AllMusic Review by James Christopher Monger

Disky's 20-track Beach Boys collection California Dreamin' focuses on the group's stripy-shirt/clean-cut early days. While innocence abounds on classic cuts like "Barbara Ann," "Dance, Dance, Dance," and "Little Honda," the inclusion of some awful tracks from the '80s and the exclusion of beach-combing standards like "Good Vibrations" and "Wouldn't It Be Nice" make this collection essentially useless.
