Collins, Ace. Disco Duck and Other Adventures in Novelty Music. New York: Berkley Boulevard, 1998.
--Offers nice listing and some good discussions of oldies tunes, but Collins gets a number of facts wrong and takes an attitude of superiority toward the music he discusses.
Otfinoski, Steve. The Golden Age of Novelty Songs. New York: Billboard, 2000.
--Good history and analysis of the novelty tradition. Otfinoski, unlike Collins, registers an appreciation and love for his subject.
