"For the recording of this song (and most of the Overnite Sensation LP),
Zappa used Ike Turner's Bolic Studios in L.A.. By virtue of this
arrangement, Turner offered up the use of the Ikettes (including Ike's
then wife, Tina Turner), to sing backup vocals for various songs on Over-
Nite Sensation including "I'm the Slime". Ike Turner insisted that Zappa
pay the Ikettes only $25 per song, to which he reluctantly agreed. After
hearing one of the recordings in the studio, Ike exclaimed, "What is this
shit?" and later insisted that Tina and the Ikettes not be credited on
the album."
