Thanks to everyone that has helped with the quest to source and archive these gigs.
My thanks to the Birmingham Music Archive and especially to Jez Collins at the Centre for Media and Cultural Research in Birmingham City University:
Number 7 almost certainly refers to the show at

They are (almost certainly) in the spring of 1977
Can anyone find anything on these?
