Short Review: 
In this soundtrack of his first filmed live concert, Raffi’s fluid, mellow vocals and easy, gentle manner clearly win over children in the audience, and will not fail to enthrall those listening at home, too.
Long Review: 

Raffi's winning personality shines bright in this soundtrack of his first filmed live concert. Strumming on his guitar, and backed up by the four-member Rise and Shine Band, Raffi’s fluid, melodious voice and gentle manner win over children in the audience, and will not fail to enthrall those listening at home, too. Because it’s a live concert album, you can hear Raffi’s brief introductions to the songs, and his interaction with the audience. The clearly captivated crowd claps and sings along, drawing young listeners at home into the experience, into Raffi’s warm circle of music and joy. During the songs, however, the sound of the audience is never overwhelming or distracting – Raffi is always center stage on this recording. Performing such favorites as “Bathtime,” “Five Little Ducks,” "The More We Get Together," "Baby Beluga," "Shake My Sillies Out," “Like Me and You,” and "Everything Grows," Raffi works his harmonious magic, providing young children with an exhilarating introduction to the pure joy of music.
