Took me a while to get this off a window in Shirley High Street Southampton, and in the rain. Surprisingly in fair nick.

Cathy Myhill (pictured with her husband Pat) designed the poster for a Black Sabbath gig on 2nd March 1970 at Birmingham College of Art and Commerce (as it was then known), which they are holding. Pat booked the gig in his capacity as social secretary .
These belong to a friend/colleague who saw Sabbath twice in the early days. As far as he recalls, the Mayfair show at the Bullring was just after the release of Paranoid. As the poster says, this was just prior to a US tour that contributed .
Note: Sabotage T-shirt made into de facto poster because it wouldn't fit around the old beergut. Paranoid inner sleeve is of the mini LP replica CD's series from Sanctuary/Castle, it was the first Black Sabbath album I ever bought back in 2002 when I was 17, it got so worn out over the years from playing it all the time that Hand Of Doom wouldn't play right anymore, hence it's on the Wall now. I began this collection back in 2008 with the Revolution In Their Minds poster and finished it up roughly around March this year with the two flags on the left.
Dont Know if this will interest you,Iwas in a band called Titus Oates, bluesy band doing the circuit in Brum in the late sixties, we used to do the same gigs as Black Sabath. Lots of people remember us and the best gig we did was the Alhambra back of new st, other members were Dave Fear on Drums Ron Braid Vocals John Hankin on bass and me on guitar Met Robert Plant etc
