Rock and Roll Part Three is the first studio album by American rock band Ozma. The album was originally released on Ozma's own Tornado Recordings on January 1, 2000. After signing to Kung Fu Records, the label agreed to re-release both Rock and Roll Part Three and The Doubble Donkey Disc with new some mixing and both being remastered. This remastered version was released on August 21, 2001

Some of the songs that were recorded for this record were also featured in their demo form on Songs of Inaudible Trucks and Cars.

The album's name comes from the Songs of Inaudible Trucks and Cars song, "Iceland".

Writing and Recording

See Ozma recording blogs - 1999-2001

While recording the album, Daniel Brummel kept a day-by-day journal on their website, ozmaonline.com. They would post pictures and fun quotes from that day's recording session, a trend that continued into the recording of The Doubble Donkey Disc.

Notably, the album starts and ends on the word chance/chances in the same key.
