I wasn't really on track with Soul and Pop Soul music in 1982. My focus was on the alternative bands lighting up the charts. But the Soul and R&B was around and in the charts and on reflection was pretty damned good. Imagination were a band I barely noticed then. Even though they were everywhere at the time.
They were a trio, and were huge in 1982 and fronted by the flamboyant Leee John who I remember for his big headband and big trousers. Just an Illusion was a number 2 hit in March of the year and deservedly so. It seemed designed for cheesy nightclubs and I've never been a huge one for cheesy nightclubs. But this was classy, state of the art, cheesy nightclub fare.
