Blow Your Face Out is the eighth album (and second live album) by American rock band The J. Geils Band, released in 1976.


The album was recorded at two concerts held in November 1975. The first show was at the Boston Garden in the band's hometown (Boston, Massachusetts) on November 15th, and recorded by Record Plant East Remote with David Hewitt. The second was recorded by Metro Audio Detroit four nights later at Cobo Hall in Detroit, Michigan, where the band's other two live albums "Live" Full House (1972) and Showtime! (1982) were also recorded.[2]

The track listing on the original release has several incorrect song titles. "Must of Got Lost" is listed as "Musta Got Lost", "Lookin' For A Love" as "Intro:", and "Ain't Nothin' but a Houseparty" as "Houseparty". "Musta Got Lost" is possibly a simple error, but the other two are seemingly stylistic choices, as the label on the record notes the real titles of the songs in parentheses.
