Marmalade (band)

Marmalade were a Scottish pop group, highly successful during the early 1970s. Their first hit record was a cover of the Beatles' "Ob-la-di", predictably performed in orange suits, which went to #1 in the UK charts. The harmony-based band went on to produce a string of early 1970s hits including "Reflections of My Life" and "Rainbow", using the lead vocals of Dean Ford and the higher harmonies of bass player Graham Knight. They toured extensively and even gave rise to a cocktail - the Marmaladdie. The band was managed by Peter Walsh, a 60s and 70s pop entrepreneur whose portfolio also included artists like the Bay City Rollers, Billy Ocean, the Troggs and Blue Mink.

When pianist Junior Campbell left the band to become a "one hit wonder", Marmalade began a series of line-up changes including the loss of drummer Alan Whitehead and suffered poor publicity from the UK's News of the World. An attempt to fit into the UK's move to "progressive" music met with limited success.

The group still survives today, primarily because of the leadership of Graham Knight.

The group still survives today, primarily because of the leadership of Graham Knight. The self-titled album released by Nuyorican Soul in 1996 (check date) included original tracks as well as cover versions of songs by the performers they were working with, such as Sweet Tears (Roy Ayers), and Runaway, originally sung by Lolleatta Holloway with the Salsoul Orchestra, here sung by India, featuring musicians from the original recording of 1985. An attempt to fit into the UK's move to "progressive" music met with limited success. Musicians who took part in this project include Vince Montana, Roy Ayers, George Benson, Jocelyn Brown, Tito Puente, and members of the Salsoul Orchestra. When pianist Junior Campbell left the band to become a "one hit wonder", Marmalade began a series of line-up changes including the loss of drummer Alan Whitehead and suffered poor publicity from the UK's News of the World. Their Nuyorican Soul project sees them working extensively with real (as opposed to sampled or synthesized) musicians, in a variety of styles including Latin, disco, jazz, etc. The band was managed by Peter Walsh, a 60s and 70s pop entrepreneur whose portfolio also included artists like the Bay City Rollers, Billy Ocean, the Troggs and Blue Mink. They have also produced music together under the names Kenlou and Nuyorican Soul.

They toured extensively and even gave rise to a cocktail - the Marmaladdie. Masters At Work (MAW) are house music producers and remixers Kenny Dope Gonzalez and Little Louie Vega.
