Frank Zappa — “Montana”

From 8/21/73.

According to Barry Miles’ Zappa biography, Tina Turner was so impressed with a rough cut of the song, she volunteered herself and her backup singers to sing the “raising my lonely dental floss” backups on the song. Afterwards, Tina called her then-husband Ike Turner into the studio to listen. According to Miles, Ike listened for about a minute, declared “What the hell is this shit?”, and left.
