The second full-length studio album by the legendary American
Psychedelic/Experimental Rock band.
The author of the book "Alice Cooper", Steve Demorest, accurately calls this "the great undiscovered" Cooper album. This album, created with help from Neil Young producer David Briggs, might be the perfect picture of an evolving Alice Cooper band.
Nevertheless, as with "Pretties For You" (the band's debut from the previous year), "Easy Action" was neither a commercial nor critical success. None of album’s songs have ever been performed live by Cooper since the tour in support of their third album "Love It to Death; in fact, only "Return of the Spiders" was performed on the tour for that album.
Though perhaps seen as being an overlooked work in terms of later releases, "Easy Action" tracks "Mr. & Misdemeanor" and "Refrigerator Heaven" were both later included in the well-received compilation album "The Life And Crimes Of Alice Cooper". "Refrigerator Heaven" was also included in the Warner Bros. compilation album "Zapped", showcasing acts signed or produced by Frank Zappa.
