Hardin & York was an English jazz-rock duo created by Eddie Hardin on organ/pianos and Pete York on drums/percussions. Their style was similar to Hansson & Karlsson and Brian Auger & The Trinity and other duo bands like Attila, Twogether, Rustichelli & Bordini, Magma (German band) or Sixty-Nine.
 
They recorded 3 studio albums and left many concert recordings. Discography:
 
Tomorrow today (1969, Bell, SBLL125) (CD reissue: Repertoire, 1994  REP 4481-WY)
World smallest big band (1970, Bell, SBLL136) (CD reissue: Repertoire, 1994  REP 4482-WY)
For the world (1971, Bell, SBLL141) (LP reissue: See For Miles, 1985)
Live At The Marquee (1994, RPM RPM135) (1971 recording)
Hardin & York Live (Repertoire 1994, REP 4459-WY) (1970 recording, previously a bootleg)
Hardin & York with Charlie McCracken (1974, Vertigo, 6360622) (CD reissue - Repertoire, 1994  REP4452WP)
Hardin & New York (1979, Teldec, 624595)
Still A Few Pages Left (1995, RPM Thunderbird CSA 106)
 
Review from http://www.stylefeeder.com/: "In the late '60s a duo developed their act from the embers of the Spencer Davis Group, where they'd had their own spot during the middle of shows. Multi-keyboardist Eddie Hardin had gelled with Jazz drummer turned R&B for the sake of the SDG, Pete York to form the world's smallest big band. Like contemporaries Colosseum, Hardin & York's jazz inflected prog met with huge critical and commercial favor in Europe, especially Germany where they regularly sold out 15,000 seat venues. Their debut LP Tomorrow Today was so 'out there' its front cover design won prestigious art awards in New York. The cover artist obviously so pleased with himself he omitted to put the music artists name on the front! Reviewers called it a cross between Procol Harum and Traffic, to which we would add The Nice. Released on the decidedly un-prog Bell label it did nothing in the UK, but did chart in Europe. RPM. 2005."

The samples are interesting, thanks. There is prog too in the typical mix of late 60s / early 70s classic rock, r&b, but it's not dominant.  I think they could fit prog-related, and therefore I am putting this suggestion in the hands of the Admin Team.

Any decision according to Hardin & York?  Will it be included on PA? It has been quite a long time since I suggested them, that's why I ask...

PS. If need more samples to evaluate , please PM me.
