Boy George and Culture Club At Worst…The Best of Boy George and Culture Club (SBK/ERG) Wielding a persona inspired by equal parts Oscar Wilde, Marc Bolan, and Elton John, Boy George rode Britain’s early-’80s new romantic wave to become everybody’s favorite post-punk pixie. While this set is infinitely more enjoyable for its documentation of Culture Club’s soulful eclecticism than for George’s later dance-floor crooning, it does paint a fully rounded picture of a true pop eccentric.
