BOB AND MARCIA

YOUNG GIFTED AND BLACK / PIED PIPER

Doctor Bird



cd

Released: 11th May 2018

£11.99


This long overdue set comprises the popular duo’s two Trojan albums from the early 1970s, including the two best-selling title tracks plus a host of superior early reggae sides, including the rare Jamaican mix of ‘Young Gifted & Black’ & this marks the First ever reissue of the popular ‘Pied Piper’ album.

Soon after joining Harry Johnson’s stable of artists, the duo made the British pop charts with a joyous reggae version of Nina Simone’s ‘To Be Young, Gifted & Black’, which peaked at number five in the spring of 1970. The following summer, the pair returned to the UK charts when their self-produced version of the Crispian St. Peters’ pop hit, ‘Pied Piper’ made it to number 11, but by the mid-1970s both singers had returned to their successful solo careers, with Marcia also becoming a third of Bob Marley’s all-female backing band, the I-Threes.
