In 1966 they had five top ten singles with 50m weeks in the charts, the success gained more momentum with African sounding drums of a song called Zabadak which charted for 14 weeks at number three followed up with Okay at number four for eleven weeks. The band received the Golden Otto award in Germany being the third biggest record purchasing nation in the world. The Silver was taken by the Beach Boys and the Bronze by the Stones.
With the sounding of the flamenco guitars and the cracking from the whip. The Legend of Xanadu was born and became a number one hit charting for twelve weeks. Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich are now touring with The Sixties Invasion, their much praised stage performance is as dynamic as ever and truly one of the best if not the best vocal band to come out of the Sixties era. To believe is to See!!
Marmalade On New Year’s Day 1969, Marmalade began a month-long reign at Number One with ‘Ob-la-di Ob-la-da’. Their consequent headlining slots on Top Of The Pops marked not only the high summer of Scottish rock, but the climax of a hard-won personal victory traceable to the struggles of Glasgow’s Dean Ford and the Gaylord’s, who, becoming too hot for mid-1960s Clydeside to hold, began a new chapter with a change of name to Marmalade.
1967 finished with a smash sur le continent in psychedelic ‘I See the Rain’. Tenacity was further rewarded the next summer when Marmalade cracked the British Top Ten at last with ‘Lovin’ Things’. This – and ‘Wait For Me Marianne ‘ – paved the way for ‘Ob-la-di Ob-la-da’ and the protraction of a lengthy international chart run with ‘Baby Make It Soon’ and self-penned – ‘Reflections Of My Life’, another million-seller – and a major US chartbuster.
