Avalanche is an EP that was released in October 2000 by Echo & the Bunnymen. The EP was released on CD by Gimme Music and was only available to buy on the internet.[1]

Overview[edit]

The first track on the original EP is a cover version of American folk musician, Tim Hardin's, song "How Can We Hang On to a Dream?", with the title was changed to "Hang on to a Dream". The second track, "Avalanche" was a new song by the band. The next three tracks: "All My Colours (Zimbo)", "Silver" and "Angels and Devils"; are re-recordings of the songs. The final track of the original EP is another cover version, this time of the Bob Dylan song "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" with the title listed as "It's All Over Now".

In 2003 the EP was re-released with two bonus tracks: the first being the Electrafixion version of "Baseball Bill" and the second being a remixed version called "Baseball Bill (Sgt Fuzz Remix)".
