The first Beach Boys album of the 1980s, KEEPIN' THE SUMMER ALIVE has a troubled background: though Brian Wilson was again at the helm, the band's presiding genius was in a fragile mental state, and was soon replaced by Bruce Johnston. Apart from the perky title track and the Brian Wilson-produced version of Chuck Berry's "School Days," highlights here are the regretful "Endless Harmony" and the retro "Goin' On." With synthesizers and exotic drum machines predominating, THE BEACH BOYS '85 is very much of its time, though "Getcha Back" hints at past glories and the harmonies are reliably gorgeous.
