(5 out of 5 stars)
"In this sequel to the first box set, "100 Boleros de Amor",Vol.2 also features a long list of latino music giants, recorded by Mexico's legendary "Orfeon" label in what can be called as "the biggest bolero compilation ever put together and re-issued. Manolo Munoz, Bola de Nieve, Alberto Vazquez, Sonia Von Kebler "La Unica", Lucho Gatica, Los 4 Hermanos Silva, Celio Gonzalez, Los Dandys, Maria Victoria, Olga Guillot,Los Tres Diamantes, Los Galantes, Ton~a La Negra, Los Tres Ases, (Exitos)De Los Panchos, etc. are all in this mega-compilation, singing superb all time romantic music in its preferred form, the immortal "BOLERO". Just like Volume 1, this is a must buy for all bolero and latin music fans!"
Excelent example of Latin Music in the 60's.

"Being a long-time fan of boleros, I couldn't pass this up when I was perusing box sets of Latin music on this site. I was already familiar with many of the songs, though not being from Mexico and only 45, was not familiar with many of the artists, not even the token gringo. Los Panchos have been a favorite since I could walk, and there are some Panchos hits in the box, but here was a great opportunity to hear some of the same songs I know and love performed by various artists. Don't take the three stars to mean I don't like the set, I do. It just means there is nothing here in the realm of musical greatness. There are a several artists presented besides Los Panchos I like very much, such as Los Tres Reyes and Daniel Santos. But some of the recordings are so cheesy that I was amused in addition to being entertained. I like the format of the set where the better-known or more prolific artists are allotted one song on each CD, while those lesser-known or who were one-hit-wonders are given a slot toward the end of one of the CDs. If you are a real bolero fan, you will find much to like here. So what if a few songs don't measure up? With 100 songs presented, you can't go wrong and you sure can't beat the price."
