OH... IT WASN'T A JOKE, THEN: Barry Manilow and Bette Midler really have recorded a 'tribute' album to Rosemary Clooney.

Midler says that she jumped at the chance when Manilow rang her after a dream and suggested it: "I'm a big believer that coincidences happen for a reason. I just decided it was meant to be; there was no reason to pluck the idea to death and think it to dust." (Surely if something is happening for a reason, it's not a coincidence?) So, apparently, the timing was great because her record contract had "only just" expired (two years before).

Next week: Having dropped a tab on top of some Junior Lemsip, Sting has a vision and persuades Claire Sweeney to record the Alma Cogan back catalogue.
