By Siriam TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 July 2004
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When this came out in 1974 as the follow up to their great debut LP, Lynyrd were largely depicted and seen as good ol' Southern boys living out a hard rock'n'roll lifestyle on the road playing their brand of Southern blues and rock. Thirty years on now remastered and with three great extra tracks added, it is clear that the music that was captured faithfully on record by Al Kooper in tow again as their producer, has indeed aged very well and has definitely got better with age and may in retrospect even have the edge on its predecessor. Great playing by all the group(the guitar hero returns in triple with Gary Rossington, Ed King (moved up from bass)and Allen Collins) all fronted by that now sadly lost voice of Ronnie Van Zant, who to these ears has always been the US answer to Paul Rodgers of Free/Bad Company fame.
As Al Kooper states in the sleevenotes, the move to LA to record had no effect on the group's output with many surplus biographical songs from the first outing being available. Personal favourites are "The ballad of Curtis Loew" a loving tribute to an old blues mentor and "Call me the Breeze", which for my money is still the best JJ Cale cover ever! Also one hopes at long last the rock writers and critics who claimed at the time the track "Sweet Home Alabama" was the South's answer to Neil Young's prior "Southern Man" track will now appreciate the subtle spoof of regional pride it was always intended to be (and which per the sleevnotes also it seems fooled Governor George Wallace of Alabama!).
Timeless music meant to be played loud!

By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 Mar. 2010

Despite the common perception that Skynyrds first album(PRONOUNCED) is their best,i actually prefer this release,all round improvement in the song writing & the muscianship,not that they needed any,this disc rocks from start to finish.

Opening with their most famous song,'Sweet Home Alabama' the album gets off to a flyer before the sad,pleading vocal of the underated 'I Need You' brings us back to earth.Next up the should have been a hit but wasnt 'Dont Ask Me No Questions,an instant toe tapper followed by the heavy rock of 'Workin For MCA' crashes in.

Side 2 of the original vinyl opened with the beautiful country rock of '.... Curtis Loew' followed by the southern funk of 'Swamp Music' before the chilling glimpse into the future of 'Needle and the Spoon' chills yer bones,thankfully the outstanding J J Cale cover version 'Call Me The Breeze' brings the original album to a climatic finish,my favourite Skynyrd track,ever,certainly for me the albums highlight.

Bonus Tracks: 3 in all, a delightful single remix of 'Dont Ask Me No Questions alongside 2 demos 'Was I right Or Wrong,which would eventually surface later on and a rather non descript 'Takes Your Time'.

Easily the best album of 1974! every home should have one.

Containing the epoch-making 9-minute "Freebird" - it's hardly surprising that Lynyrd Skynyrd's 1973 debut album "Pronounced..." usually gets all the plaudits when it comes to appraising their Seventies catalogue. But for me their next platter "Second Helping" has always been their Southern Rock masterpiece and a far better album overall. If anything the years have been more than kind to those 'Sounds Of The South' - up to a point where the album's legend continues to grow and regularly gets rediscovered as people dig out Classic 1970s Rock albums. I bought "Second Helping" in 1974 along with Joe Walsh's "So What" and Todd Rundgren's "Utopia" and all have been firmly wedged in my soft machine ever since.

There are three versions of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Second Helping" on CD of note – one cheap and the other two pricey (but worth it).

The star in a reasonably priced car is the American 'Expanded' CD Remaster on MCA Records B001171902 (Barcode 602517805125) issued in November 1997 (sells for as little as four quid at times - us the Barcode to get that issue). It was remastered by DOUG SCHWARTZ from the original two-track master tapes, features a nicely featured 16-page booklet and three bonus tracks worth having (53:55 minutes). I own this version and the Remaster is ballsy if not a little overly loud. The three bonus cuts however are a real treat for Skynyrd fans – "Don't Ask Me No Questions (Single Version)", "Was I Right Or Wrong (Sounds Of The South Demo)" (5:33 minutes) and "Take Your Time (Sounds Of The South Demo)" (7:29 minutes). The last two are barroom boogie outtakes and feature some tremendous slide and piano bolstered up here with fabulous audio ("...
