Dolly Parton?

This is a genuine answer as I vaguely recollect her doing some reggae stuff in the late 90's early 2000's as for the Northern I don't know

Willie Nelson did some reggae-ish stuff as well as country. But I doubt that he did any Northern Soul.

The fellow I'm thinking of was black, some one like Edwin Starr (It wasn't him though)

Another clue........His middle name, which he didnt use, is the same as a fairly local area, albeit spelt differently. Get that and your cooking with gas, theres a big clue in that last remark too.

Ha ha! Nice one....but wrong.....bit more of a clue, its a city that we're talking about, sounds the same as his name, but spelt differently.Dont forget it didnt appear in his stage name.

Is that any clearer?

Another hidden clue there too!

Lester-Leicester?

Not much help though if he didn't use the middle name!

I'm thinking that the reggae part of this one might be the key. There can't be too many singers from Texas that have sung in that idiom.

Sorry to change the subject slightly Craig ,but have you seen the video for the number one on the download chart, Mercy by Duffy, Full of northern dance moves Pharoe spins ,back flips,swallow dives etc (brought back some memories I can tell you

I wouldn't say it's a 'northern' track though, she sounds like Amy Winehouse singing that 'Funky Green Dogs' track from 96 "Fired Up"

I have tried to link it to you tube (It is on there ) but there is no URL on the video at the moment
