Eddie Kendricks took lead vocals on this track, which ended up being his last single with the group. An original member, Kendricks left The Temptations for a solo career soon after the song was released. With his replacement, Damon Harris, the Temps landed their last big hit in 1972 with "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone
," which went to #1 in the US. Kendricks had his own chart-topper in 1973 with "Keep On Truckin'
"Just My Imagination" was also the last song for group member Paul Williams, who sings the "Every night on my knees I pray," line. Williams remained on salary as an advisor, but was plagued with personal problems - he was separated from his wife, owed back taxes and was being treated for alcoholism. He committed suicide in 1973 at age 34.
