American X: Baby 81 Sessions is an EP by American rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, released in the US on December 4, 2007. The CD collects B-sides and unreleased tracks from the Baby 81 recording sessions along with a new short film for the song "American X." Initially, the CD was only released at indie record stores in the US, but was made available internationally shortly thereafter. The EP is notable for an uncharacteristically dark sound, and this is a possible reason why these particular songs were omitted from the album.
"The Likes of You" was a bonus track on the UK release of Baby 81.
"The Show's About to Begin" was the B-side to the Weapon of Choice single, April 2007.
"Vision" (CD-single only) and "20 Hours" (vinyl-single only) were B-sides to the Berlin single, July 2007.
"MK Ultra" was released under the name "US Government" as a special digital download on the band's website in December 2005. It is an acoustic version of the song "US Government" appearing on the 2nd album Take Them On On Your Own.
