the radio was Like a Rolling Stone, and it was a smidge over 5 minutes.

Or was it In a Gadda Davida? That's what Wolfman Jack would play at the end of the night so he could duck out early.
