The Winding Sheet was Lanegan's first solo effort. It was a bit of a departure from his work with Screaming Trees to this point. This one has some fun guest appearances, including Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic. Can't imagine where Nirvana got the idea to do "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?"...the original Leadbelly version notwithstanding, of the cover versions I have heard, I prefer Lanegan's. His deep voice lends itself well to that song. Anyway, the red vinyl copies of this record generally sell for a lot. The first 1,000 copies were on red vinyl. The black one isn't the cheapest either, but it's more manageable. It was also released on Glitterhouse in Germany. That version is quite easy to find.

In 2015, Sub Pop re-pressed The Winding Sheet on 180g black vinyl as part of the Mark Lanegan One Way Street box set. Then, in 2016, they released in on its own (on standard weight vinyl).
