David Roe would like to dedicate this album to the memory of Alex Arredondo and all those that have given life and limb in an unending war, and to the citizens of the 9th Ward, New Orleans and the Gulf Coast who are as much the victims of the misbegotten wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as the citizens of those countries.
