California Dreamin' with The Beach Boys

The lyrics to the Mama's & Papa's smash hit "California Dreamin'" ring true especially for all dealing with a such a cold winter filled with an abundance of snow and ice this year.  In 1986, The Beach Boys recorded a stellar version of this for their greatest hits compilation, Made In The U.S.A.  Terry Melcher produced the track and it featured Roger McGuinn from The Byrds on 12-string guitar.  John Phillips and Michelle Phillips (from Mama's & Papa's) along with Roger appear in the Beach Boys' music video for the single.
