Raffi Proves That Making A Christmas Record Is Child's Play

Raffi Cavoukian seems like a natural choice for a Christmas record given that he is a noted children's entertainer (his autobiography is titled 'The Life of a Children's Troubadour'). By the time Raffi's Christmas album duly arrived in 1983, simply titled 'Raffi's Christmas Album', he had recorded several successful children's albums and was already feted back home in Canada for his musical releases. 'Raffi's Christmas Album' contained 15 tracks (it was reissued in 2002 with a bonus track called 'A Child's Gift of Love'). With a school choir featuring on several of the tracks as well as a plethora of exotic instruments such as the autoharp, glockenspiel, flugelhorn and fiddle (most of them played by Ken Whiteley) this was never less than an interesting and varied listen for both young and old ears. Kids are this album's natural audience however with plenty of seasonal favourites like 'Frosty The Snowman', 'Jingle Bells' and 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas' to keep the spirits high. Raffi’s vocals are perfect, a mix of fun and soothing they are often layered so it sounds like there are two of him. He is joined on occasion by other vocalists such as Caitlin Hanford on ‘Christmas Time’s A-Coming’ which is so well done it might embarrass several better known country stars who have attempted it. Raffi scores extra kudos for recording some lesser known tracks such as 'Must Be Santa', 'On Christmas Morning' and 'Old Toy Trains' which are all dispatched with a sense of wide-eyed glee that will enrapture your little ones.
