No.  Runaway was recorded in 1982 after Carl returned and was pushed as a 1982 single release for CBS.  But CBS apparently balked at releasing another cover and Runaway did not appear on vinyl until the 1986 Sunkist promotional LP.

It's a comp featuring Beach Boys Medley, Getcha Back, Rock 'N' Roll to the Rescue, California Dreamin', and a few of the oldies.

<<It's a comp featuring Beach Boys Medley, Getcha Back, Rock 'N' Roll to the Rescue, California Dreamin', and a few of the oldies. <<

In an early 1986 interview, Mike said the Sunkist LP would be a collection of "...our favorite live tracks," so I was looking forward to a new live album featuring current highlights like the Surfin' Safari/Surf City/Surfin USA medley, California Girls, Runaway, maybe the opening medley that included I Can Hear Music, Dance Dance Dance, etc.  I was living in Carbondale, Illinois.  On the release day I called the Sunkist office at the DuQuoin Fairgrounds and they said I could drive up and purchase.  Naturally, I was a tad bit disappointed that I'd essentially driven a 40 mile round trip for one song, lol...

Yep, the things we do for one track - I spent god only knows how much at the time to get it posted over the Atlantic BUT hey, it was worth it and having the 1986 Tour Programme included was a bonus

I have a pair of Sunkist sunglasses from that promotion. Got them at the Ohio State Fair after the concert.
