Editors’ Notes Made in California is a 174-track summary of a rock ‘n’ roll supergroup. Its length is deliberate: this isn't aimed at casual fans seeking a comprehensive greatest-hits collection but at hardcore fans who'll appreciate the efforts to uncover rare material and offer alternate mixes, instrumental versions, vocal sessions, radio spots, and live performances. There are gorgeous stereo mixes of “Surfin’ U.S.A.,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” “Wendy,” “California Girls,” and “Wouldn’t It Be Nice"; an "unplugged" 2012 version of “There’s No Other (Like My Baby)”; a session excerpt and master take of “Graduation Day”; a decent overview of the The Smile Sessions; live versions of “Vegetables,” "Summer in Paradise," and “Sherry She Needs Me” (with its 1965 instrumental track mixed with a 1976 vocal); and “That’s Why God Made the Radio,” celebrating the group's 50th anniversary on a high note. All this makes Made in California a hardcore fan’s dream—and a delight for any casual fan who desires an alternate path to Beach Boys enlightenment.
