Seen as part of ABC's Wide World of Entertainment late-night block, the first ABC edition of "Rockin' New Year's Eve" was headlined by the rock group Chicago, with guests The Beach Boys, The Doobie Brothers, Herbie Hancock and Olivia Newton-John with segments pre-recorded at MGM Studios in Hollywood. Airing on December 31, 1974, with Chicago's "Wishing You Were Here" still on the charts, the program seemed to present the perfect opportunity for a live performance of the hit song featuring Beach Boys members on backing vocals. The Beach Boys themselves performed "Good Vibrations", "Surfer Girl" and "Darlin" (backed by Chicago's horn section on the latter).
