Second Helping (Segunda ayuda) ‎(LP, Album). Sounds Of The South (2). S-32587. Second Helping ‎(8-Trk, Album).

Second Helping follows the same great formula and although it's certianly a superb follow up and great album, it may come a little short of matching the success of their first album. They did land a classic hit in "Sweet Home Alabama" which became a rock radio staple and a song you couldn't go without hearing if you lived anywhere near the south. southern pride anyone" Well, Lynyrd Skynyrd's got it and this song is the essential southern anthem, or atleast I think so! But back in the day, there was an artist named Neil Young and he had a little song demoting the southern man, well, that didn't flow well with Skynyrd and well here you have it!

Lynyrd Skynyrd wrote the book on Southern rock with their first album, so it only made sense that they followed it for their second album, aptly titled Second Helping. Sticking with producer Al Kooper (who, after all, discovered them), the group turned out a record that replicated all the strengths of the original, but was a little tighter and a little more professional. Though Second Helping isn't as hard a rock record as Pronounced, it's the songs that make the record. Sweet Home Alabama" became ubiquitous, yet it's rivaled by such terrific songs as the snide, punkish "Workin' for MCA," the Southern groove of "Don't Ask Me No Questions," the affecting "The Ballad of Curtis Loew," and "The Needle and the Spoon," a drug tale as affecting as their rival Neil Young's "Needle and the Damage Done," but much harder rocking.
