  • FROM LUXURY TO HEARTACHE 1986

     

      

    1. Move Away
    2. I Pray
    3. Work On Me Baby
    4. Gusto Blusto
    5. Heaven's Children
    6. God Thank You Woman
    7. Reasons
    8. Too Bad
    9. Come Clean
    10. Sexuality
    11. Move Away - Extended Version
    12. God Thank You Woman - Extended Version
    13. Sexuality - Extended

    This album was branded a failure when it was released back in 1986, mainly due to Boy George's bad press at the time and the fact it didn't produce a string of hit singles like the group's previous 3 albums did. However, From Luxury To Heartache is a collection of clever, catchy pop songs that can lift you up from start to finish. From the brilliant opener, Move Away, through to the wacky Gustoblusto and the heart-felt God Thank You Woman, this thoroughly under-valued album is Culture Club on true form. There will never be another Colour By Numbers- but this is the next best thing!

    1. Move Away
    2. Sexuality

  • WAKING UP WITH THE HOUSE ON FIRE 1984

    Tell-all books and TV shows later explained that Culture Club was slowly imploding under the weight of intra-band tensions and Boy George's increasing drug addiction, but upon itsrelease in 1984, WAKING UP WITH THE HOUSE ON FIRE just sounded strained and odd. Listening to the album in hindsight, its charms are more apparent, and the discomfort of its creation is readily audible in the subtle tension of songs like "Dangerous Man" and the sweeping ballad "Mistake Number Three". George is in fine voice, and the band's playing is as smooth and relaxed as always, but there's no denying that the songwriting is uneven--the plainly imbecilic "The War Song" was a horrid choice for the first single--and there's an unsettling sense of listening to the psychic collapse of a once-promising talent. Waking up with the house on fire indeed...

    Despite naysayers who assumed Culture Club were a nine-day wonder, their second album, 1983's COLOUR BY NUMBERS, not only outsold their debut in both Britain and the US, it's a far better album. KISSING TO BE CLEVER was a canny blend of pop and soul, but its occasional cryptic archness kept it at something of an emotional distance. From the gospelly piano ballad opener "That's the Way"--which like several tracks here features sterling backing vocals from Helen Terry--to the moving and dramatic "Victims", that's not a problem here. Even the enormous hits "Karma Chameleon" and "Church of the Poison Mind"--possibly Culture Club's best-ever single--have asoulful ease and swing missing from the debut, although they perhaps lack the emotional heft of the abovementioned songs.
    As with KISSING TO BE CLEVER, American fans should know that this CD features the original British mix and track sequence.

    12. Romance Beyond The Alphabet

    It can be hard to remember with memories of drug busts and increasingly wacky outfits clouding the issue, but the reason Culture Club became as huge as they did was that their debut album, 1982's KISSING TO BE CLEVER, is an unabashedly commercial and often brilliant amalgam of American R&B and British chart pop. Remember, "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" wasa UK hit before anyone even knew who Boy George was, and for good reason. Even though nothing on the album matches thattranscendent single, the pop-reggae-soul-dance grooves are always entertaining and often, as on "I'm Afraid Of Me" and the spooky "White Boys Can't Control It", simply excellent.
    American fans should be aware that this CD contains the original UK edition of the album, which doesn't include the hit single "Time (Clock of the Heart)" and has a somewhat less satisfying running order.
