From Hendrix to Unique to Rubettes

Advantages: The awful `Falling apart at the Seams` (present) era not covered
Disadvantages: No `Our House is Rockin` (last intermediate era) covered.

People think of Marmalade and they think of a commercial, crap pop band that never made it. The assumption is flawed. These three C.D.`s cover all recordings made by the group from when they changed their unfortunately chosen, (no offence, it`s just they ...

Classic early 70s pop

Advantages: Very varied collection from an often underrated act
Disadvantages: The occasional sub-standard track
