Notes:
Released in March 1980, "Keepin' the Summer Alive" is the twenty-fourth studio album by The Beach Boys, their first released in the 1980s, and their second release under their contract with CBS Records.

The band took a small break to re-think the project, with Bruce Johnston taking complete control of the album's production, and placing the songs in a more contemporary-sounding context. The album ended up as a mixture of brand new songs and older songs from the archives that hadn't been released. The older songs date back to 1970 ("When Girls Get Together"), 1972 ("Endless Harmony", the only track on the album where Dennis is heard) and 1978 ("Santa Ana Winds").

"Keepin' the Summer Alive" reached #75 in the U.S. and #54 in the UK. This would become the last Beach Boys album to feature Dennis Wilson since he died in 1983.

Single releases from the LP were "Goin' On" b/w "Endless Harmony" (Brother/Caribou) and "Livin' With A Heartache" b/w "Santa Ana Winds" (Brother/Caribou).
