- This Is Your Land was issued to promote the forthcoming Street Fighting Years album
(in May 1989) and the Street Fighting Years Tour (also that May).
- An edit of the title track, called the DJ Version, was prepared for the single, but was not released commercially.
(It was limited to the promos only).
- The two bonus tracks recorded during the album sessions, Saturday Girl and
Year Of The Dragon, were both issued on this release. This left Virgin
with nothing else recorded for forthcoming singles.
- As was now becoming standard with the Street Fighting Years singles,
the standard four formats (7", MC, 3" CD and 12") were joined by a limited edition 12". In the case of This Is Your Land,
it was a simple plain gatefold release, which didn't include any other exclusive material.
- The number and formats of the promos were also becoming standard. A 7" (which included the shorter DJ Version)
was issued in a die-cut black sleeve; a white-label 12" also in die-cust black sleeve but with a sticker; and a promotional
CD which included all the tracks on the 12" and set the trend for the BRUCE catalogue number system.
- The single was also commercially released in America - the
only Street Fighting Years single to be commercially released
in the States. A 7" and MC was issued by A&M. Collectors could also look out
for the 12" and CD promos for the American release.
- The single was also
issued in Europe. The 12" single was similar to the UK's (with the exception of a red border) whilst
the full sized CD format was preferred over the fiddly 3" CD.
