Not long ago we featured three of the most classics songs of Boy George's Culture Club on The Record Store sister site, Classic Music Television.

Today we visit one of Boy George's more recent releases that was way too under the radar, but had a powerful message as his songs usually do. It is titled Turn 2 Dust and he's referring to the idea that hatred must turn to dust. It was released three years ago and there are still a few white sleeve vinyl copies available that also include the single titled Go Your Own Way. Turn it up and enjoy! GC

Just below are two additional demo versions of Wake Up And Live. The first take below, seems to channel a bit of James Brown from the countdown of the downbeat onto a couple of hardly noticeable grunt and scream nuances throughout the recording. It's tight, yet freely soulful and funky reggae at it's finest.
