One Shot Deal is an album by Frank Zappa, posthumously released on June 13, 2008.

The track "Occam's Razor" is a guitar solo extract from a live version of the song "Inca Roads". The solo was used in the song "On the Bus" from the album Joe's Garage (1979). This is an example of Zappa's xenochrony technique. Tracks 3 and 9 feature the Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Symphony Orchestra.
