he mysteriously-named Thorinshield released an album and two singles in 1968 which,
though they sank without trace, are now prized by fans of so-called 'sunshine pop'.
Their roots lay in Los Angeles, where drummer Terry Hand had played in numerous
surf bands, as well as recording two singles with Everpresent Fullness. Bassist
Bobby Ray, meanwhile, was a seasoned session player who had participated in
Donovan’s legendary May 1966 sessions in LA, resulting in songs including the
classic Season Of The Witch. They teamed up with guitarist James Ray in 1967,
and Smith and Ray began to write commercial songs together that reflected an
 interest in both folk and psychedelia.

Sleeve is EX, no flaws to speak of 
punch hole in upper R corner - promo? 
Record is EX, Beautiful Shine, Clean! possibly unplayed. 
There is a line from the label out into perhaps the last 
4-6 grooves that pop - otherwise there are no flaws. 
Original owner seemed to have a connection to Philips / Mercury
as many of these ORIGINAL LPs have punch holes, or 
other promo marks on them, and they don't appear to
have ever been played. 
Impossible to find in this condition!
