"From the onset, beginning with the Agustin Lara penned "Noche de Ronda" the incredible, velvety voiced Javier Solis sets the table for some smooth romantic music from a different era. This is a single disc with two LP's with the result being lots of music for your buck, with the possibilities of unforgetable romance. Javier Solis is quite possibly one of the finest bolero singers to have ever walked the planet; Solis had avoice for the ages that in spite of all the great contemporary Latin singers out there as yet to be matched. This is one persons humble opinion of course. The music itself is full of lush orchestration, playing backdrop to the voice of Solis as his amazing vocals carries you back in time, before my time and probably yours, to a nostalgic Mexico. There are plenty of well known classics here including the bohemian "Vagabundo, " the simply enchanting romantic "Cuando Vuelva a Tu Lado" that creates shivers as you listen to the Spanish lyrics, and the better-than -Luis Miguel version of "Perfidia" that laments a tortured soul, "Solamente Una Vez" with it's Nelson Riddle-like orchestration that plays softly while Solis croons away, "Siboney" where Solis demonsratates the fine range of his voice as he digs deep for a resounding bellowing interpretation while sweet Vera Cruz like marimbas echo softly in the background or the often recorded "Besame Mucho" which is reflective of the often somber, melancholy character that Solis seemed to portray. This is a great disc for old and new fans of timeless Mexican music. Different than some of his other LP's in that their are no rancheras, Solis seemed to be trying a more sophisticated International flavor with equally pleasing results. There are however some mariachi tinged songs like "Imposible" and a few others that are more like what many have come to associate with Javier Solis. Another in the "Serie 2 en 1" entitled "Interpreta a Agustin Lara and Prisionero del Mar" is highly recommended although completely different in style.Perfect music for romance hearts and a soulful retreat in time."

"Aun cuando no es muy conocida esta produccion, el CD incluye varios temas con acompañamiento de orquesta. Cabe anotar que existe otro album llamado "Javier Solis con Orquesta" el cual recoge otros temas como En esta tarde gris, El mundo, Buen viaje, etc. y del cual Sony no ha programado su grabación en CD. En este CD podran encontrar dos versiones, una con orquesta y otra con mariachi, del conocido tema Cuando vuelva a tu lado. Adicionalmente incluye temas como Noche de ronda y Tres palabras de mas de 300 canciones que grabo el artista mexicano."
