Burning The Ground: DjPaulT's 80's and 90's Remixes

80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Culture Club – White Boy (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on November 4th, 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on June 14, 2010. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon Super 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“White Boy” is the debut single by english new wave band Culture Club taken from the album Kissing To Be Clever. Although the song failed to reach the US or UK Top 100, Front man Boy George was still happy because “5000 people bought my song and didn’t even know me.”

The 12″ version of “White Boy” is a different mix than waht appeared on Kissing To Be Clever. Oddly the album version was titled “dance nix”.

    Awesome, thanks v much. 🙂 Can’t go wrong with a bit of Culture Club.

    Can’t remember if I’ve asked you before, but have you heard the track where they’re trying to do a demo of Victims, but they all start arguing with each other and walking out in a huff? It’s on one of the box sets….

    That is so funny to listen to 🙂 They called it “Shirley Temple Moment” on the box set
