The Tenth National Jazz and Blues Festival.
Plumpton Race Track.
Streat. East Sussex.
6th-9th Aug 1970.

Black Sabbath.

       Although there is an audience tape , supposedly of Sabbaths performance , released as a bootleg called Live At Plumpton,  which is around 40 minutes long , it is not actually from the Plumpton show, as boot distributors were notoriously lax about the veracy of the information they would lob on their sleeves of their albums. The last I heard was that this is actually a recording of a German show from the same era. However , the set list may be the same as the one played at the Festival.
