Whoops! Comedian's CD Cover Gets Mixed Up With Death Metal Band

LOURDES GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Lourdes Garcia-Navarro.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

BERNIE CLIFTON: (Singing) To dream the impossible...

GARCIA-NAVARRO: Eighty-year-old entertainer Bernie Clifton was all set to release a new album, and then he got a look at the CD cover and didn't see his songs like "Lady In Red."

(SOUNDBITE OF ABHORRENT DECIMATION SONG, "ETERNAL REPULSION")

GARCIA-NAVARRO: Listed instead were tunes called "Eternal Repulsion" from the death metal band Abhorrent Decimation. Turns out there'd been a mix-up, and now the two joke they may go on tour together. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
