There is a box below the caption labeled "Appearing;", which is blank. This is The Marmalade's current lineup, with original member Knight sharing the bill with Newman, Holmes and Taylor. The Marmalade was formed in Glasgow in 1961 when teens William Campbell (later Junior Campbell) and Patrick Fairley formed the Gaylords. They played local clubs virtually for free but, after some personnel changes - most notably the addition of singer Dean Ford (real name Thomas McAleese), bassist Graham Knight and drummer Alan Whitehead - found popularity in Scotland as Dean Ford & The Gaylords. Their most notable gig was at London's Marquee Club, supporting the Action and Pink Floyd, in 1965. The band changed their name to The Marmalade in 1967 and scored hits with a late-1968 cover of the Beatles' Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, which topped the U.K. charts, and 1969's Reflections of My Life, which went to No. 1 in the United States and United Kingdom. However, their commercial success came with a price. Their sound was originally influenced by American soul and progressive and folk rock, but their labels forced them to come up with more radio-friendly music; this, combined with stress in the band and a change in their sound, led to the band shedding many of its members. But The Marmalade was reorganized in the mid-1970s, with Knight and Whitehead at the core surrounded by new blood. They released one more top ten hit in the U.K. in 1977, the appropriately named Falling Apart at the Seams. The band has since transformed into an oldies act that continues to tour as of this biography. Lightly creased. Folded in eighths. Lightly worn along seams. Otherwise in fine condition.
