This collection picks up where the first volume left off, centring mostly on the beginning of the Sir George Martin era. Martin produced seven albums by America and Heritage II focuses in on demos and alternate takes from the Holiday, Hearts, and Hideaway albums from 1974-1976.

Heritage II features an unreleased Gerry Beckley song, "Mandy"; demos of songs from Holiday ("What Does It Matter" and "Mad Dog"), outtakes from Hearts ("Simple Life") and alternate mixes from Hideaway ("Amber Cascades" and "Today's The Day"). In addition to these gems, there is a real rarity included herein from 1971, an acoustic instrumental jam by Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell and Dan Peek entitled, "Jameroony" lasting nearly 13 minutes. Unearthed from the band's archives, this track has been rumoured for years but only just found recently.
