Sold is the debut solo album by British singer Boy George, released in 1987, for the Virgin Music label, including the following hit singles, "Everything I Own" (UK Number 1), "Keep Me In Mind" (UK number 29), "To Be Reborn" (UK number 13), and the title track "Sold" (UK number 24).
The album was a big success in Europe, and a modest success in the UK. Things were worse in the USA because George was not able to tour and promote the record there due to drugs-related restrictions, so the record charted only in the lower regions of the U.S. Top 200, even though he was a multi-platinum artist with Culture Club in previous years. The album was instead a huge hit in Italy, where it became the artist's highest-charting and bestselling work ever - not even his band Culture Club, though extremely popular in that country, ever achieved such an outcome there. The album got good reviews, even if Virgin Records did not like the use of brass on many tracks.
