At worst-- : the best of Boy George and Culture Club by Boy George( Recording )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The success of "The Crying Game" marked a comeback for Boy George, especially in the U.S., where his solo career had never taken hold beyond the dance clubs, and SBK (distributor of his label, Virgin) took advantage of his resurgence by compiling this 75-minute, 19-track album, which combines his former group Culture Club's biggest hits with selections from his solo work. The ten Culture Club tracks are of a piece, from 1982's "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" (which here leads off with an ominous voice intoning, "Popularity breeds contempt") to "Love Is Love," which wasn't a hit but is a better choice than the missing "War Song," which was. The solo tracks are a more mixed batch, and not only because Top 40 U.K. hits like "Keep Me in Mind," "Sold," and "To Be Reborn" are missing. They often rely on loud percussion tracks that strand Boy George's tender tenor somewhere in the distance. He remains most effective on rhythmic ballads, whether "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me," "Everything I Own" (his chart-topping first U.K. solo hit), or "The Crying Game." ~ William Ruhlmann, AMG

Why drag? by Magnus Hastings( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over a decade, Magnus Hastings has been photographing the world's greatest drag superstars and asking each of them a simple question: Why drag? The result is this mesmerizing volume in which the queens strut their stuff and reflect on their shared passion through a mixture of quips and philosophizing. Subjects include icons of reality TV and underground drag royalty, and photographs range from the divine to the trashy. Featuring the likes of Bianca Del Rio and Courtney Act, this collection is a beautiful celebration of drag as an art form and an exhilarating exploration of what drag means to its greatest artists

Contributions from leading writers and commentators and a photo archive all add up to as definitive a statement as one can get. Featured revolutionaries include, among others, Derek Jarman, Sappho, Harvey Milk, Pat Califia, Audre Lorde, Oscar Wilde, Marie Antoinette, Queen of France, Edward II, King of England, Marlene Dietrich, James Baldwin, Djuna Barnes and Brandon Teena

Shhh! by Nigel Kennedy Quintet( Recording )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neues Jazzalbum des klassischen Violinisten Nigel Kennedy. In seiner 2. Heimat Polen findet er immer wieder passende Mitmusiker. Auch hier besteht die Formation ausschliesslich aus erstklassigen polnischen Jazzern, das Repertoire ist aber nicht so klar greifbar. Kennedy ist und bleibt ein Grenzgänger. äManche Alben lohnten sich schon wegen eines Tracks. So eins ist 'Shhh!' des noch immer als Enfant terrible missverstandenen Ex-Klassikgeigers Nigel Kennedy, der seit Jahren (vergebens) einen musikalischen Ort sucht zwischen Fusion, Artpop und Jazz. Der Track heisst äRivermanä und ist - richtig - jener Klassiker von Nick Drake, und wie Kennedy sich rau hineintastet in dieses Stück, wie er Richard Kirbys einstiges Streicherarrangement zugleich imitiert und transzendiert, und wie Boy George (genau der!) mit ähnlicher vokaler Rauheit die Melancholie von 'Riverman' ins herbstlich Fahle tunkt: Das ist Weltklasse. Auch der Rest des Albums schimmert ... hübsch mitternächtlich mit seinen blue notes, dem Barpiano und dem überblasenen Saxofonä (www.kulturnews.de)
