Your Daily Lick: Carol Denney

The Riley Boys (Solid Frog Productions)



Carol Denney's voice stands front and center throughout all eighteen songs and 67 minutes. For those who take comfort in the erstwhile Berkeley activist's audacious, stage-friendly folk style, this fact may be a godsend. Yet for those with whom her self-aware expertise, trebly tones, and drawn-out, wavering syllables don't sit well, it could be a real drag.
