Country Joe McDonald's album dedication is as follows;
This album is dedicated to the memory of my mother Florence and my father Worden McDonald, "lifers" and "Troopers" in the global struggle for justice. And to my generation ... the Woodstock / Vietnam generation, may we face the future and our mortality together with dignity.
