A benefit for GUITARS OVER GUNS. Featuring new recordings of legendary songs of nonviolence written by Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Neil Young, Pete Seeger, James Taylor, Yoko Ono, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Steve Goodman, Bobby Darin, P.F. Sloan, Eric Bogle, Stephen Stills & Midnight Oil. Growing up in the '60s, we witnessed the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy. We saw our country torn apart by a senseless war taking place in Vietnam - it was a tumultuous time in our nation's history. It was during this period when many artists raised their voices to be heard, hoping to affect change. It is in that spirit that this album came to be, to encourage new artists to be engaged with the issues that matter the most.
