"Lafayette Blues" is a single by The White Stripes. However, only "Sugar Never Tasted So Good" appeared on the bands eponymous debut album, The White Stripes. 1,000 copies were released in October of 1998 (see 1998 in music) on white vinyl. In 2001 a second edition of 1000 black vinyl were released.
