Adult Entertainment (album)

Adult Entertainment is Raffi's third LP album for his Troubadour label, released in 1977.[1][2] This is the second of two records Raffi made with adult listeners in mind (the first being 1975's Good Luck Boy). Apart from several self-penned songs, Raffi also covers songs from Jesse Winchester ("Yankee Lady") and fellow Canadian folk artist Stan Rogers ("Forty-Five Years"). This album was later released as "Lovelight" (1980).[3] It is currently not available in CD format.
