Jazz-influenced Melbourne pop band with brass section whose members included Linda George, later successful as a solo singer.
The band's name is presumably after the 1964 William S. Burroughs novel.
Suggested by Mike Robbins. Thanks to Pete Lloyd.
Lead vocals are by Lindy Cable.
The "Barry McCaskell" on the label is Barrie McCaskill.
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.
Produced and co-written by Bert Berns, single on Berns's own r&b label, Shout.
Erma Franklin is Aretha Franklin's sister.
