Shrine Records was an American soul and R&B record label based in Washington, D.C. It was founded in 1964 by its primary songwriter Eddie Singleton and his wife, Raynoma Gordy Singleton (who had also founded Motown with her then-husband, Berry Gordy). Its headquarters was a townhouse located at 3 Thomas Circle NW within Washington, D.C. 

From 1964 to 1967, Shrine released a total of twenty vinyl 45 singles comprising forty different tracks. However, none of the Shrine singles were significant hits, and the label ceased operations in 1967. Shrine's stock of unsold records was destroyed in a warehouse fire in the 1968 King assassination riots. As a result, very few Shrine records remain today and are highly sought-after by collectors. 

This CD collects both originally released and previously unreleased Shrine material.
