Surf's Up hit the Top 30 on its first release, reaching No. 29 on the Billboard LP charts &emdash; the highest chart placement the group had had since 1967. At the time of its release, Surf's Up was hailed by many as a comeback for The Beach Boys, who were beginning to attract raves for their live performances, including highly acclaimed sets at New York's legendary Carnegie Hall. Carl Wilson makes solid contributions on Surf's Up with "Long Promised Road" and "Feel Flows," and the album also features stellar tracks by Al Jardine and Mike Love, as well as Bruce Johnston's most enduring composition, the gently nostalgic "Disney Girls (1957)," but the album's twin jewels are both from Brian Wilson &emdash; "Til I Die" and the title track &emdash; one of the centerpieces of the then-unreleased Smile (co-written by lyricist Van Dyke Parks and here given that album's "Child Is Father to the Man" as a glorious coda.)
