Official Release #25

The work on this album was recorded between 1974 and 1976, but was not released until January 1979. It was later overdubbed vocally/instrumentally and was also remastered & digitally equalized.

There are 3 versions of this album.
1) The LPs contain the original instrumental version.
2) The first CD pressing has the original version of "Regyptian Strut", but subsequent pressings have new drums on that track, overdubbed by Chad Wackerman (not credited on the CD).
3) On all CD (except for the 2012 reissue) versions, three tracks are overdubbed with vocals by Thana Harris.
Both versions of 'Regyptian Strut" can be found on Läther.

The original LP instrumental version was rereleased on CD in 2012.

referencing Sleep Dirt, LP, Album, DSK 2292
God what an underrated and somewhat unheard album in Zappa's vast Canon...I'm obviously referring to the orig mix that's, thankfully, the one back in print today.
