"Rated as 'The best rock album ever produced in Australia' by the local press, it's about time that this album can reach a wider audience after 35 years. Mayfair Music is very proud to present Levi Smith's Clef's superb album Empty Monkey. This group played a dynamic progressive rock with a heavy organ and riffing guitars. But what makes this album really outstanding is the roaring soul-voice of the band's founder Barrie 'The Bear' McAskill! As we had the full support of Barrie during this project a lot of unreleased material popped up, including a test pressing of the first recording session. The songs on the album were re-recorded versions, making the first session tracks a special treat because they sound much rawer and full of sweat! Due to the vast amount of additional tracks we decided to release this as a double LP in the original gatefold cover." 2005 reissue; originally released in the year 1970.
