2008 digitally remastered and repackaged reissue of the first album from Damon & Naomi, both formerly of Galaxie 500. This remastered reissue contains new liner notes and photos and it was created as a swan song response to the dissolution of Galaxie 500. More Sad Hits was recorded with Galaxie producer Mark Kramer, and it is just as cutting a reaction to the sinister allure of fame as it was when released back in 1992. Damon & Naomi originally released More Sad Hits on Shimmy Disc one year after the breakup of Galaxie 500, when Dean Wareham left the group to pursue a career with Luna. With no intention of doing any more recording, the duo were nonetheless convinced to go into the studio after Kramer told them he'd assist with both recording and release.

"Okay some minds may operate at a pace too manic and tv'ed out to enjoy the Damon & Naomi records, but really this music is remarkable and anyhting BUT boring. This is not rock or [insert tag here], this is what is most alive about the idea of folk and its more than a little psychedelic. Really, really swell, romantic, and moody, but most of the people who like this already have it anyways. Its a shame MORE SAD HITS dissappoints people, but maybe that has more to do with their own expectations than with this record, because it really is phenomenal."

"At first this album seemed "Ehh" to me. I listened to it a few times and sort of forgot about it. A few weeks ago I resurrected it, and I cannot stop listening to it. Damon & Naomi are the best."
A beautiful recording

"As a fan of mellow pop - for example the Cowboy Junkies, Galaxie 500, Mazzy Star, and VU's third album - I am naturally attracted to this laid-back set. The lyrics are wonderfully written and the songs sweetly crafted. If you're the type of person that needs constant action in life, gunplay and explosions in movies, and bombastic theatrics in music, then this is not the recording for you. But if you enjoy subtlety, simplicity, and contemplation, then this cd will be a wonderful addition to your collection."
