We study, near Tc, the stability of Parisi's solution for the long-range spin-glass. In addition to the discrete, "longitudinal" spectrum found by Thouless, de Almeida, and Kosterlitz, we find "transverse" bands depending on one or two continuous parameters, and a host of zero modes occupying most of the parameter space. All eigenvalues are non-negative, proving that Parisi's solution is marginally stable.
