Genre: Classic

Over-Nite Sensation turns 50 years old. An absolute classic. For some a gateway to Zappa, a place to start along with the following 1974 release Apostrophe(‘). It was also the first album by Zappa to be released in Quadraphonic surround sound. The album signaled a change in musical direction for The Mothers, with Frank handling the bulk of the lead vocals and being the only guitar player.  It was a new band, a new sound and eventually the album went gold. Over the years, almost every song on Over-Nite Sensation would go on to become live staples and fan favorites. 50 years on, the album is still one of the highlights of the Zappa catalog and a consistent seller. 

To celebrate this iconic album, UMR present a 4CD + 1 Blu-ray Audio Super Deluxe showcasing 88 total tracks with 57 unreleased tracks and mixes. Featuring the 2012 remaster of the original album by Bob Ludwig along with additional unreleased masters, highlights and mix outtakes from the original 1973 sessions mastered by John Polito. Also included are two unreleased live recordings from 1973 showcasing the same band that recorded the album, one from the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles and the other recorded at Cobo Hall in Detroit. The Blu-ray contains the album newly re-mixed in Dolby Atmos and 5.1 surround by Karma Auger and Erich Gobel at Studio1LA, Zappa’s original 4-channel Quadraphonic mix (available for the first time since 1973), and the Hi-Res stereo 2012 remaster at 192K24B and 96K24B. The package features unseen photos from the album cover shoot along with liner notes and essays by Mark Smotroff and Vaultmeister Joe Travers.
