With these two, we are halfway thru 'Easy Action'.

Alice Cooper - Vocals
Neal Smith - Drums and Vocals
Dennis Dunaway - Bass and Vocals
Glen Buxton - Lead Guitar
Michael Bruce - Rhythm Guitar, Vocals, Piano and Organ

Track #5 is entitled 'Return Of The Spiders'. It's a rock 'n roll song, which is dedicated to legendary 50's rocker Gene Vincent, whom the ACG supported in 1969

It should be noted that the title of the song doesn't appear in the lyrics

In the early 60's, when the band were originally known as The Earwigs, they changed their name to...The Spiders!

Drummer Neil Smith states that this is his favourite song on 'Easy Action'

05/09 - Return Of The Spiders (Cooper, Bruce, Buxton, Dunaway, Smith.)

" Well, stop.. look, and listen
There are hands that are gathered here
With my hands raised to speak
But you all won't hear
No, you all won't hear
We all won't hear

Let me in your living door
Let me in, knock knock I said, is there
Well, it's me they're reaching hand
And I'm coming after you
I'm coming after you
Coming after you

Well, I'm tired - yes I'm weary from my long journey
But I'm not yet all ready to rest
For you can come along with me
We go searching for rest, yes
Come on and search with me
Oh, search with me
Woah, search with me
Come on and search with me
Wo-woah, come on and search with me

Come on and search with me...
Come on and search with me...
Come on and search with me...
Come on and search with me... "

Then we have 'Laughing At Me', which is another piece of 1960's psychedelia

06/09 - Laughing At Me (Cooper, Bruce, Buxton, Dunaway, Smith.)

"If it's laughing you need
Then it's laughing indeed
And it's laughing at me
Yes, it's laughing at me

So I started to end
The beginning to end
Then I ended the end
Yes, I ended the end

And it's laughing, it's laughing at me"
People try to put us down
Just because we get around

Golly, Gee! it's wrong to be so guilty
