AllMusic Review by

The companion volume to Music Club's Swing Baby Swing! compilation, this delves further into the vaults of Los Angeles' Swing Time Records and comes up with 15 winners. This little gem is loaded with prime cuts, and some of the highlights include Elroy Peace's "Onion Breath Baby," Earl Jackson's "Take Out the Squeal," Floyd Dixon's "Red Head 'n' Cadillac," Big Jay McNeely's "Blow Big Jay," Joe Liggins' "Dripper's Boogie," Jim Wynn's "Blow Wynn Blow," Jimmy McCracklin's "House Rockin' Boogie," Charles Brown's "Juke Box Lil," Jimmy Witherspoon's "Lush Head Woman," Lowell Fulson's "I Love My Baby," and Jack McVea's "Swing Man." Those interested in the current swing music who want a dose of the absolute real thing would do well to pick this one up.
