"The Ballads" is a compilation CD that John put together for the Spring 2003 UK tour. John personally selected
songs from his career that he felt fit the "ballads" theme and arranged the playlist. All of these songs have
been previously released but there are a few rarities. "Wind on the River", "Jenny Was a Dream Girl", and
"Golden Gate" are from the Swedish version of John's "Blondes" album. These Swedish mixes are different than
the ones that were released in the States and are terrific. This is a great compilation of John's mellower music
that all fans should enjoy.
