Sheik Yerbouti is a double vinyl live album by Frank Zappa featuring material recorded in 1977 and 1978, released on March 3, 1979 (see 1979 in music) and re-issued on May 9, 1995 (see 1995 in music). The title is play on words; Zappa appears on the cover in the headgear of an Arab sheik, and the character's title and name (an Arabic-looking nonsense word) is properly pronounced the same as the title of the 1976 disco hit "Shake Your Booty".
