Compiled by Ross and his longterm fan base, The Difficult Third Compilation features tracks from all six of of his albums: A Poem You CanKeep, My Name Means Horse, After The Applause, Smiling For The Camera, The Lost Ross Ryan Album, and One Person Queue.
There is also a new track specially recorded for this release: 'Queensland'. This is a perfect starting point for the Ross Ryan novice and expert alike, as many of these tracks appear on CD for the first time. Anyone familiar with Ryan's two big 1970's hits: 'I Am Pegasus' and 'Blue Chevrolet Ballerina', will not be disappointed - as both are featured here but there's also a wealth of fan faves ('Sedel (Never Smiled At Me)', 'Orchestra Ladies', '606', 'Goodbye Mitchy' etc.) as well.
Accompanied with booklet photos of Ross Ryan through the years and liner notes. Digitally re-mastered by Gill Mathews.
