Green Seagull – (I Used To Dream In) Black And White

Words by Jack Hopkin I discovered pretty soon after I first laid ears on Green Seagull's new single that I, too, used to dream in black and white.

At a time where a lot of bands were going for otherworldly psychedelic 'mind-crashers', Marmalade went another direction. They had a very commercial sounding aura about them, and after four failed singles, they finally made the top 10 of the U.K. Charts. Fortunately for them, unlike massive bands like the Small Faces and The Move, … Continue reading Classic album review: Marmalade – There’s A Lot Of It About (1968)
