Hello Mr. Duffield,
Besides the books which came with each of the 15 sets on LP [ for example, with "The Swing Era 1930-1936" volume, "Wonderful Times: Making a Lot Out of a Little" (New York: Time Life Records, 1971) ], I would recommend "The Music of Billy May: A Discography" (Westport, CT: Greenwood Press, 1998) by Jack Mirtle. The recording sessions are thoroughly documented there, and include interesting comments by Billy May.
