Product Description & Reviews

OK, the title could use a bit of Boy George's flamboyance, but the box is impressive-it's the definitive look at one of the most popular, charismatic, controversial bands of the New Wave! Demos (Put It Down; Next 2 You), remixes (Church of the Poison Mind; Vanity Case), alternate versions and unreleased songs join the hits Do You Really Want to Hurt Me; Karma Chameleon; Time (Clock of the Heart); I'll Tumble 4 Ya; Miss Me Blind, and more. 73 tracks and a 72-page book packed with pix! Those old enough to remember the '70s may have thought they'd seen some strange things in fab culture's relentless drive toward the Different. But a soul-embracing band of English musical chameleons fronted by a bitchy, ever-quotable drag queen? David Bowie aside, that notion simply required a whole new decade to frame properly. Ironically, while Culture Club's stateside success was meteorically brief (though yielding a half dozen Top 10 singles), they ended up one of the most indelibly iconic acts of the '80s, thanks to the larger-than-life antics of Boy George and those three magic letters: MTV. This four-disc anthology never strays far from the beguiling, egocentric singer or his fetishes, musical and otherwise. Brimming with demos, a few cheeky outtakes, and a wealth of de rigueur remixes (including a full disc of 2002 dubs by Richie "Drumhead" Stevens) and footnoted with a colorfully rambling, drag-centric scrapbook that passes for liner notes, it's also a set that helps scrub away George's bluster and mascara to find the innocent fan's soul--and shrewd record collector-club DJ sensibility--that lies at the heart of Culture Club's music. It may be obsessive for the uninitiated, but seldom obtuse, while CC faithful should find it a newly annotated gospel. --Jerry McCulley
