Notes

The original LP release had a gatefold sleeve and an eight page lyrics/credits booklet. It is well worth searching out an LP copy of this album for the full size artwork on the cover and in the booklet.

Blows Against The Empire is one of a group of albums that was produced by an extended family of Bay Area musicians, usually referred to as PERRO (Planet Earth Rock N Roll Orchestra), that primarily comprised members of the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
