There never was a "Levi Smith" in the Clefs. The moving force in this progressive r&b band was Scottish-born singer-guitarist Barrie 'The Bear' McAskill. Over the years its personnel included a number of musicians well-known to Australian audiences.
Who's Who of Australian Rock lists over 60 members of Levi Smith's Clefs.
