Keepin' the Summer Alive is the 24th studio album by American rock band the Beach Boys, released on March 24, 1980, on Brother, Caribou and CBS Records. Produced by band member Bruce Johnston, following aborted attempts to have founding member Brian Wilson return to his former role, the album is the last with founding drummer Dennis Wilson, who would drown in December 1983. The album also features the Eagles' guitarist Joe Walsh on the opening track "Keepin' the Summer Alive".

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 g context. This would become the last Beach Boys album to feature Dennis Wilson, who 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).

By the end of the '70s, the Beach Boys were turning into a novelty act with their live shows and spewing forth easily forgettable records. One would have hoped that with the emergence of a new decade the group would have adapted a fresh outlook and returned to its former levels of creativity. They did adapt a new way of looking at things, but it just wasn't the right one. Keepin' the Summer Alive isn't just a low point of the band's career, it is the low point.

Technical Notes:
The album was recorded at Rumbo Recorders, Los Angeles, and Jardines Barn, Big Sur, California.
All recording was done on Neve consoles, operating in class A, and Studer A-800 multi-track tape recorders.
Two 24-track Studer tape recorders and a Neve, NECAM computer assisted console were electronically linked together for the final 48 track mixdown.
Microphones used include: Vocals - Neumann M-49; RCA 77-DX; Wahrenbrock PZM-A.
Instruments - AKG C-24, D-12; PZM-A; Neumann U-87, KM 84; Shure SM 57.
Tape to disc transfer made at Kendun Recorders utilizing Neumann disc cutting equipment.

All selections were recorded in true stereophonic sound with special attention to spatial perspective.
This type of recording is much more exciting to hear since it fills the room with sound much as would be present in a live performance.
