Dr. Demento 20th Anniversary Collection: The Greatest Novelty Records of All Time gathers two discs' worth of highlights from the five-volume Dr. Demento Presents series, as well as some of the good doctor's other favorite novelty singles. Anyone familiar with Demento's show will instantly recognize the Firm's "Star Trekkin'," Barnes & Barnes' "Fish Heads," and Darrell Hammond's "Wappin'," while Bobby "Boris" Pickett's "Monster Mash" and Sheb Wooley's "Purple People Eater" are among the novelty classics that have become part of the mainstream pop culture canon. Weird Al Yankovic's "Eat It," Ray Stevens' "Gitarzan," Julie Brown's "The Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun," Steve Martin's "King Tut," and Allan Sherman's "Hello Mudduh, Hello Fadduh! (A Letter From Camp)" are some of the other highlights of this fun collection, which is arguably the only novelty rock album most people will ever need. ~ Heather Phares

This is great, but I still say that you can't have "The Greatest Novelty (and comedy) records of all time" without Charlie Drake's "My Boomerang Won't Come back." The good "Doctor" could make up a 4 or 5 CD collection and still not have someone's personal favorite. Not a bad idea! AND I think that enough time has elapsed so that we can "lighten up" (so to speak) and "exhume" Bruce "Baby Man" Baum's "Marty Feldman Eyes." This is a funny disc based on, of course, "Bette Davis Eyes." We all still love Marty (I know that he's up in Heaven, looking down at what we're doing and laughing at US) and I look at this as a tribute. Lighten up!
