  • Always a prolific, restless artist, Frank Zappa was constantly recording. The songs on his 1979 release SLEEP DIRT, which stem from as early as 1974, were originally intended for release on a planned four-platter package, but when the record company balked, they were eventually issued separately. Drawing on the talents of such stalwart accompanists as George Duke, Ruth Underwood, and Terry Bozzio, SLEEP DIRT is an intricate, multi-textured record. Initially all instrumental, the CD version was released with soprano vocalist Thana Harris on three tracks.
  • SLEEP DIRT opens with "Filthy Habits," a minor-key, somewhat Spanish-sounding workout. The stately, keyboard-dominated "Flambay" follows, with tinkling marimbas and lyrical bass work, sequing into "Spider of Destiny." These are not so much songs as compositions, mini-operas composed of distinct, often skewed melodic runs. "Time is Money" features the distinctive jazzy, intricate excursions that characterize much of Zappa's "serious" work, but the title track is a surprisingly gentle acoustic number featuring FZ's lovely guitar playing. With its five songs sprawling unhurriedly; this is serious stuff, despite punning titles like "Regyptian Strut" and "The Ocean is the Ultimate Solution."
