The Best of Rod Stewart Vol. 2 is a compilation album released by Rod Stewart in 1977 (see 1977 in music). It was released by Mercury Records as part of Stewart’s contract before switching labels to Warner Bros. and moving to The United States. It includes tracks from all five of his Mercury albums.

Album information[edit]

The Best of Rod Stewart Vol. 2 was originally released as a double-album. It was re-released as a Compact Disc in 1998 which includes all 19 tracks on a single disc. Unlike its predecessor, The Best of Rod Stewart, which focused on major hits, Volume 2 includes the minor and album-oriented songs. All of the tracks are from previously released Rod Stewart solo albums. The original failed to chart or reach a sales award.
