compiling the best of damon & naomi's records over the course of four albums on the venerable sub pop label, the sub pop years commemorates agrand chapter in the career of a band who never planned an existence in the first place. after more sad hits (just reissued last year on 20/20/20), the duo was ready to call it a day and concentrate on their book company. however, they were convinced to continue onward by sub pop poobah jonathan poneman, who saw great potential in their continued collaboration. it was not the first time (nor last) his hunch proved right. the specially priced sub pop years captures an important part of that journey with a conciseness and breadth that will enrich both a longtime fan and the first time listener. as the cd is being released simultaneously with a dvd compiling live performances and videos, as well as a special reissue of all three galaxie 500 albums (the first reissues ever of the vinyl), the sub pop years is part of a larger look back before the band finishes up their new record, slated for release in 2010.
