Shine So Hard

Shine So Hard is a live 12" EP released by the band Echo & the Bunnymen on 10 April 1981. The EP reached number 37 on the UK Singles Chart.


Having returned from the United States where they were promoting the Crocodiles album, Echo & the Bunnymen continued to tour the United Kingdom. The concert held at the Pavilion Gardens in Buxton, Derbyshire on 17 January 1981 was recorded by the Manor Mobile. Four songs from the concert, "Crocodiles", "Zimbo", "All That Jazz" and "Over the Wall", were mixed at the Rockfield Studios in Monmouth, Wales. The EP was released on 10 April 1981 and subsequently peaked at number 37 on the UK Singles Chart becoming the band's first hit single.

The name for the EP comes from a line in an earlier Bunnymen song "Stars Are Stars".

A limited edition of 500 32-minute videos were subsequently released in 1982 of the Buxton concert. These were available only to people who were present at the concert.

When the Crocodiles album was remastered and reissued in 2003, the four tracks from the EP were included as bonus tracks.
