"... Raffi sounds as lighthearted and fun as ever ... with crisp and effective production, with Raffi’s guitar and voice shining. It is a soothing, amusing, and educational collection of well-crafted songs that treat children like the smart, very real people they are."
- The Vancouver Sun

Love Bug, Raffi’s first album of children’s songs in 12 years, marks a welcome return for the artist. The engaging 16-song collection embodies all of the qualities that have already established Raffi as a beloved and trusted icon for young listeners. Raffi recorded much of Love Bug in his own living room, accompanied by an extended family of musicians. Highlights include Raffi’s tributes to a pair of departed heroes: folk-music and children’s music pioneer Pete Seeger, and Nelson Mandela. Raffi also delivers a rollicking reading of the Woody Guthrie classic This Land Is Your Land, the album's only non-original composition.

“I see this album as a celebration of the real world, in response to the digital overreach that now touches every aspect of our lives. For me, to be a children’s advocate in this day and age, and not comment on social media, I wouldn’t be doing my job properly. I’m a tech enthusiast myself and I’ve kept up with the times, in terms of how I record and the freedom that the online and digital worlds give me. But with all tech events, the challenge is to keep your humanity in the forefront."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
