So 1987 finds Imagination struggling to regain former glories. The ear for a bassline is still here and the hiring of saxophonist, Kenny G to play on the “Cool Sax Mix” was a bit of a coup. Leee John’s voice is still as soulful as ever on this underated 80s soul/funk classic. The “Cool Mix” replaces the sax with some marimba-style keyboards.
The B-side is more uptempo and I think it was off the album, again a prominent synth bass drives this Michael Jackson inspired track. Cool and funky.
