The Jody Grind - One Step On (1969)

A very daring, progressive, experi mental, jazz influenced group, typical of the period, dominated by the powerful keyboard work of Tim Hinkley.Bernie Holland was later with Hummingbird, Humblebums, Stealer's Wheel, Joan Armatrading and many others. Pete Gavin has also played with Al Stewart, Long John Baldry and Albert Lee.
Tim Hinkley, over the last 30 years, has had a very rich, illustrious career, which includes Joan Armatrading, Beckett, Graham Bell, Boxer, Roger Chapman & Shortlist, David Coverdale, Dr. Feelgood, Chris Farlowe & Thunderbirds, Peter French, Mike Heron's Reputation, Humble Pie, Alexis Korner, Albert Lee, Henry McCullough, Snafu, Al Stewart, Thin Lizzy, Streetwalkers, Vinegar Joe, Whitesnake, Steve York's Carmelo Pardalis, and his own all-star band, Hinkley's Heroes.And finally, Louis Cennamo has played with Colosseum, Renaissance, Steamhammer, Illusion and Armageddon. Alex Gitlin, October 2000
A UK early '70s underground favourite. The band are perhaps unfairly better known for their second album 'Far Canal', but this is an excellent set of Hammond organ dominated songs which comes complete with a bonus version of the 'Paint It Black' single. Freak Emporium

I always wondered why this group wasn't "anywhere out there" on the blogs or forums.
I have Far Canal on LP and noticed some years ago that it's asked for quit a lot of money. (But I wasn't interested to sell.)
I've been to a concert of them in 1970 in a small club in Delft, Holland. Quit psychedelic.
Didn't one of these guys also play in Brinsly Schwarz?
