No More Than You Can Handle (2013 double disc)

An apt title for 40+ years of the best from Orleans!



No More Than You Can Handle.
An apt title for 40+ years of the best from Orleans!

Life is good, but it ain’t always easy, is it?

Like yours, Orleans’ lifespan has been full of ups and downs, triumphs and tragedies. In the end, whether good, bad or indifferent, as the title track’s lyric states, “All is well, and this too shall pass.”

Please help us celebrate both merely surviving and joyously thriving for the last 50 years by having a listen to what we’ve put together in this 1/2 studio, 1/2 live 31-track collection.

Beyond the hand-picked favorites you may (or may not) have on other Orleans CDs, what’s NEWer on these discs?

2012 studio sound-alike remakes of Still the One and Dance With Me by Larry, Lance and John (with Charlie Morgan). You’ll be amazed at how close we got to the originals!

The last master recordings by Larry and Lance in 2011 … Asking Too Much and the title track, No More Than You Can Handle.

A more recent addition to the Orleans song list, Beautiful World, written by Fly Amero, John and Lance.

The CD insert below tells the story of the entrances and exits of the alumni musicians who have lent their considerable talents to Orleans over the decades. It also honors those we’ve lost along the way.

As for the new CD, OMG … I love the new versions [of the hits] the band recreated … Wow! The drums and bass … awesome. Larry sounded spectacular as well … I also enjoyed [Lance’s] vocal on No More Than You Can Handle. Thanks for keeping the band alive … and please tell the guys how great I think the new stuff sounds!
