We are really excited to announce that we are going to be doing the first vinyl pressing of Jeffrey Lewis' debut album "The Last Time I Did Acid I Went Insane." This record, originally released on Rough Trade, was an instant classic when it came out with the New York Daily News naming it the Best Indie Album of 2002 and Uncut magazine calling it "bizarre but brilliant." Since then he has played hundreds of shows and earned high praise from everyone from Will Oldham and Jens Lekman to Jarvis Cocker and Ben Gibbard. Jeff and I have been talking about doing this for almost seven years and finally just in time for its 10th anniversary will be doing the first vinyl issue.
In addition to being on vinyl for the first time the record will come with a download card which in addition to the album includes four live never before released bonus tracks from 2001.

Pre-orders for the record are up now in our store.
