Imagination were a trio from the U.K popular in the 1980’s. They released their first album in 1981 and had a hit with “Body Talk.” The group’s second album released in 1982 was their most successful and included the U.S. R&B and UK chart hit “Just an Illusion”.

The group consisted of Singer/keyboardist Leee John, Ashley Ingram, a guitarist/bassist and drummer Errol Kennedy.

Formed in 1981, Imagination released “Body Talk” as a single. The track reached number 4 in the UK Singles Chart in July 1981, selling 250,000 copies in the UK and spending 18 weeks in the Top 50. They had two more hit singles that year, “In and Out of Love” (September 1981) and “Flashback” (November 1981), both of which peaked at number 16, all from their debut album, also called Body Talk.

Their biggest hit, “Just an Illusion”, peaked at number two in March 1982 This was accompanied by a sell-out concert tour of Europe, with 22 dates in the UK.

Following this, the success of the group in the UK waned, but they continued to perform, tour and record. In 1987, they were signed to RCA Records, but by the end of that year Ingram and Kennedy left the band. John with new members, Nat Augustin and Peter Royer, continued and recorded a last album, Fascination of the Physical, in 1992. The band split in 1992.
