Easy Action is the first album of the Swedish glam rock band Easy Action. The band got signed to a Swedish indie label, Tandan Records, and released their first album in the Scandinavian countries in 1983. The label owner Sanji Tandan later became the band's manager and got them signed to the Warner Bros label Sire, and in 1984 a second version of the album, with two new songs, was released worldwide. Easy Action was the first Swedish band ever to sign a US major label deal.
