Easy Does It is the seventh track on Eric Leeds' first album Times Squared. Although production for the track is officially credited to Eric Leeds, the track was recorded with Prince before a solo project by Eric Leeds was suggested, and Prince acted as the producer in such sessions, so production credit is given to both artists in this entry.
Basic tracking took place on 22 July 1986 as an instrumental with no known title (five days after Joy In Repetition, the same day as Soul Psychodelicide, four days before The Ball). In August 1989, Prince asked Eric Leeds to compile tracks from the vault for a third Madhouse album. This track was one of ten selected, and in keeping with previous Madhouse releases tracks were given tentative numerical titles of 17 to 26 (the album would be titled 26) - this track was given the title of 22 as the sixth track on the album at the time. When Prince suggested the album should be released as a solo album by Eric Leeds, Leeds came up with titles for each track, in Spring 1990; this track became known as Easy Does It and the album became known as Times Squared.
