Oh, My God! is the debut album of emcee Doug E. Fresh. It was released in 1986 on Reality Records, a short-lived subsidiary of the legendary Fantasy Records, and was produced by Dennis Bell and Ollie Cotton. The album was only a moderate success when it was released, peaking at #21 on the Top R&B Albums chart. Today, the album is considered one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time,[citation needed] but it has never been released on compact disc. This album has also been known to contain one of the first horrorcore songs with "Play This Only at Night,"[citation needed] which used an interpolation of the theme music of the movie Phantasm.
