Orleans II is the second album from the soft rock band Orleans. Orleans II was originally released in Japan and Europe in 1974. ABC Records chose not to release the album in the United States because they did not see any hits on the album, and were subsequently dropped from ABC Records. Ironically, the label's parent company, the American Broadcasting Company, would use the band's later song "Still the One" as part of a promotional campaign.
