Background: Released in 1968, The Second was the second album by Steppenwolf.

The album reached #3 on the U.S. album chart, but did not chart in the UK.  The single “Magic Carpet Ride” reached #2 on the U.S. singles chart. gave The Second a 4 1/2 star review:

The group’s second album was virtually a re-creation of its predecessor, only slightly more sophisticated in its range of songs and the manner of playing them, and the in-house writing had improved, though the latter also became highly derivative. Steppenwolf the Second embraces everything from hard rock to psychedelia to blues, and the band is in excellent form, playing very hard and edgy.
