Album Infos:
The Beach Boys - joined in the pictures and on the sound effects track by their wives, girlfriends, cousins and friends to make it look like there really was a party - spent a few days in Western Studio #2, singing some of their favorite songs of the fifties and sixties. Party was no more than a pit stop on the way to Pet Sounds. Party's instrumentation, with the exception of a bass guitar, was all acoustic.
The "party noises" overdub session was after the actual recording of the tracks.

On the Party cover and the accompanying cards, you can spot Lynda Jardine, Marilyn Wilson, and Carole Wilson (Dennis' first wife - cudding Dennis on the back cover), also Bruce Johnston in the volleyball shots. The girl with Carl is definitely NOT Annie.

According to the session sheets, the instrumental players on the PARTY tracks were Alan, Bruce, Brian, Carl, Dennis and Hal (credited as session leader at all the sessions). The session sheets don't detail the instrument breakdown, but it appears to be Brian (piano), Carl (guitar), Alan (guitar), Bruce (bass -- heard occasionally), Dennis (percussion) and Hal (percussion, harmonica).
