Moxy II is the second studio album by the Canadian hard rock and heavy metal band Moxy, released in 1976. The album was recorded in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at Sound Stage studio in April 1976 with Jack Douglas producing. The album produced two songs that hit the charts in Canada with "Take It Or Leave It" that reached number 14 and "Cause There's Another" that reached number 16 on the Top 30 on CHUM (AM) in Toronto Canada,[2] and the KISS-FM Texas hits "Midnight Flight" and "One More Heartbreak". The album sold well because of strong live appearances that included tours with Black Sabbath,[3] Boston, and Triumph[4] with heavy promotion by the label (Polydor) (Mercury Records). The album was highly acclaimed on release by Geoff Barton in the UK music publication, Sounds, following which the magazine made the album available to readers for the special price of £1.50.
