Quoted from the Don Giovanni Records site:

"We are really excited to announce that we are [...] 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."

The re-issued lo-fi classic first Jeffrey Lewis album, featuring Jack Lewis on a couple of tracks, originally released by Rough Trade Records Sept 3, 2001.  Now reissued on LP for the first time, with full lyrics included, and an insert with other info as well.
