Steppenwolf's sophomore effort, simply titled THE SECOND and released in '68 (the same year the band's self-titled debut appeared), is every bit as strong as its predecessor. Like the debut, THE SECOND contains one of classic rock's great anthems, "Magic Carpet Ride," which merges funky organ jamming with hard rock.
Steppenwolf offers one of its best protest songs here, "Don't Step on the Grass, Sam," along with more of its trademark hard-rock sound ("28"). With THE SECOND, and the '70s just around the corner, Steppenwolf became one of the world's leading hard-rock bands.
