TWO stories below Whitney Street in New Haven stands the world's first tandem electrostatic accelerator - a nuclear research facility that works somewhat like a huge microscope, allowing scientists to peer into the nucleus of an atom and enabling them to explore its behavior and rearrange its structure.

With most of the members of Jefferson Airplane missing in action, Paul Kantner and Grace Slick holed up in a San Francisco studio in 1970 alongside a cast of West Coast rock'n'roll legends — like Jerry Garcia and David Crosby to cut what became Kantner's finest solo work. Fueled by his lifelong obsession with science fiction, Blows Against The Empire is Kantner's rock space-opera: Young people hijack a starship and establish a brave new world in some distant galaxy, light-years away from the earthbound reality of Richard Nixon and the Vietnam War.

È il brano dove viene lanciata per la prima volta la metafora dell'astronave, che sostituisce quella dell'aereo usata nel primo nome del gruppo (Jefferson Airplane). Viene citata la costruzione di una stazione spaziale orbitante per partire in un viaggio... (continua)

Describing the travails and dignity of migrant workers in North America, it is evocative of the world described in John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath. The tune is based on the ballad "Pretty Polly," a traditional English-language folk song from the British Isles that was also well known in the Appalachian region of North America.

Recorded by Pete Seeger, Harry Belafonte, Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Jesse Colin Young, Peter Tevis, Peter, Paul and Mary, Dave Van Ronk, Ramblin' Jack Elliot, Flatt and Scruggs, Will Geer, Kingston Trio, Country Joe McDonald, Odetta, The Alarm, Solas, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Paul Kelly, Lila Downs, Cisco Houston, Karl Denver, Scott H. Biram, The Travellers, Judy Collins, Jefferson Starship

Il pezzo fu arrangiato da Ennio Morricone e cantato da Peter Tevis per il film "Per un pugno di dollari" di Sergio Leone. (Ma Si veda qui questa osservazione di Cristian Veronesi)

Genesis Hall

Dal capolavoro "Unhalfbricking"

Scritta da Richard Thompson che nel 1969 aveva solo 20 anni e preconizzava la rivoluzione contro i padri "che cavalcano con gli sceriffi" e contro i potenti che affamano il popolo...

... ma verrà il giorno in cui il popolo calpestato si vendicherà delle crudeltà subìte!

Una canzone ripresa anche dai Jefferson Starship nel loro ultimo lavoro, "Jefferson's Tree of Liberty" (2008)...
