2019 - Cozzen Publications - FULL COLOR EDITION - 194 pages - 6x9  Paperback.

The years covered are from 1950 through 1969 when novelty records were more popular. Chart positions and peak dates were provided by Billboard Magazine. I realize that there were lots of novelty records that charted but those in this book, regardless of their chart position, have remained popular over the years.

I've categorized them by year and alphabetically, by title, for each year. Peak chart position by month and year is also listed. Record images have a color description.

Record information is detailed and you will not find any reissues in this book, unless the reissue is the one that charted. For example; The Edsels released "Rama Lama Ding Dong" in 1958 with the title "Lama Rama Ding Dong" but it wasn't until 1961, when it was reissued with the name change, did it chart.

An Artist (short bios), Record Condition Grade Guide provided by The Record Collectors Guild, Glossary of Record Industry Terminology, Record Formats and Speeds, Common Manufacturing Materials and Resources sections are included in the back of this book.
