Come to the Sunshine: Soft Pop Nuggets from the WEA Vaults is a 2004 compilation album released by Rhino Handmade, one of two new compilations using the Nuggets name.

The title comes from the first track, performed by Harpers Bizarre. As the title suggests, all 24 tracks were taken from the library of the Warner Music Group. The labels represented in this release are Atco, Colgems, Cotillion, Jubilee, Loma, Reprise, Valiant, and Warner Bros. Records.

The compilation was produced by Andrew Sandoval who created a radio series based around the collection. The program features 45's like the ones included on Come to the Sunshine: Soft Pop Nuggets from the WEA Vaults but expands the concept out to feature 1960s releases from every label.

The album was later re-released in the United Kingdom with a slightly revised track listing under the name "A Whole Lot of Rainbows", the title referring to the song by the Salt. Some of the songs were changed owing to EMI's ownership of some of the selections. The Street Corner Society's "Summer Days, Summer Nights" was replaced by Jan & Dean's "I Know My Mind," and The Coronado's "Trip To Loveland" was substituted with "The Sound Of Children" by The Aliis.
