Product Description

Best known for the infamous "Dinah-Mo-Hum"--a tale of sexual depravity and bovine perspiration-- Over-Nite Sensation is a flawlessly executed collection of jazz-rock Frank Zappa classics. The seven-song set, which includes backup vocals by Tina Turner and the Ikettes, equally showcases Zappa's unique penchant for storytelling and the abilities of his studio-musician sidemen. Zappa's guitar work is also some of his finest, flaring up on "I'm the Slime", "Zomby Woof" and "Montana". Andrew Boscardin

5.0 out of 5 stars The Slime, The Floss and The Camario Brio 26 Nov 2007
By G. Don Fielder VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Probably amongst Frank's top ten - though you do have to think about that carefully, now there are 80-odd to choose from, in a variety of genres - Overnite Sensation remains an utterly fabulous album. Sticking to a rock/jazz format (with the emphasis most definitely on the former), it delivers a solid and consistent helping of great tunes, brilliant musicianship from all the players, superb vocals from Frank, sounding wonderfully gruff and impossibly deep and Ricki Lancellotti soaring to demented and voicebox-bursting heights (such a shame his tenure with Frank was so sadly cut short), plus Tina Turner's fabulous contributions throughout, particularly on "Montana" (a contribution which was uncredited at the time of release, due to her record company's nervousness about the association with Frank - shame on them!) and some awesome, room-shaking guitar solos from Frank, especially on Zomby Woof and Montana. You've got the great George Duke on keyboards, Ian Underwood on sax and woodwind, Ruth Underwood on percussion, Jean Luc-Ponty on violin, the Fowler brothers on Bass and Trombone, Ralph Humphrey on drums; with every single one of them working their socks off to deliver Frank's wonderful arrangements, as unique and imaginative as ever. Not to mention the laugh-out-loud lyrics, with the biggest guffaw-jerker reserved for the very end of the last track. You really can't fail to enjoy this - you simply wouldn't be human!

5.0 out of 5 stars I true classic album 14 Jan 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Perhaps one of Mr Zappa's more commercial releases but just because it's easy to digest, that doesn't mean it's a sell-out. Every single track is a winner in my book.

One of Franks finest albums , a great listen.

This review is for 2013 vinyl.

This is a fantastic pressing , really quiet vinyl . Mastered with great care to the original dynamics.
Really punchy but smooth analogue sound.
Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Zappa at his "vile and pernicious" best! 6 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Having been a fan for well over 20 years, this is his best in my opinion - great guitar, vocals, lyrics and a wonderfully "sleazy" 70's groove - all wrapped up with fantastic musicianship. Not as challenging as some of Frank’s more, shall we say, idiosyncratic albums, this is a masterpiece as well as a timepiece from that classic era of good old-fashioned rock. Having said that, don’t be under any illusions – this is Zappa through and through! BTW – whatever happened to xylophones in rock music?!

5.0 out of 5 stars How can you ask for more than this??? 26 Dec 2001
Format:Audio CD
Only 7 tracks, but every one as good as the last... no, better... no, as good.
Displaying Zappa's wonderful bassy tones after his perculiar accident and featuring both Dianamo Hum and Montana, two of my top five Zappa tunes, and I'm The Slime, a song that George Clinton Himself has been know to play live - you cannot ask for a more tuneful and amusing tribute to Zappa mad invention... wonderful from start to finish.
also check apostrophe(') for more of frank's best vocals and more mad funky soul.

Loved this album back in the seventies when it was first released & it still sounds great today. Very amusing and musically brilliant. A unique talent, sadly missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zappa did it again 22 Feb 2014

Another great album from the musical genius that was Frank Zappa. A mid digit to the flower power hippies and conservative prigs.

Deffo my favourite Zappa record. Startlingly original and very funny lyrics overlay virtuoso rhythms, playing and arrangements.
Accessible to all I would say.

everything I expected does what it states on the label and more bland comments that don't actually say anything. one more word was required.
