Reggae Anthology: Melody Life
Label: VP Records
Marcia Griffiths has made a career of being relevant: she started singing in 1964 as one-half of the lovers rock duo Bob and Marcia, and in the mid-'70s she joined the I-Threes and made history backing Bob Marley, the man who broke reggae in the rest of the world. Through every stage, Griffiths' velvety voice and soulful phrasing needed no introduction -- they beguiled us without even trying. Nugget-hunters, get ready. This anthology is packed with nuggets from all phases of Griffiths' storied career.
