Sunshine Dream is the third double-album compilation of The Beach Boys' music to be compiled by their former label, Capitol Records (following the earlier Endless Summer and Spirit of America). Released in 1982, the album features singles and album tracks ranging from 1964 to 1969, and also includes "The Beach Boys Medley", which reached number 12 in 1981. The album was compiled and released while The Beach Boys were contracted with CBS Records and, as such, is not considered an "official" release.

Due to the appearance of more recent compilations, Sunshine Dream has long since been deleted.
