Offered for sale is a still sealed early U.S. pressing of Easy Action, the second album by Alice Cooper.
About this copy: This copy of Easy Action is an early 1970s U.S. pressing, either on the Straight or Warner Brothers label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed. The label variation is unknown, this may be a first pressing on the Straight label or a second issue on the Warner Brothers label. It’s fairly heavy, so it could be either.
The wrap is fully intact except for a small 1/2″ (1 cm) break at the lower right hand corner and a punch hole in the lower left hand corner.
There is slight fading on the spine.
A beautiful copy of an album that is usually found in terrible condition.
Background: Released in 1970, Easy Action was the second album by the Alice Cooper band.
The album did not chart in either the U.S. or UK.
The author of the book Alice Cooper, Steve Demorest, accurately calls this “the great undiscovered” Cooper album. Pretties for You is a difficult record, and Love It to Death is a classic, but this pre-Bob Ezrin album, created with help from Neil Young producer David Briggs, might be the perfect picture of an evolving Alice Cooper Group. “Mr. & Misdemeanor” has Cooper beginning to define his nasty trademark vocal style: “Here’s new pretties for you/nobody likes me but we adore you.” Cooper became known for writing two-and-a-half- to three-minute catchy tunes with negative themes, augmented by longer pieces toward the end of the recordings. … That this band could run the gamut from Zappa to Bowie, and perhaps inspired both, makes Easy Action a good study and entertaining record.
