In 1995 it was re-issued by Shrimper with an altered track listing as The Original Losing Losers, on CD and as a double album on vinyl.
Several songs on the album were re-released on future Sentridoh albums. "Only Losers," "Breakdown Day," "Rise Below Slowly" and "Mellow, Cool and Painfully Aware" were re-released on Winning Losers: A Collection of Home Recordings (1994). "Blonde in the Bleachers" was re-released on Another Collection of Home Recordings (1994). These songs were omitted from The Original Losing Losers, along with other revisions to the track listing.
The liner notes to The Original Losing Losers note that the album was "recorded at home on whatever." The album contains an early version of the Sebadoh song "The Freed Pig," which appeared on the band's 1991 album III, and a cover of "Blonde in the Bleachers" by Canadianfolk musician, Joni Mitchell.
In a review of The Original Losing Losers, Allmusic's Peter J. D'Angelo wrote "the real beauty of the record is the way that the chronologically distanced recordings interact with one another to turn the entire record into a sort of bizarre musical experiment...Sentridoh is wild ride of bizarre recordings that will certainly appeal to die-hard Barlow fans and will even more likely drive his detractors to madness."
