More Info:

Two CDs. Arguably the greatest female singer in the history of Jamaican music, Marcia Griffiths first made her mark the Jamaican music scene with a number of popular singles during the late Sixties, before finding international fame in 1970 alongside her long-term friend and sometime collaborator, Bob Andy. Bob & Marcia's uplifting reggae version of Nina Simone's inspiring song, '(To Be) Young, Gifted & Black' hit number 5 in the UK pop chart, with the single proving to be the first of two British chartbusters, with their exuberant interpretation of Pied Piper' just missing out on a Top 10 placing the following year. Soon after, Marcia became a member of Bob Marley's famed backing group, the I Threes, while also continuing to enjoy solo success with numerous Jamaican hits for a variety of record producers throughout the remainder of the Seventies and well beyond. And it is the very best of her solo work that features on this 'Essential Artist' compilation, the latest release in Trojan Records' newly launched range that showcases the work of Jamaica's best-loved 'foundation' artists. This collection expertly demonstrates just why Marcia Griffiths is today widely regarded as a Jamaican legend.
