Another classic release from the hairy genius, 'Over-Nite Sensation' (1973) is an eclectic mix of jazzy, progressive rock; lyrically, Zappa pushes the boundaries in all directions and, musically, hits the heights frequently with impressive cameo performances from 'The Mothers'. 'Camarillo Brillo' is a lovely opener whilst 'Dirty Love' and 'I'm The Slime' are short, but highly entertaining tracks. Of the longer material, 'Dinah-Moe Humm' (not a song to play at full blast with grannies or kids within earshot!) is filthy but well-executed whilst 'Zomby Woof' and 'Montana' - both of which have searing guitar solos - are also highly impressive; lyrically, 'Fifty-Fifty' is deliberately (and amusingly) raucous and has a wonderful instrumental passage.

If you've enjoyed this crazy collection of songs then I can wholly recommend a couple of other albums from Zappa's vast back catalogue, namely 1974's 'Apostrophe' and 1975's 'One Size Fits All', both of which are brilliant releases.

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!

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

I bought this Fantastic album on its first Vinyl release in the 1973 then the Ryko in 1995, but this remaster has been done very well, drums are clear and precise, Franks guitar perrrs, there seems to be a lot more going on with percussion and keys so overall rich clear sound amazing improvement brilliant

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.

This is a joyous, uplifting album bristling with humour and energy, which never ceases to put a smile on my face when I play it. It's a very good starting point for anyone new to his work, as Zappa is at his most accessible on this album. His sublime solo on Zombie Woof is one of my favourite guitar solos of all time. All the musicians are, of course, top notch, but I particularly enjoy Ralph Humphries' lively and inventive drumming.

Brilliant album. I bought this remastered CD to replace the 1980s Rykodisc twofer which was mastered very quietly and was poor quality. The sound on this version is far better, much fuller and if you have that tinny old 80's disc then its worth replacing it.

Another amazing Zappa/Mothers incarnation. Yet another fantastic incarnation. (One size fits all for me -depending on mood - Mothers from Freak Out to YCDTOSA had more than one album for each taste; Frank being the constant throughout). This album is so funky yet guitar based to my ear. Tom Fowler is often overlooked in the Mothers career. George Duke is sublime as usual and Ponty delivers. Ralph Humphrey on percussion this time. Mfp for those who remember! Cracking solos from FZ too (no surprise)
