About

After the stylistic and personnel changes of 1974’s Foreigner, Buddha and the Chocolate Box saw the return of both Paul Samwell-Smith as producer and Alun Davies on guitar. The album certainly feels like a return to the style of the Tillerman, Teaser era, however, the arrangements and production are notably slicker. The album’s title was the result of a plane journey during which Cat found himself to be carrying a small Buddha statue in one hand and a box of chocolates in the other. He reflected that if the plane were to crash, he’d be found between these two objects that represented the spiritual and the material.
