Bob & Marcia

Bob & Marcia was a Jamaican vocal duo that consisted of Bob Andy and Marcia Griffiths. The duo had a #5 UK hit single in 1970 with "Young, Gifted and Black" (a song by Nina Simone with lyrics by Weldon Irvine). They followed up with "Pied Piper", which peaked at #11 in the UK Singles Chart in 1971. Those two releases spent a total of twenty five weeks in that chart in a period of less than eighteen months. They discontinued their partnership in the mid-1970s, both feeling that it was not bringing them adequate financial reward. Read more on Last.fm
