You're treading a delicate area here...
I bought Sleep Dirt when it came out, and enjoyed it very much. Years later, I heard the cuts with vocals, and enjoyed it very much. I've never been critical enough to go after all the different versions, because (with the checking I've done) I end up liking them very much...
Ya see?
The only way to answer your question properly is for you to collect, and listen to, all the versions out there and then decide which one that you like best - and you'll probably like most, if not all, of them. Countless net hours are logged discussing things that are merely a matter of personal taste (not that I'm against that; I'm sure someone else will chime in with a different opinion).

Subject: [Zappa-List] Sleep Dirt vocals and such

On a whim, I ran through Hot Rats, Waka/Jawaka, and Sleep Dirt today.  After hearing the Thana Harris vocals, I pulled out Lather and was right, no vocals there.  I looked at the 'vinyl vs. CD' page and then got thorouoghly confused.  I never had the Sleep Dirt LP, so I can't really compare it, but are the differences that large?  I never noticed drum overdubs there, too, but it looks like he did it more than I thought.  Anyone have any perspective on that album, in general or specific?  I always liked it, and am happy to have those certain tracks with and without vocals.
