From the liner notes (by Stephen Larson) of the below mentioned remastered cdr of the show:
"In August 1979, the Lutheran Student Movement - Canada National Study Conference was held
at Hasting's lake, Alberta -- a church camp near Edmonton. The theme of the conference was "Darkness,
Fire and Whispered Stories: Creative Expressions of the Good News." Invited speakers
on this topic of "faith and art" included a potter who worked at his wheel while speaking about
God as a creative artist; a film maker who spoke of faith dimensions within her craft -- and
Bruce gave a two-night, annotated concert. he sang his songs and told stories about how they
came to be written. Throughout the concert he responded to questions from the audience of university
students. In the afternoons, he gave guitar workshops, teaching interested students
some of the tricks of his trade.
1979 was the summer of Dancing in the Dragon's Jaws and Wondering Where The Lions Are.
Was the concert wonderful? Have a listen!"
KNOWN RECORDING: Yes
Very Good/ Excellent
This show was circulated for years in a much inferior sounding version,
until the master tapes were made available by the original taper(s) for circulation
as a benefit for a Ban the Landmines charity. The original tapes were remastered
and transferred to cdr with artwork and show details.
There is also an excerpt of Feast Of Fools
which was taken from a worship service during the same two days and is not recorded well.
