The Marmalade

Profile:
Scottish pop-rock group. Formed in east Glasgow in 1961, as the Gaylords, then as Dean Ford And The Gaylords from 1963 to 1966, when they settled on "Marmalade" as their name. With their tight harmonies well regarded in Scotland, the band earned a long residency at London's Marquee Club beginning in March 1967. Their most successful period came between 1968 to 1972, when they became the first Scottish act to land a #1 hit on the UK charts with 1969's cover of The Beatles 'Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da'. Original members began drifting away in early 1970's, the band evolved with many changes. With the departure of Graham Knight in September 2010, no original Marmalade members remained in the band. though they still exist touring the nostalgia circuit.

Marmalade first began as Dean Ford & the Gaylords. My favourite song as Dean Ford & the Gaylords is "He's a Good Face (But He's Down and Out". As Marmalade, my favourite is "Baby Make it soon". I got my cousin hooked on these guies while I was away on holidays in the US and he loves their music. Marmalade are always easy to listen to on a bad day. Their songs put a smile on my face. Rock on, Marmalade.
