AllMusic Review by

Volume 2 of Laurie's 20 Great Love Songs of the 50's & 60's starts out strong with the Petula Clark classic "Downtown" (not really a love song, though). From there the listener is bombarded with enough Dion to warrant the renaming of the compilation "20 Great Love Songs of the 50's & 60's, Many of Which Are Performed by Dion". That said, there's some fun stuff here, much of which doesn't appear on the usual genre comps, but it's a little one-sided and spotty to recommend, even for a budget-priced overview.
