The first hit single Marcia Griffiths released was “Feel Like Jumping”, written by Bob Andy, arranged by Jackie Mittoo and produced by Coxone Dodd on the Studio One / Down Beat label. The first song, “Wall Of Love”, Marcia Griffiths ever recorded was as well for Coxone Dodd but was never released!). The debut album “Marcia Griffiths at Studio One” was from the same label and producer. This album featured the first combination recording of Bob Andy and Marcia – “Always Together”. Marcia’s second album for Studio One, titled “Truly” was released in 1998 by Heartbeat Records. In 1970, again as a duo, Marcia and Bob Andy had an international hit with “Young Gifted And Black”. They earned a Silver Disc award and released an album with the same name; that album was produced by Harry J. and released by Trojan Records in England and Europe. “Young Gifted and Black” was subsequently released by Motown Records in the USA. The next year (1971) Bob and Marcia had another hit on the London and European charts with “The Pied Piper”. They released a second duet album with their hit as the title track, which was again produced by Harry J. After that period of success, Bob & Marcia chose to pursue separate careers. In 1974, Marcia released her second solo album “Sweet Bitter Love”, produced by Lloyd Charmers for Trojan Records.
