Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Here's your ticket to three command performances by the children's music superstar. This disc includes three concerts that track Raffi's phenomenal rise, beginning with the 1984 solo outing "A Young Children's Concert." Such cherished Raffi chestnuts as "The More We Get Together," "Six Little Ducks," "Bumpin' Up and Down (In My Little Red Wagon)," "Shake My Sillies Out," and his signature "Baby Beluga" benefit from the performer's obvious joy in his work. "Raffi in Concert with the Rise and Shine Band" is a 1988 performance that captures Raffi-mania at its peak. His engaging repertoire includes traditional songs ("Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," "He's Got the Whole World"), multicultural songs ("De Colores"), and Raffi originals (including "All I Really Need," "Everything Grows," and "Rise and Shine"). The 1993 "Live on Broadway" show features much slicker production and finds Raffi adding environmental awareness to his mix of material with "Help This Planet Earth," "Evergreen, Everblue," and "Big Beautiful Planet/Clean Rain." What makes Raffi such a hit with children and adults is that he performs with genuine warmth and good-natured humor, and without a trace of condescension. A new generation of Raffi fans will cheer for encores of this captivating DVD collection.

This is truly one of the best gifts anyone can give a child. I have used it to teach and entertain my own children and now I use it at school. I've never met a kid who didn't like Raffi!

This is my number one gift for every toddler that comes into my life. I've been using Raffi music with children since 1988. His music is truly a gift for any parent or child. I also recommend this concert on DVD. We watch the DVD at home and use the CD in the car. Children love to sing along.

I am so happy to find this Raffi video. Raffi entertained my daughters as they were growing up. He now entertains my grandchildren. His talents with music and song are wonderful! We are so blessed to have such an entertainer for our children. Thank you! Raffi! for your musical investment in these little lives. May God Always Bless you!
