iTunes Editors’ Notes

No one better defined Southern Rock in the 1970s than Lynyrd Skynyrd. Spearheaded by singer-songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, a three guitar attack, and a rhythm section that could play a tight, crunchy groove, a foot-stompin’ back porch shuffle or a lazy, wasted vibe without losing their personal identity, Lynyrd Skynyrd had an abundance of weapons at their disposal. But in the end it’s their songs that have enabled their legend to live on. Second Helping is, as its title implies, the group’s second album. It doesn’t stray much from the hard rocking foundation of the debut, Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd. Both were produced by Al Kooper, who discovered the group, and feature no nonsense arrangements that ensure tunes such as “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Workin’ For MCA” and J.J. Cale’s “Call Me the Breeze” have a timeless, undated quality. The band could also be counted on for affecting adult tales (“The Ballad of Curtis Lowe,” “The Needle and the Spoon”) that showed Van Zant’s empathy towards his fellow man. Bonus editions of the album feature an essential demo version of Van Zant’s haunting “Was I Right or Wrong,” in case anyone needed further convincing of his extraordinary songwriting talents.

Customer Reviews

Second helping even better then the first

This album introduced a lot of Skynyrd classics like Sweet Home Alabama, Call Me the Breeze, Swamp Music, ect...And it is a great album for a great band. It seems like a lot of people say to start listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd with Street Survivors (which as far as Ive seen, not even available on iTunes), but Id have to say this is a great place to start listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd if your at all interested. I give it 5 stars.

Best skynyrd album

This is their best album in my opinion. "I need you" is Skynyrd's best song that you've never heard.

WOW!!!

I love this album! Skynyrd is for sure. I can only imagine how many more albums they would've made if Ronnie was still alive. BUY THIS!!! It inspired me.

Lynyrd Skynyrd was the definitive Southern rock band, fusing the overdriven power of blues-rock with a rebellious Southern image and a hard rock swagger. Skynyrd never relied on the jazzy improvisations of the Allman Brothers. Instead, they were a hard-living, hard-driving rock & roll band — they may have jammed endlessly on-stage, but their music remained firmly entrenched in blues, rock, and country. For many, Lynyrd Skynyrd's redneck image tended to obscure the songwriting skills of...
