This compilation picks up from where Vol 1 left off and covers the years 1950 to 1952. The Dutch Swing College Band was by that time rapidly rising in popularity and their recordings were finding their way into the UK. They had emerged as a good swinging Trad band and proof of their reputation today is that the CDs Lake have released of their material have sold well. The name is kept alive by the fact that the band still exists and regularly tours the UK. Of interest here is the presences of the legendary New Orleans Soprano Sax player, Sidney Bechet, on some tracks.
