Pour tous ceux qui ont été choqués de l'apparition de la version de Sleep Dirt en 1993, avec un mix "différent" c'est à dire avec une chanteuse rajoutant sa voix sur 3 titres (Flambay, Spider of Destiny et Time is Money) rassurez-vous, celle-ci est la version originale comme sur le vinyl de 1979. Complètement instrumentale ce qui la rend beaucoup plus homogène. En plus la version de Regyptian Strut est bien celle avec Chester Thompson à la batterie (donc version originale aussi). Pour tout fan de Frank Zappa qui se respecte ceci est un trésor finalement restitué à sa forme originale.

HASH(0x8cc0b084) étoiles sur 5 The original instrumental album finally debuts on CD 27 août 2012
Par Gary Walsh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I just want to quickly let Zappa fans know that the new Universal Music Group/Zappa Records 2012 reissue of "Sleep Dirt" removes the vocals of Thana Harris found on the previous Barking Pumpkin and Rykodisc CD editions and is now an all-instrumental album like the original 1979 vinyl release. Also, the original Chester Thompson drumming (replaced by much-later Chad Wackerman performances on three tracks) have been reinstated. "Spider of Destiny" now has its complete ending restored and is about 30 seconds longer than the previous version on CD (which also had vocals smothering it). The new 2012 remastering sounds wonderful. Most of the material was recorded circa 1974-1976 with several of the musicians from the celebrated Mothers albums Over-Nite Sensation/Roxy & Elsewhere/One Size Fits All (George Duke, Ruth Underwood). Restored to its former glory, this is quintessential Zappa, a must-have album for any Frank Zappa fan who loves Hot Rats, Waka/Jawaka and The Grand Wazoo.

HASH(0x8cc0b0d8) étoiles sur 5 A brief history of Frank Zappa's "Sleep Dirt" 3 septembre 2012
Par maelje - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
OK, folks, the history of this album is so long and strange that I need to make clear what I'm writing here: A chronological account of the album in its several release forms, concluding with a short review/discussion of the 2012 re-release Amazon is selling here. Prospective buyers should pay attention to this to know EXACTLY what they are and are not getting.

First of all, just to complicate matters, "Sleep Dirt" wasn't even supposed to be released in its original vinyl incarnation in 1979 -- Warner Bros. records did so without Frank Zappa's permission because of an incredibly complicated dispute regarding how many albums he owed the label at the time. Zappa apparently wanted to release a four-LP set called "Läther" that would have included most of the material that Warner ended up dribbling out on "Zappa in New York," "Sleep Dirt," "Studio Tan" and "Orchestral Favorites." One more side note and we then move on to the actual versions of "Sleep Dirt": A version of "Läther" finally did come out after Zappa's death.

The versions of "Sleep Dirt":

1. Vinyl version, Warner Bros., 1979: The original was released without credits because Zappa had given his record company only the songs themselves -- no information on personnel, for example. However, fans who knew Zappa's work well could certainly hear stalwart contributors such as bassist Patrick O'Hearn on some tracks as well as drummer Terry Bozzio and percussionist Ruth Underwood. There were four songs on side one: "Filthy Habits," "Flambay," "Spider of Destiny" and "Regyptian Strut." Side two consisted of "Time Is Money," "Sleep Dirt" and "The Ocean Is The Ultimate Solution." Except for the side break, each song segued into the next without a break.

2. First CD version, Rykodisc, 1991: The song lineup was the same except that there was, obviously, no side break necessary. However, Zappa had Chad Wackerman replace the drum parts on "Flambay" and "Spider of Destiny" and, on some versions of the disc, "Regyptian Strut," although NOT on "Time Is Money" despite the declaration of the liner notes to that effect. But the biggest change, and the one that seemed to upset fans the most, was the addition of Thana Harris' vocals on "Flambay," "Spider of Destiny" and "Time Is Money." Zappa said at the time that those songs were always intended to be sung, having been written for a musical that was to be called "Hunchentoot." Well, OK. But it wasn't just that the songs had vocals now; they had Harris' HUGE, over the top vocals, and the contrast to someone who'd grown up with the album could, indeed, be quite jarring. But it should be pointed out that Zappa did approve this mix.

3. Current (2012) Universal Music CD version: This restores the original vinyl mix, and does so with clarity and precision. Of course, it's a little glassier than the original vinyl, but that's probably unavoidable, and it's "hotter" than the original LP. For most listeners, this probably now constitutes the definitive form of the album, although I probably always will prefer the vinyl version.

Unfortunately, I let my vinyl copy slip away years ago and now have been forced to reacquire one at a price that irks me greatly. But this is an outstanding Zappa album, despite its convoluted history, and if my having all three versions constitutes excess, then I'll just have to be excessive. ;)

One last comment: It's interesting that an artist's viewpoint on his or her work isn't always shared by fans, isn't it?

HASH(0x8cc0b3b4) étoiles sur 5 *NEW 2012 Edition - Sleep Dirt (Original) - Remastered from Analog Source 15 mai 2013
Par Jackie P - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Recorded between 1974 and 1976, this fine record was not released on LP until 1979. The new 2012 edition (on Zappa Records), remastered by Bob Ludwig from original analogue source possibly sounds even better than it did on the original LP!

Gone are the unwanted "added vocals" and "remixing" of the older Ryko CD. That's reason enough to be absolutely thrilled with the chance to get hold of this classy album again, and in superb high quality sound.

If there were a guide to the best instrumental music recorded and released by Frank Zappa then "Sleep Dirt" would certainly deserve to be very very high up the listing.

*Note - All reviews here dated before September 2012 are about a totally different sounding album. If you decide to buy "Sleep Dirt" on CD make sure you order the 2012 (remastered from analogue) edition. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

HASH(0x8cc0b8dc) étoiles sur 5 I could do without the vocals but the music is great. 22 juin 2005
Par John Tabacco - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
"Sleep Dirt" is a collection of instrumental pieces that showcase Frank Zappa's eclectic compositional genius. The kick ass opening track "Filthy Habits" (originally slated for a double album - "Night Of The Iron Sausage" - later to become "Zoot Allures") features a very nasty sounding ostinato over which FZ experiments with very dynamic guitar feedback, (very reminiscent of the composition "Zoot Allures"). The whole piece has a rather Arabian vibe to it modally but ultimately it veers into a psychotic little march toward the very end. A classic Zappa guitar excursion.

Track two, "Flambe", is a parody of the popular standard "Laura". It is a cocktail tour de force with the versatile George Duke doing his best "Art Tatem -ish" imitation. Chester Thomson (drums) and Patrick O'Hearn (bass) add to the drunkenness of the piece while Ruth Underwood on marimba emphasizes the constantly building melody sometimes in tandem with the piano. After a slight variation of the main theme, FZ steers us off into a very cartoonish section that is very regimented and far from the loose drunken feel of the previous passages. There is even a little "yelp" one can hear mid way through this section as if a cartoon character is being put in some uncompromising position. FZ had such a great sense of humor and here his mastery of comedy and serious art is in fine form. After this short excursion into cartoon land we are brought back to the cocktail bar scene again. This time the band is a bit more laid back but the expressive melody in marimba and piano soon build to a beautiful climax and end on a very regimented / stern sounding section that seques nicely into "Spider Of Destiny".

Like "Flambe", "Spider Of Destiny" contains vocals for FZ's unfinished musical "Hunchentoot". And although Thana Harris sings well on these tracks if you can find the original vinyl recording of this album listen to that instead. For me, the vocals are too distracting and the compositions here are so strong they don't need any words to cloud up the brilliance of what's going on below. On "Spider of Destiny" we are treated to a catchy whole tone melody that is almost nursery rhyme like in spots. The form is very clear and very structured in a "German kind of way". where the guitar part works with the ensemble instead of just as a purely solo vehicle. The work ends with a jab of very dynamic guitar outbursts and then a seven note passage (variation on the main theme) repeated and augmented by some twisted sounding chimes. The piece ends on a chime hit and bang! The drums kick into the "Regyptian Strut" a funky brass laden processional that dates back from the "Grand Wazoo" days. This master work features some crackling, low funky bass playing from James "Bird Legs" Youman, a perfectly slow, funked up groove from Chester Thomson, surprising gospel type piano jabs from George Duke, jangling and scraping percussion from Ruth Underwood and of course the brilliant trombone playing of Bruce Fowler who executes all the basic melodies and chords. A recurring five note melody is actually a quote from "Saturn" by Gustav Holtz a work FZ admired. Here he exploits this melody on top of a plodding ostinato, building on it like he was constructing an Egyptian pyramid. The brass parts keeps piling up and the tension mounts until just when you think FZ can go no further he pulls out all the stops and takes us up a half step! The result of which is nothing short of orgasmic. The entire processional exclaims the main majestic melody and proudly ends with the beating of a major chord with a seventh in the bass leaving the listener elated and exhausted.

The next piece, "Time Is Money" is a progressive jazz/ rock work. Again there are words here that do nothing to enhance what is already a lovely melodic piece. Avoid the singing when possible. In fact, you can find a version without vocals on the "Lather" collection. The sweet melody of "Time Is Money",played by FZ on guitar, is constantly being broken up by question mark segments that consist mainly of drum rolls on the bell of cymbals, angular vibes, piano chord clusters and synth bass. These segments go into a very precise mechanical riff (enhanced by an array of cowbells) that is reminiscent of clock gears. Some of it reminds me of a section from the "Roxy and Elsewhere" number "Don't You Ever Wash That Thing". The overall work is very visual in a "Greggery Peccary" sort of way.

Next we are confronted with an FZ rarity: an acoustic guitar number. It's the title track "Sleep Dirt". FZ prepares us for this touching acoustic guitar work by saying "Arf" just so we don't take it too seriously. Here he is solely supported by James "Bird Legs" Youman who plays a somewhat melancholy chord progression while FZ improvises over the top. Frank is in fine form here, constantly inventing new melodic passages with odd rhythmic groupings. There is an almost Eastern European flavor that emerges in the types of scales FZ favors which makes the whole event extremely exotic sounding. Eventually, the piece comes to a fragmented end with FZ asking, "Gettin' tired?" To which Youman replies' "No, uh uhh - my fingers got stuck."

Quick edit right into the the last piece, "The Ocean Is The Ultimate Solution". It begins with a casual rock groove with Terry Bozzio on drums and Patrick O'Hearn on bass. I believe this was O'Hearns actual audition for FZ. In any event, there is a structured melody here with typical FZ melodic jumps and a quick, progressive unison passage that goes into a funky groove emphasized by FZ's chorused drenched strat. This is a progressive rock instrumental with clearly defined sections that ultimately ends up in an eight minute jam that exploits O'Hearn's bass prowess and burns with Zappa's fiery electric guitar chops. 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. If you like this CD you will also enjoy it's two siblings, "Studio Tan" and "Orchestral Favorites".

HASH(0x8cc0b8f4) étoiles sur 5 Great reissue, now without vocal performances! 5 novembre 2012
Par David Goodwin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
In reworking his catalog for CD, Frank Zappa notoriously took certain liberties with some of his albums, re-recording over old parts on a whim, cutting material he no longer enjoyed, and so on. But Zappa's reengineering of "Sleep Dirt," originally his first all-instrumental album, was something else; eager listeners who purchased the first CD release in 1991 discovered, to their apparent horror, that Zappa had asked associate Thana Harris to add vocals to the material (the drums on most of the CD were also replaced by 1980s mainstay Chad Wackerman, but for once this took a back seat to other modifications). Drafted for the interesting Hutchenhoot project, the vocals--which involved, appropriately, "Spiders of Destiny" and other issues of cosmic significance--were delivered in an exaggerated lounge style, and fans screamed bloody murder. While big chunks of the original "Sleep Dirt" were finally made available when "Lather" was reissued in 1996, the original vinyl mix of the album has done a brisk grey-market and internet trade regardless.

UMe rectifies this situation with its 2012 reissue, which returns to the LP mix for a vocal-less, Wackermanless album. It sounds fantastic, actually--far better than some of the shared bits on the older "Sleep Dirt" CDs (Regyptian Strut, which was available for about five minutes in its original mix on the first 1991 Barking Pumpkin and Zappa Records CDs, is MUCH better sounding here)--and is a great upgrade. Collectors will want to hold onto their old discs for now, as it is unclear whether those Hutchenhoot vocals will again see the light of day; and those with Lather might see this as an optional purchase, although the "Sleep Dirt" title track and the full "Ocean is the Ultimate Solution" are both essential. Upgrade with no reservations.
