"A Part Of America Therein, 1981" is a live album by The Fall, recorded on their US tour in 1981 and originally released only in the US in 1982.

The group were without Paul Hanley as, at 17, he was too young to be granted a visa to perform in the US. As a result, vocalist Mark E. Smith invited previous drummer Karl Burns to fill the vacancy, initially on a temporary basis - Burns had previously left the band early in 1979. The album shows the group performing several songs that had not yet been released; 3 songs from 1982's "Hex Enduction Hour" are present as is "Lie Dream Of A Casino Soul" recorded as a single following the tour's completion. Upon their return to the UK, Smith invited Burns to remain in the group whilst also retaining Paul Hanley; although both occasionally played other instruments, The Fall appeared with both Burns and Hanley on drums for the next 3 years.
