Look at what we stumbled upon!

The original flyer of ‘A Pop Music Concert’ that was later known as ‘The Battle of the Bands’ held at Fleet Club in 1967. Mr. Farooq Fatah distinctly remembers that the event was recorded backstage so we are hoping to find a copy of that recording somewhere.
Would anyone happen to know the organizers of the event?? (Names are listed on the flyer) If so, please do get in touch with us right away!
Message from Khawer Jamal ~
I am Khawer Jamal – My brother Wajid Kamal was the brainchild of this – along with my friends Mahmoud Baig of Alishaan, Farooq Oosman of Oosman Bros, and Tayib Salim PIA. Them were the days – I was there.
I sold many tickets for this concert in School (Habib School). Amin Lakhani and Azim Lakhani were close friends of my brother Wajid and cousin Rehan Mirza. Later on another concert was arranged by my Brother at Nasreem Room, Intercontinental. Mahmud Sipra (Legend) was the MC. The Four Thoughts stole the show in that one.
My Band fellow in Habib School (Umeed Ansari) was in it, I think. TeeM (Tariq Mirza) was there also.
I think Tayib Salim would be the guy to ask for recordings.
