Fine Cuts: The Best Of MARMALADE out on Salvo on September 5th.

  Best known for their UK number 1 cover of The Beatles ‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La Da’ and the major US hit ‘Reflections Of My Life’, the Best of Marmalade set is packed with numerous extras. The album comes fully remastered for the finest possible sound quality. Presented in a stylish double digi-pack with 12-page booklet, it contains rare photographs plus a comprehensive overview of Marmalade’s career written by band members Jnr (William) Campbell and Dean Ford.

Scottish group Marmalade formed originally formed in 1961 and are best known for their UK number one cover of the The Beatles ‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La Da’ and the major US hit ‘Reflections Of My Life’. 

These hits are featured on their new album “Fine Cuts” , which showcases a total of 45 tracks, also including I See The Rain’, ‘Cousin Norman’, ‘My Little One’ and many more… 

Anyone who ever heard Marmalade play at clubs like the Marquee would know that there is a lot more to Marmalade than the hits ‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da’ and ‘Reflections of My Life’.

Here we find 45 tracks which typify what ‘The Marms’ were all about. There are some great rock tracks like Graham’s ‘Empty Bottles’ and ‘Can You Help Me (very much influenced by the style of Crosby, Stills & Nash / Santana, etc who were everyone’s heroes in the late ‘60’s). 

There are also some lovely soft-rock titles that really show off the vocal harmonies, and a great version of Dylan’s ‘I Shall be Released’. Fine Cuts is the Best Of Marmalade!”

Junior Campbell – 2011

“We were influenced by many types of music and through all of our recordings runs the thread of quality musicianship. We had some fun times as a group and some of it I still remember. I hope you enjoy “Fine Cuts” as much as I did.”
