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 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 songs previously released by the band. The final track of the original EP is a cover 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)".
