"Easy Action" is the second studio album by Alice Cooper, released by Straight Records in June 1970. The title comes from a line in the musical film "West Side Story", which was one of the band's favorite films.

Drummer Neal Smith later said of the record producer David Briggs:
"David hated our music and us. I recall the term that he used, referring to our music, was "Psychedelic Shit". I think "Easy Action" sounded too dry, more like a TV or radio commercial and he did not help with song arrangement or positive input in any way." [http://www.nealsmith.com/entrevue.html]
