Well, maybe not entirely all the Marmalade a dedicated fan would need - for that, some of the original albums would be required too. But for most of us, this is an excellent selection, covering as it does every stage of the band's lengthy career.

Most folk who were around at the time will remember Marmalade as the first Scottish band to score a UK number one hit single, which they did with the Beatles song "Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da" back in 1969. It's in this collection, of course, but it's not exactly representative. There's plenty of material from the early years, before the hits came, and it's surprisingly hard rock material. Then come the big hits of the late '60s, with their lavish productions; followed by the Junior Campbell phase; then the Hugh Nicholson material; and finally the lesser-known songs from the band's later years.

Interspersed throughout the collection are plenty B-sides and album tracks: most of them are songs that won't be familiar to many of today's listeners, but there are a few surprises too, notably an interesting and worthwhile version of "Hey, Joe". Yep - the "Hey, Joe" of Jimi Hendrix fame. Marmalade started out as a rock band and, in spite of their commercial success in other styles, they never lost their dedication or ability in the rock field. It shows.

In fact, they never lost their dedication or ability in any field. They were an unusually accomplished group of musicians, and a surprising degree of precision is readily apparent in their playing and singing throughout the collection: pretty much perfect timing and pitching, in the days before these things could be corrected by stacks of electronics and software.

For those who were around at the time, this collection will be a pleasant surprise.

I always preferred Marmalde's later stuff, from Reflections onwards, so the earlier recordings for me are fairly irrelevant apart from Lovin' Things and perhaps Ob-La-Di. All the Decca recordings are great and show a greater musicianship and maturity and they were able to cut out all the covers that the earlier incarnation seemed to get bogged down with and instead relied upon self-penned songs. If you like these songs I would also refer you to recordings by Blue (not the boy band!) as there is a connection between the two bands and their first album, just called Blue is one of my favourites.

Despite a few 'cabaret' orientated songs, there are more than enough outstanding examples of top quality pop and psychedelia to satisfy lovers of late 60s/early 70s pop and rock....perhaps if the band had had the nerve to continue in the vein of 'I See The Rain,' rather than the more chart friendly pop which became their hallmark , who knows where their career path might have led them? . Having said that, Reflections Of My Life is a truly great single, and I am more than pleased to have acquainted myself with a band to whom I paid far too little atention all those years ago.
