– “California Sun”, is a song credited to Henry Glover and Morris Levy. Originally recorded by the 35-year-old New Orleans-born singer-songwriter Joe Jones, and released by EMI in the winter of 1961, it peaked at #89 on the charts. (Wikipedia)

– The most successful version, The Rivieras’ in 1964, reached #5 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. The Crickets recorded their version for their LP of the same name in 1964 (Liberty LRP 3351 / LST 7351). The New York City rock band The Dictators included their own cover of the song on their 1975 Go Girl Crazy! debut album. The song was later performed by The Ramones on their 1977 Leave Home album, and also used in the 1979 Rock ‘n’ Roll High School motion picture. This song is on various compilations, including All the Stuff (And More!) Volume 1 and Hey Ho! Let’s Go: The Anthology. The Ramones’ cover was also used in Jackass: The Movie, while The Rivieras’ version was used in Oliver Stone’s The Doors film, when Jim Morrison (played by Val Kilmer) arrives in Venice Beach.
