    Personnel: Raffi (vocals, guitar, bells, background vocals); Ken Whiteley (vocals, guitar, electric guitar, banjo, mandolin, accordion, piano, organ, percussion, background vocals); Patrick Godfrey (vocals, piano); Chris Thompson, Elizabeth Macay, Daniel Whiteley, Jenny Whiteley (vocals, background vocals); Bruce Cockburn (guitar); Grit Laskin (dulcimer, mandolin, pennywhistle, accordion, concertina); Chris Whiteley (harmonica, trumpet); Bruce Pennycook (clarinet, alto saxophone, baritone saxophone); Dick Smith (drums, congas, percussion, background vocals); Buckey Berger (drums, background vocals); Dennis Pendrith (background vocals). Audio Mixers: Daniel Lanois ; Ken Whiteley; Raffi. Recording information: Grant Avenue Studios, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (04/1980). Arranger: Raffi. Canadian children's performer Raffi brings a gentle, tuneful, and--most importantly--relaxed air to his songs. BABY BELUGA features four Raffi-penned originals, including the terrific title track, which begins with real whale sounds taken from underwater recordings. "Baby Beluga" is one of Raffi's best-known tunes and serves as the centerpiece of his 1984 video, A YOUNG CHILDREN'S CONCERT WITH RAFFI. In addition to the Raffi compositions, there are a number of popular, traditional songs, such as "This Old Man," "Kumbaya," and "Oats and Beans and Barley," on BABY BELUGA. All of the tracks on this recording are performed with his trademark affability. Raffi and his music exude an undeniable sweetness--think Andy Kaufman without the lingering menace. Those with kids will attest to the profound relief experienced when it's Raffi on the sound system of an extended car journey, rather than one of the numerous examples of cloying children's music that dominates the market.

    • Reliving my kids childhood!

      I had this cd for my now grown children when they were small. We listened to Raffi for many years as I had 3 children in 4 years and saw him in concert!! His music is great for small children and you will find yourself singing his songs right along with him! I would definitely recommend buying ALL of his cd's for your children!
