Sleep Dirt is an album by Frank Zappa released in January 1979, on his own DiscReet Records label. It reached on the Billboard 200 album chart in the United States. The album's creation was spurred by Warner Bros. rejection of Zappa's Läther album.
Then Frank Zappa got into a disagreement with his record company, Warner Bros. and Läther was split up into several different releases as part of a contractual agreement. The results were dumped on the market in 1978 and 1979, while Zappa moved on to his own record label. Sleep Dirt consists of miscellaneous tracks recorded between 1974 and 1976, including "Flambay," "Spider of Destiny," and "Time Is Money," songs that wre apparently part of an unissued Zappa musical/rock opera from 1972 called Hunchentoot. They are sung by soprano Thana Harris.

Outstanding musical communication. Overall this is an excellent album (marred in my opinion by unnecessary vocals and awkward Chad Wackerman drum overdubs) that showcases the restless mind of Frank Zappa. Find the original vinyl for best listening results.

Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Zappa is known for being able to play in a large number of different styles and much of this album showed yet another side of Zappa. Although I'd be one of the last people to tell Zappa that releasing the album this way is what should be done, and it's obviously a moot point when it comes to Zappa himself, I'm glad that it was released in this format. I have no idea whether Frank would have approved, but I'm glad that this is back once again.
