According to Antiquestradegazette.com, a collection of Black Sabbath-related memorabilia unearthed in London will be on sale in a Sheffield auction on September 30th. Dating from the period 1968-73, the collection includes a quantity of postcards from Ozzy to his mother in Birmingham written while on tour.
Also in the collection on offer from Sheffield Auction Gallery, recalling the earliest days of the band, are Earth publicity posters, flyers, hand written song lyrics and photographs.
Stephen Flintoft, specialist music valuer and auctioneer at the Sheffield auction house, says: “Perhaps the most interesting item, among so many, is the handwritten lyrics headed ‘by Earth’ to the song Changing Phases, a title later changed to Solitude, which featured on the 1971 double platinum Black Sabbath album Master of Reality.”
The saleroom say the collection was saved by a Sheffield resident from a property being demolished in the old London Docklands in the 1980s. It is being sold as one lot estimated at £2000-3000.
