Etta James. She had her first hit in the UK a few years ago, when "I just want to make love to you" was used in a Coke (or was it Pepsi?) commercial!

OK here's a pretty obscure one.....who was originally known as (deep breath!) Florencia Bisenta de Casillas Martinez Cardona?

:D :D :D

Wow! Vikki Carr!
She's really well known in South America...so it seems she drank some Absinthe to change from Bisenta to Vikki!!

Ok..let's start a romantic night with your wife....have some wine, caviar, and melt her with some Barrence Eugene Carter 's music.

Iris Colleen Summers = Mary Ford....the LP clue kinda gave that away!

OK let's try this - which 60's bass player, known by a single-word name, was originally known as Trevor Leonard Davies?

:D :D :D

Nice clues - that'd be Sun Ra. I have to confess, I've heard of him but don't think I've ever heard anything by him.

OK - how's Eugene Dixon better known?

:D :D :D

Was it Black Francis then Frank Black? Or, vise versa?

Here's another multiple personality...
