Also featured are studio versions of Blind Alfred Reed's "How Can a Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live" and Pete Seeger's "Bring 'Em Home" with modified lyrics by Springsteen, plus "Buffalo Gals" and "How Can I Keep From Singing," which were previously included only on the DVD side of the original DualDisc edition.
"American Land Edition" also boasts an extended version of the behind-the-scenes documentary on the album's creation, videos for "American Land" and "Pay Me My Money Down" directed by Thom Zimny, live footage from June shows in Los Angeles and Concord, Calif., and liner notes by Springsteen authority Dave Marsh.
In a nod to fans that have already purchased the album, the bonus tracks on the new version will be available as single-song downloads via iTunes.
Springsteen and his Seeger Sessions Band will return to Europe for a fall tour beginning Oct. 1 in Bologna, Italy.
