*A Young Children's Concert with Raffi* - Raffi solo; filmed in 1984.
*Raffi in Concert with the Rise & Shine Band* - Raffi accompanied by a four-piece band; filmed in 1988.
*Raffi on Broadway* - Raffi accompanied by a keyboardist and a bass player; filmed in 1993.
Of the three concerts, my 2 year-old son's (and my own) favorite is probably the first one, *A Young Children's Concert*, since it features Raffi performing solo on a simple stage, in the smallest venue of the three shows.
The first two concerts feature many of Raffi's beloved and signature songs, such as "Baby Beluga," "The More We Get Together," and "Shake My Sillies Out." The last concert (filmed at the Gershwin Theatre in NYC) showcases several of Raffi's environmentally conscious works, and has a bit of a theatrical flavor to it.
In all three shows, Raffi sounds almost exactly as he does on his albums. His love and respect for children shine through in his lyrics; his interaction with and attitude toward his young audience; and the sheer joy that infuses his performances.
The sound and image quality of all three concerts are great, considering their age. The concert footage is nicely shot and edited. The DVD menu interface is simple and straightforward: you can access each concert, and either play the show in its entirety or select individual songs from that performance. There are no annoying ads or previews at the start of the DVD.
One bonus feature I would like to have seen is a "sing-along" option, but even without that feature, the DVD is fabulous.Read more ›
The second concert is great. Every song is great. There are so many masterpiece songs. His message is wonderful for children. I read that the first two videos are Quintuple Platinum eight times between them. The third concert has a very good message too.
This family is happy to have found out about Raffi! I highly recommend this!
But this video or DVD! Your children will love it more than any other.
