Tuesday 12-inch Flashback: ‘In and Out of Love’

Remember Imagination? I really loved that group’s debut LP, “Body Talk,” from 1981. This track is one of the reasons why.

UBM. I'm really diggin your blog-read it every day. I have a problem with downloading pics, sound bites, etc. Used to be able to access this stuff. Can you help me troubleshoot? Thanks Man!

The single is pretty hot, I'll give you that. But what in the holy hell is going on in that picture? Smdh :)

I'm barely computer literate, anon. But my readers tend to be very bright and helpful. Maybe one of them can step up and advise.

I sure hope some one will step up to the plate and help me so I can once again look at pics and listen to bites. I've tried everything to no avail. I wanna hear some Imagination - baby! Desparate in Denver

Great choice, UBM. The first three songs from that LP are classic. Still listen to them today.

Can't forget "Just An Illusion," either-another one of my personal favorites.

^ "So Good, So Right" was always my favorite cut off that album.

re; your sidebar--I love JOhnny Hartman! And that really was Sammy Davis Jr introducing him?

I don't remember this song. I have their greatest hits (yeah, the cover's just as wack!) and this cut is on it. I guess I just skipped right over it; not feeling it much.

My absolute favorite song of theirs is the mostly instrumental "Burnin' Up."

"Just an Illusion" was always my favorite Imagination joint.

Undercover Black Man said...

^ Ain't it funny how all those Imagination joints were similar-sounding... yet we're all very particular about our favorite one?

I don't think I've ever heard of this group before. Will check them out.

Blew my mind too, Kellybelle.

Sammy was KILLING the vibes. He didn't just grow up in show biz, he seems like he mastered everything. Too bad none of these Sammy movies look like they are gonna happen. Fascinating guy.

he can't be praised enough.

They look like a rogue contingent of the "300" but we likes.
