Long Review: 

Raffi's winning personality shines bright in this appealing video of a live concert that is chock-full of singable songs. Using only a guitar, a kazoo, and his melodious voice and gentle manner, this internationally acclaimed entertainer engages and electrifies the children in the audience and home viewers alike. The simple set and straightforward camera angles keep the focus on the music. Wearing a bright Hawaiian shirt and fuzzy slippers, Raffi performs such rousing favorites as "The More We Get Together," "I ve Been Working on the Railroad," "Brush Your Teeth," "Baby Beluga," "Shake My Sillies Out," and "Down By the Bay." Camera shots show enthusiastic audience members singing along, clapping their hands, moving their bodies, and smiling away, all actions that will be echoed by children watching the video at home. Raffi weaves a harmonious spell over all, and provides young children with an exhilarating introduction to the pure joy of music.
