5.0 out of 5 stars The Slime, The Floss and The Camario Brio, 26 Nov 2007
This review is from: Over-Nite Sensation (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!
