The title derives from a line in Steve Cooney's song "Island Girl", which Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh sings on the album with Cooney himself as accompanist. This album is a slight departure from previous Altan albums, in that there is a Bob Dylan song. The album also features the Scots language song, "Green Grow The Rushes" by Robert Burns. A video was released for the Irish track Beidh Aonach Amárach.
Altan played live in concert the following tracks: "Green Grow the Rushes", "Eoghainín Ó Ragadáin", "Ten Thousand Miles", "Gusty's Frolics/Con's Slip Jig/The Pretty Young Girls of Carrick/The Humours of Whiskey", "The Dispute at the Crossroads/Columba Ward's/ Siuns Reel".
