Bob and Marcia were a Jamaican vocal duo, that consisted of Bob Andy and Marcia Griffiths.[1] They had a #5 UK hit single in 1970 with "Young, Gifted and Black".[2] 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.[2] They discontinued their partnership in the mid-1970s, both feeling that it was not bringing them adequate financial reward.[1]
