"Expanded horizons- first tours outside of Canada - Japan, small club circuit in Northeastern U.S. Was told I must be the reincarnation of Kenji Miyazawa, a fine Japanese poet. Sounds good from my end, but what bad things did he do to deserve me? Also was introduced to the work of "Christian" writer Charles Williams, a contemporary of and influence on C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and others. These influences are all over the albums from this time."

James Jensen: "Dancing In The Dragon's Jaws" didn't have any instrumental pieces but it was very much driven by the sound of your acoustic guitar and seems to be a fitting end to your string of acoustic based albums of the 70's. It was certainly your most popular album to date is it one of your favorites?
BC: I don't really have favorite albums, I think that was a good one and it is probably better than some of the other ones but you're right in that it was a cummulation of what I was doing through the 70's and that is fitting for an album that came at the end of that time and the acoustic based Jazz influenced thing didn't die there but it was kind of the last major expression of it. I then started going after something more rhythmic and band oriented and hard edged.
