Second Helping . 1974.

Southern Rock Lynyrd Skynyrd. Band Name Lynyrd Skynyrd. Album Name Second Helping.

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.

Call Me the Breeze. Few bands have followed a great first album with an equally great second, but Lynyrd Skynyrd did. Second Helping introduced the three-guitar attack that would become the band’s signature, with Ed King promoted from stand-in bassist. Pete Mineau: I remember I was in high school when this album came out. I had not heard of Lynyrd Skynyrd yet. Their first album came and went without any notice from me or my friends. about as far away from the Southern Rock scene as you can get. (To us, Southern Rock was Ted Nugent, The MC5, The Stooges and anything else coming out of Detroit!
