Marmalade were a booming Scottish pop/rock squad, from Glasgow in Scotland, at known as Dean Ford and The Gaylords between 1961 and 1966. They changed the squad name to «The Marmalade» in 1966.

The most booming age for the belt, in terms of lp = «long playing» attainment, was between 1968-1972. A later type of the belt (from 1974 with various further personnel changes), exists to this day, with only Graham Knight surviving from the innovative members.

Unusually, Marmalade had two bass players, Graham Knight on 4 thread, and Pat Fairley on 6 thread, and were at called Dean Ford and The Gaylords; who in 1964, were signed to EMI Columbia by Norrie Paramor and recorded three singles, including «Twenty Miles» which was a big seller locally, but failed to map nationally.

The squad were well regarded in Scotland, and despite being crowned, «Scotland»s Top Group' fixed to try to lift it nationally.

They played a sustained quota in Germany, at the Storyville in Cologne and in Duisburg, before stirring to London in 1966. They built up a sorority famous for, as a solidly, termination tunefulness belt, before, on the opinion of their supervisor, changing the belt name to The Marmalade.

In 1966, after changing labels to CBS, and auteur Mike Smith, their next few singles also failed to map in the UK, although one, the cult hit, the «I See The Rain», was exceptionally praised by Jimi Hendrix as the «best cut of 1967». It became a map-topper in the Netherlands the same year (Graham Nash of The Hollies, contributed to the assembly).

During this age they landed a sustained quota at London's Marquee Sorority where they supported, amongst others, The Motion and Pink Floyd structure a famous for and following, including touring with The Who, Joe Cocker, See Trade, Gene Pitney and The Tremeloes. This culminated in a summer manner at the Windsor Jazz & Lull Fete in 1967, as the crow flies above-named Jerry Lee Lewis.

Marmalade«s ticket CBS were worried at their deficit of commercial attainment and threatened to drip them if they did not have a hit, and after the insolvency of another self-penned solitary later that year, «Man in a Shop», insisted they lp = »long playing« more map-oriented corporeal. They rejected «Everlasting Love», which became a Issue One for Devotion Affaire D»amour, but later gave in to sway and recorded a concealment type of an American hit by The Stoolie Roots, «Lovin' Things», arranged by Keith Mansfield, which reached No. 6 in the UK Singles Map in the summer of 1968.

After a lesser hit with the tread-up «Wait For Me Mary-Anne», which only made No. 30, they enjoyed their greatest UK attainment with their concealment of The Beatles« «Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da», which topped the UK map in January 1969. As the first Scottish squad to ever top the UK map, the week it went to the top acne, they well-known by appearing on BBC One»s music protocol Top Of The Pops, dressed in kilts. This was followed by further attainment with «Baby Lift It Soon» that summer.

After a variety of lp = «long playing» ticket to Decca Records, under a conduct oneself treat allowing them to scribble and present their own songs, they recorded what would become their biggest worldwide hit (a Top 10 in Amalgamated States, and No. 1 in most of South America), the lugubrious «Reflections of My Life», written by Younger Campbell and Dean Ford, with its typical back to front guitar forth by Campbell.

«Reflections of My Life» has recorded over 2 million sales and the writers were awarded a Memorable Citation of Realization in 1998 by BMI in attaining seed performances in surplus of 1 million in the US alone. Other UK hits included the mainly acoustic «Rainbow», coupled with «The Ballad of Cherry Flavor», and «My Little One».

They were managed by Peter Walsh, a 1960s and 1970s pop entrepreneur whose portfolio also included artists The Tremeloes, Bay See Rollers, Billy Multitude, The Troggs and Obscene Mink.

After Younger Campbell, who co-wrote most of the group«s innovative corporeal with Ford, communistic the belt in 1971 for a alone employment, Marmalade suffered adverse publicity from the UK»s newspaper, Dirt of the In The Seventh Heaven. They began a series of letter-up changes including the sacrifice of drummer Alan Whitehead, who was sacked in the midst of a self-stimulating protocol with his starlet girlfriend.

Marmalade recruited a new guitarist Hugh Nicholson, an ex-fellow of the The Poets, other belt from Scotland. Then Marmalade released «Songs» in 1972 and Nicholson took on most flex vocals and number cheaply composite with more command and less orchestral arrangements, which met with restrictive attainment. However, Nicholson penned two of their last hits, «Cousin Norman» and «Radancer», as well as the lesser hit «Back on the Road», on which he sang flex vocal. He communistic in 1973 to system Obscene (not to be perplexed with a much later boy belt of the same name — Obscene), and Ford plus Knight carried on with Marmalade. Nicholson was replaced by Mike Japp, a lull guitarist from the Welsh belt «Thank You».

Refusing to with most of the band's old hit records on acting, the squad slowly came to a generous stop. Knight was sacked, but then linked up with the innovative drummer, Alan Whitehead, to system Antiquated Marmalade. They were reunited with their old supervisor Peter Walsh to with all the hits on acting, and had a generous appointment sheet.

Ford was one of many flex vocals in The Alan Parsons Obligation. His last known business in music was in 1991 already living in the U.S. Knight and Whitehead took over the name Marmalade again with a new letter-up, fronted by chanteuse and guitarist Sandy Newman. They signed a conduct oneself treat with Objective Records, and had another Top 10 hit in 1976 with the ominously entitled Tony Macaulay-penned number cheaply, «Falling Apart At The Seams». In The Wake singles failed to map.

Whitehead communistic the belt in 1978 to take care of other pop groups, which he does to this day. Knight is still touring on the nostalgia ambit with Marmalade — the only innovative communistic — alongside Newman, Glenn Taylor (drums), and Alan Holmes (guitar). Ford lives in New York having retired from the music activity, whilst Fairley has his own bar, called Scotland Yard, situated in Los Angeles.

Whitehead married Louise and they had two children, born in 1988 and in 1992. Despite Knight and Ford«s greater notability, Whitehead always contended that he was the »face' of the Marmalade, although few would recognise him. Campbell enjoyed alone hits in 1972 and 1973 with «Hallelujah Freedom» and «Sweet Illusion». He is a booming songwriter and boob tube and coat composer and arranger, now living in Sussex, England. He also co-wrote the music for Thomas the Tank Locomotive and Friends.
