[2] [12] They signed a deal with Tony Macaulay's Target Records and in 1976, had what turned out to be their final Top 10 hit with the ominously entitled, Macaulay penned song, "Falling Apart at the Seams".

[13] Subsequent singles failed to chart. [2] One of these was " Talking In Your Sleep", produced by Roger Greenaway and released in January 1978, six months ahead of the Crystal Gayle version of the same song, which became well known worldwide.

To test for a set, put a teaspoon of the marmalade on one of the cold plates from the freezer (see Cherie’s tips). Return it to the freezer for a couple of minutes to cool, then push it with your finger – if it wrinkles, it’s ready.

Its meaningful lyrics and uplifting melody have provided solace and comfort to those going through tough times, showing them that there is always hope and a brighter tomorrow. The truth is that even you clever people who do make your own marmalade, or who source it from generous friends and family (that’s even cleverer), may be running a bit low. The first Seville oranges, the bitter orange that’s key to a good flavour, won’t be in the shops until December; so unless you’re a preserve paragon with the foresight to freeze some (I certainly don’t have space in my freezer) you’ll be buying it for the next few months. Marmalade was a hard-working band and getting more and more exposure and winning the admiration of fellow artists such as Jimi Hendrix. The group persevered and their two bass players gave them a unique sound. Their next single "Can't Stop Now" (with Alan Whitehead as the group’s drummer) did well in the US, getting to number one on some Statecharts. However, chart success was not forthcoming, and they were all but ready to give up when in 1968, they recorded "Lovin' Things." The single sold well and gave the group their first UK hit. In February 1969, the band appeared on the BBC's flagship program Colour Me Pop, (precursor to The Old Grey Whistle Test) performing a halfhour slot. They also appeared on the BBC's review of the 1960s music scene, Pop Go The Sixties, performing "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" live on the broadcast on BBC 1 on New Year's Eve 1969.

Testing my way through 18 marmalades, I looked for a good balance of sweet, bitter and tangy, with a lingering flavour. I also kept an eye on texture.

Ford left in 1975 and was replaced by Sandy Newman, who became the new lead singer and guitarist. Drummer Ray Duffy (who later played with Matthews Southern Comfort and Gallagher and Lyle and also on Campbell's later solo recordings), decided to leave in 1966 to return to Scotland to get married just after their first CBS release, "Its All Leading up to Saturday Night". The band then placed adverts in the New Musical Express and Melody Maker, and after various auditions, former postman Alan Whitehead ex member of London outfit the Loose Ends became their new drummer, debuting on their next single, "Can't Stop Now", which failed to sell despite the group's performing it on a TV play, The Fantasist, [4] written by Alun Owen, for the BBC Two Theatre 625 series.

Sterilising jars is important to stop your marmalade going mouldy.
