This compilation from Michoacan, Mexico's Los Bukis is actually a shortened version of the double-disc 25 Exitos from Fonovisa's Iconos series issued in 2012. Though this set may not go quite as deep, there are two reasons it may be preferential: first, it contains a solid listing of album versions of singles as well as choice catalog tracks. The second is simply because as a single disc, it is appreciably less expensive. It's true that there are literally a dozen or more compilations by Los Bukis, but many of them contain filler. 20 Kilates does not, making it a decent mix set for longtime fans or a solid introduction for the newcomer.
