The album did not chart.
Allmusic.com gave Surfin’ Round the World a 4 star review:
Bruce Johnston had quite a prolific recording career prior to being tabbed as a Beach Boy of the future, and this self-produced effort was one of the more notable installments. From the “Twistin’ U.S.A.”-styled knockoff title song, this is a really fun album, despite the rigidness of the concept inherent in the title. … Falling stylistically somewhere between the frat rock party noise of Surfers’ Pajama Party and his later, more streamlined hot rod efforts with Terry Melcher, this is one fun, rockin’ album indeed.
