Imagination – Burnin’ Up (1981)



‘Body Talk’ you say; oh I so easily relapse into nostalgia. Imagination was formed by Leee John and Ashley Ingram. Their biggest hit by far was the Jolley & Swain produced title track off their 1981 debut album Body Talk. The well executed slow jam would sell more than 250,000 copies in the UK alone. But its success drowned out something far more special. Hidden on the the album is ‘Burnin’ Up’. The title may be trite, but the song was unbelievably fresh. Leee John’s work on the keyboards wouldn’t have sounded out of place on a DJ’s piano house set from a decade later. A banging proto-house tune. Have a great weekend.
