Works Volume II is an album released in 1977 by Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Unlike Works Volume I which consisted of three solo and one ensemble sides, Volume II was a single album which seemingly was a compilation of leftover tracks from other album sessions that had not made those albums. While many derided the album for its apparent lack of focus, others felt it showed a different side of the band, with blues, bluegrass and jazz being very prominent as musical genres in this recording.
