By late 1985, Shining Path guerrillas were also active in the department of Puno in the south, in the Andean departments of Junín and Pasco to the north, and the coca-growing region of the Upper Huallaga Valley in the northeastern departments of Huánuco and San Martín.

 MISRA
The Shining Path was recorded at Fried From Sound, McManus' Omaha home studio and written and recorded by McManus himself with help from a few contributing musicians.
