White boy - Culture Club

After scouring the basement of the Music & Video Exchange in Notting Hill Gate and finding over 40 singles, I went up to the first floor, hoping to find some more. This is the 'expensive' part of the shop, stocking mainly collectors items, but sometimes you come across some interesting bargains. Such as this one: the debut single by Culture Club!

Most people assume that their first hit 'Do you really want to hurt me' was also their debut single, but that's not true: they released two singles prior to that one. 'White boy' did not chart in any territory, although it already showcases their signature sound. You don't see this single a lot, so I was glad to find it.

My collection: 7" single no. 3966
Found: Record Exchange, London, August 5, 2009
Cost: 50p
Tracks: 'White boy' / 'Love twist'
