Easy Action is the second studio album by the American rock band Alice Cooper, released by Straight Records in March 1970. As with Pretties for You, the band's debut from the previous year, Easy Action was neither a commercial nor critical success. Singles include "Shoe Salesman" and "Return of the Spiders".

Album cover, vinyl color and labels are "Easy Action" - but the actual tracks are those from the 2018 Rhino re-release of "Killer" (also a mispress). Other Versions (5 of 56) View All. Cat.Easy Action ‎(LP, Album, Gat).

The best of the best from the Alice Cooper group. Considering that the ACG never did a bad song, choosing the tracks for this album must have been a challenge. Bob Ezrin did some remixing on some of the earlier tracks from Killer bringing Alice's voice more to the forefront than the original recordings. The album cover was the first one that was not a gatefold or other gimic with the exception of the Australian '74 release nd features a sepia-toned Drew Struzan illustration of the band members in front of a 1930s garage

Easy Action is often regarded as the middle child of Alice Cooper’s early years. The 1970 sophomore album is more palatable than 1969’s Pretties For You, yet void of the gargantuan insta-hits mixed by Bob Ezrin on 1971’s Love It To Death. But three of these nine tunes reveal Alice Cooper finding his voice. Some songs even sound like blueprints for Love It To Death, like the first cut Mr. And Misdemeanor which reveals Alice experimenting with the signature snarl that overtook his later inflections.

It can be argued that Easy Action was the album that laid the foundation for the rise of one of the most controversial and spectacular rock n’ roll bands of the 70’s, as well as one of the most recognised and acknowledged rock legends of all time. If not, the record was at least the first step in the evolution of the Alice Cooper band. There is evidence of change on the opening track, Mr & Misdemeanour, with Vince ditching his clean, poppy vocal style occasionally, in favour of a more familiar Cooper snarl
