"Don't let the April 28 posting deter you. With all due respect, it was based on the 20 minute Amazon clip, NOT a viewing of the actual DVD.
I purchased the European (PAL) version of this DVD last fall (Virgin Records has a tendancy to release the good stuff in Europe first, then it comes to the U.S.). Based on the cover art and Amazon description, this is the U.S/Canada version (i.e., Region 1) of the European release. Thus, it is the COMPLETE video collection PLUS the A Kiss Across the Ocean concert.
It is an excellent compilation with all of the classic music videos and more. I had never seen the videos for Victims, Mistake No. 3 (check out that GIANT wedding cake!) and The Medal Song.

01. Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?
02. Time (Clock Of The Heart)
03. I'll Tumble For Ya

Very, Extremely Pleased With This Release

"Culture Club fans, run out and get this DVD when it comes out. It is so nice to see the Culture Club videos from the early 80's. Unlike a lot of other compilations (most recenly Peter Gabriel's "Play"), the producers of the DVD didn't screw with the track list. The videos appear on the DVD in order of release date, at least I think they do. The DVD opens up with "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me," which is followed up by the video for "Time (Clock of the Heart)." It is really great seeing the video for "Time" because it seems like this video hasn't been played on VH-1 Classic or other video outlets as much as some of the other videos over the years.
The videos from the first few albums were very influenced by Japanese Culture, most namely, "Miss Me Blind," "Love is Love," and "It's A Miracle." In the video for "War Song," George is wearing red hair and by the video "Move Away," George is sporting short hair. The new (1998/1999) videos are also included. "I Just Want To Be Loved" is a really great song with a reggae beat.
Yes, the DVD does include the concert "A Kiss Across The Ocean." It's nice to finally have this on DVD. Before the show starts you can see the many Culture Club fans dressed as George or various members of the group. The concert was much more simple than concerts of today or even a Duran Duran concert back in the day. The stage was small and intimate. There wasn't a huge video screen or special effects, George and the band and Helen Terry doing their thing.
Another cool extra is Culture Club Then and Now. There is an interview with the whole group. George is sporting a large hat and dreads. He has been sporting a bald look with paint as of late so it's hard to tell when this interview was recorded, maybe at their last reunion. I'm guessing the interview is from 1998 era? George is wearing the same hat that he wears in the "I Just Want To Be Loved" video. It's a great DVD and a lot of time and effort was put into it. The video quality looks about the same, it is not quite as sharp as I expected."
Yes, it IS a video compiliation

"This DVD includes 17 music videos, including three from their reunion album, "Don't Mind If I Do". The 1983 concert is also included, as an extra feature, making this a great value. I love blue-eyed soul, and Boy George is one of the best in the genre."
The bird has flown.....

"I'd walk ten thousand miles to obtain this collection of greats.
This DVD is a must for the Culture Club / Pop Music fan. The sound is extreme to the degree of tears, this resoration is grand and over-the-top. The imagery is as clear as the blue sky. You'll find all these great moments in time preserved better than the originals. Such a great transfer.
Also note, the track / video listings are accurately chronological. "Do You Really..." starts off the fun and you're crying by the time "Cold Shoulder" fades to black..... I've always been a fan of accuracy when dealing with compilations. That's done to perfection here.
Special treats were "The Medal Song", "God Thank You Woman" and "Cold Shoulder". I'd not had the intense pleasure to view these gems until I purchased this DVD. I found myself "whisked" back to a time of great music and imagery. Some compositions just don't ever get dated.
The short interview session is a gem as well. To see the group interact in a mundane way makes the music that much more esoteric.
"A Kiss Across The Ocean.." is nicely transferred too. The sound and picture quality is superb.
Clutching to my lipstick traces, don't make Mistake No. 4, purchase this DVD for your 'spiritualtainment'."
