This a a super clean MCA / Sounds Of The South original pressing with W1/W1 stampers, mastered at Kendun. It is ridiculously tough to find clean copies of the first two Skynyrd albums and I couldn't believe how nice this one was. This is the album with "Sweet Home Alabama" and even after hearing it a million times, it's still fun to crank on a solid copy like this. There's light surface noise behind the music in a few spots, but I really think this might be the quietest original copy I've ever heard. On top of that it sounds quite good -- not the very best I've heard, but dramatically better than a lot of copies out there. (Free hint: the copies without the KENDUN stamp in the dead wax are pretty dreadful.)

5 stars Allmusic: "This is the part of Skynyrd that most people forget -- they were a great band, but they were indelible because that was married to great writing. And nowhere was that more evident than on Second Helping."

Vinyl: EX (I'm still surprised how clean)
Cover: VG (small tear and light stain on back)
Play notes: Very good sound, plays super quiet for a Skynyrd original!
