AllMusic Review by

Four songs short of being identical to the band's Greatest Hits, this set would be worth purchasing for its 20-bit remastering if jug band music were known for its remarkable sonic nuance. The songs missing from this collection are "Mobile Line," "Hawaii," "The Story Book Ball," and "Overseas Stomp." Acoustic Swing & Jug isn't a bad release at all, just a redundant one, since Greatest Hits remains available on CD, too. It's up to listeners to decide which set belongs in their collections.
