Bernie Fass & Rosemary Caggiano: The Weather Company

From producer Bernie Fass and lyricist Rosemary Caggiano comes this charmingly eccentric children's record about that big multinational that makes everyone's weather. Don Joyce had this LP playing in the background throughout Negativland's immortal Over the Edge program The Willsaphone Stupid Show. Upbeat and catchy, occasionally downright rhapsodic ("Clouds"), and eventually slightly ominous (check out the ultimate track, where the company apologizes for all its mistakes).

We Make Weather, Whether We Like It Or Not
What Would Happen If It Rained Up?
We End Up With A Storm
Thunder, Lightning
Time For A Break
Snow Is A Gift To Children
You Have To Be Humble When You Work With The Sun
At The End Of Every Rainbow
We Weather Makers
