Review:
This is Raffi, Nashville-style. Country music artists pay tribute to the Canadian children's music icon by putting their own enjoyable, down-home spin on such Raffi classics as "Shake My Sillies Out" (Lari White) and "Down By the Bay" (Eric Heatherly). Other tracks range from Billy Gilman's jaunty "Baby Beluga" and a tender "Blessed Be" from Alison Krauss, to Kathy Mattea's lovely and warm "One Light One Sun" and Rhonda Vincent's banjo-bouncy "Bananaphone." The CD isn't completely Raffi-less. He performs his peaceful anthem, "Blue White Planet."
