Wisely, this collection focusses its attention on those early years of the band and pretty much all their best tracks from their golden period are here. Personally, I could not accept a 'best of' without 'The Last Time' but that is a minor quibble seeing as the groups best ever ballad 'I'll Always Love You (but don't look back)' has been included - something that is sadly unusual. Also of interest, is the inclusion of two non-Imagination songs! 'Soul Street' and 'Backtrackin'' are actually by Jolly and Swain and were released as an unsuccessful single 'back in the day'. Still, they are in the style of the group and may have been included here as a bonus for collectors of the 'R&B' sound - 'its got to be about the product', remember!
Don't think for a minute that Imagination never made another good record after say 1985 - they were just never as innovative or unique again. With declining sales and the failure of the 'Sunshine' single, The 'Trilogy' album was shelved. Thereafter, most of the bands latter years were spent 'searching' for a producer with a 'sound' that could bring back the 'Music And Lights'. Sadly, they never found one but with this collection and a hatful of hits under their belts they have left us quite a legacy...
The CD arrived super fast- way faster than I expected,
I was so pleased!!!
But if your a casual fan its a good place to start.
Charismatic and flamboyant, this band had a hat full of hits in the early 80s. Super smooth ballots like 'in the heat of the night' and the amazing 'body talk', dance floor club classics such as 'flash back, 'music and lights' and the brilliant 'just an illusion'.
There are other quite catchy album tracks here as well. All in all, even now, this is pretty good stuff.
