Before moving to London and changing their name to Marmalade, the group was originally known as Dean Ford & The Gaylords. The Glasgow based quintet enjoyed considerable success on the Scottish club circuit between 1961 and 1967.

Described as being unpretentious and irresistably commerical, the group scored in the UK charts in May 1968 with 'Lovin' Things' and later, number one with the Marmalade anthem, an opportunist cover of the Beatles classic, 'Ob La Di Ob La Da'.

After several success with CBS, Marmalade moved to Decca and became the first New Musical Express UK chart toppers of the seventies by replacing Rolf Harris' 'Two Little Boys' with the unforgettable 'Reflections Of My Life'.

With their unique harmonies and dynamic live performances, they have delighted audiences and the record buying public from the mid-sixties through to the Millennium and have achieved multi-million selling No.1 records - Ob La Di & Reflections, proving that Marmalade are not only a good time band but also a musical entity capable of transcending all types of music.

Since the heady days of the 60's, Marmalade, although having gone through various incantations, have always retained their Scottish roots and remain one of the world's finest acts.

Marmalade have done for Scotland what the legendary group did for England: Put their native country back on the musical map!
