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).
