The Newcomers

? Touch of Grey Touch of Grey

It came into concerts around '82, and didn't make it to a record til '89, I think. Perfect song for a perfect time in the band's long strange trip

How is this song last?

This song had a powerful meaning to it - Sabbath

The Contenders

11 Playing In the Band
12 Uncle John's Band Uncle John's Band
13 Terrapin Station

A powerful masterpiece that in its best versions leaves goosebumps. One of the greatest songs by one of the greatest bands ever. This song can transcend time and at times be a symbolic image of the mightiest images possibly portrayed by this genius of a band.
