Lynyrd Skynyrd Second Helping on Japanese Import SHM-SACD
1974's Second Helping
is a tighter, more professional helping of the signature Southern rock powerhouse style that Lynyrd Skynyrd
pioneered on their acclaimed debut Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd
and it stands as the band's finest hour.
An extraordinary record built around the fervent first-person storytelling of Ronnie Van Zant, an unparalleled three-guitar attack and flattering production from band founder Al Kooper, Second Helping is anchored by the all-time classic anthem "Sweet Home Alabama," not to mention further catalog gems like "Don't Ask Me No Questions," "The Ballad of Curtis Loew," and an amped up take on J.J. Cale's "Call Me The Breeze."
Chock full of rock 'n' roll swagger, outlaw attitudes, searing guitar leads, and most importantly great songwriting, Second Helping
signified Lynyrd Skynyrd's
true arrival while simultaneously setting the standard for what a great Southern rock album could and should be!
SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
