Sy Scholfield quotes from "Art Is No Longer in Art. It's in Living," by Angie Errigo, New Musical Express, 5 Feb. 1977, p. 25: "The title of Harper's new album, 'Bull in a Ming Vase,' is a joke on himself, an allusion to his Gemini sensibilities beseiged by Taurus Rising."

A speculative time of 4 AM gives Taurus rising.
