The Warning (10:32)

About this track

“The Warning” is the seventh song of the album. The song “Warning” originally contained a guitar solo performed by Tony Iommi that lasted over 30 minutes. While the album was being produced, Rodger Bain cut the guitar solo down, feeling that it made the album too long, and would confuse listeners.

    In dictionary next to the word perfect, there should be a sample to this song, or maybe the whole song. People need to learn what's perfect.

    According to Wikipedia, the original song "was written and performed by Aynsley Dunbar's Retaliation".

    Everything about this song is a damn masterpiece... Geezer kicks ass (as always) Tony's improvisations are just amazing... there are so many tempo changes, and all of them are great!!!
