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.

Meat Loaf is known for his size (at times over 300 pounds) and manic stage presence and has suffered from a number of health problems and injuries. 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. Subsequent albums were far less successful, with the exception of the 1992 sequel album Bat Out Of Hell 2: Back Into Hell which reunited Meat Loaf and Steinman and sold over 10 million copies [1] (http://www.canoe.ca/JamMusicArtistsS/steinman_jim.html). 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. Featuring melodramatic songs and arrangements by Steinman and bombastic production by Todd Rundgren, it was a huge commercial and critical success, ultimately selling over 30 million copies worldwide, and spawning several hit singles including "Paradise by the Dashboard Light", "Two out of Three Ain't Bad" and "You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth".

He started his career as an actor in musicals such as Hair, and came to national attention with a featured role in The Rocky Horror Show. His first LP was Meat Loaf & Stoney (1969).
