"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!"
Can't Beat The Price, Pt. 2

"I saw this box set advertised here at the same time I bought Vol. 1, so decided to jump in and get the whole set at once. Like its sister, 100 Boleros De Amor Vol. 2 is filled with lots of wonderful songs, some familiar and some not, which are performed by a huge variety of artists, some familiar and some not. Some of the artists whose recordings are featured here are also to be found on Vol 1, however Vol 2 features several who were not on the first, most notably Agustin Lara. Some Lara compositions performed by others are also presented here. Three stars does not mean the set is not good, it means there is nothing outstanding on it. Some of the recordings are so cheesy I laughed out loud when I heard them, but even so, they should be listened to in the spirit of the times in which they were originally recorded. This is old stuff and the instruments and recording techniques are just not what they are today. Despite my moments of mirth, if you enjoy bolero as much as I, then you should own this as there are 100 songs to choose from and once again, you can't beat the price."
