The title is a line from a poem by the great Apollinaire, who died from wounds he sustained while serving in World War I.
"All profits from sales of this compilation will be distributed to specific counter-military recruitment and pacifist organizations and programs. We hope to assist them in their efforts promoting peace and non-militarism in the United States.
"All of the musicians represented here are US citizens. Our voices join with many others across this land that freely question and openly oppose war." --Josephine Foster
