5.0 out of 5 stars No Imagination needed...., 9 Nov 2008

For many, this band were the laughing stock of the 80's. Not for me and a lot of others. This is a unique album and there has been nothing like it before or since. Tony Swain and Steve Jolly created something special with their unique sinth bass style. I'm in my mid 40's now and still listen to this one regularly. It's one of my all time favourite albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 'smoochie' disco sound of the 80s!, 30 Oct 2007
By 
FAMOUS NAME (UNITED KINGDOM) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
The superb sound of the 80s here with 'Imagination', who amazingly managed to top their debut album with 'In The Heat Of The Night'! This was the 'smoochie' disco sound that they made popular back then at the turn of the decade, with hits like the title song and 'All Night Lovin''. Their album material is every bit as good as their singles. 'Just An Illusion' might have been their highest charting position, but 'Music And Lights' was their fastest selling single; on the week 'Captain Sensible' made the biggest leap to number one with 'Happy Talk', 'Imagination' had made one of the fastest climbers with this song! Some of the smallest mistakes can often lead to major consequences; if 'Imagination' had released 'Music And Lights' as their first single instead of their second from this album, I feel sure that this would most definitely have given them that elusive number one they had been looking for - however, as it turned out, this would become the 'peak' of their chart success.

This album includes four great chart hits, and they released some sensational 12" mixes of these titles. Leee Jon's voice will always be the unique sound of the very early 80s.

This album originally only included the first eight tracks.

Yes this really was the best album Imagination produced along with the swain & Jolley production team it contained a number of Hits that really sum up the music at the time, Thier second album,with Body talk Thier first and Scandalous third it's really In the Heat of the Night that is the best album. Amazingly even after all this time it has the ability to get you singin along and all songs on this album are able to hold Thier own as an single. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite CDs, 2 Sep 2011

As my vinyl copy of this record was wearing out, I bought this CD. I have been playing this record for nearly 30 years and never get tired of it. Easily the best Imagination CD, and that means it is better than all of the Best Of collections you can buy. These days I prefer the non-singles 'One More Love' and 'All I Want To Know' - but every song is a classic.
