Ultimate Boney M. – Long Versions & Rarities, Volume 2 is the second of a series of Boney M. recordings, gathering the original 12" versions, non-album tracks and alternate versions of the group's recordings. Volume 2 sums up the years 1980-83, a period which saw a decline in the group's popularity, and the group's charismatic dancer Bobby Farrell being replaced with singer Reggie Tsiboe in 1982. Of the 11 selected tracks, 9 of them are previously unreleased on CD.
