Made in U.S.A. Album

The Beach Boys

About Made in U.S.A.

Made in U. S. A. is a 1986 double vinyl album (or one-CD) compilation of some of The Beach Boys' biggest successes. Released by their original record label, Capitol Records, it marked a brief return to the label, with whom The Beach Boys released one further album, 1989's Still Cruisin'. Featuring a number of their 1960s' classics, in addition to a sampling of their later hits, Made in U. S. A. also contains two new recordings, both produced by Terry Melcher. "Rock 'n' Roll to the Rescue" is a Mike Love/Melcher collaboration, and "California Dreamin'" is a cover of the Mamas & the Papas' late 1965 debut single. Both were released as singles and made the U. S. pop singles chart. A slow seller, Made in U. S. A. reached No. 96 in the U. S. and ultimately went double platinum there, though with other compilations now available, Made in U. S. A. has since gone out of print.
