There's A Party Goin' On was Wanda's 1961 rock+roll album, very rare. Along with general R+R songs there were two other "Party" songs as followups to Let's Have a Party (not on the album): Man We Had a Party, and the title song, which was original. The first one had been around before as Did We Have a Party.
Here's the groove:

1) Did We Have a Party by Billy Brown from 1957
2) Man We Had a Party by Wanda
3) There's a Party Goin' On by Wanda
4) Crash the Party by Benny Joy from 1959

None of these were hits.
Don't buy a Wanda collection unless it has all 3 party songs.
This album is available for download at Amazon.com.
The lead guitarist on this album was Roy Clark.
Let's Have a Party was recorded in 1958 using Gene Vincent's group The BlueCaps. The song was simply included on her country album "Wanda Jackson" (Capitol #1041). In 1960 there was the LP "Rockin' With Wanda" which included her recent rockabilly singles, but all the songs were not pure R+R. Let's Have a Party was released as a single in 1960 and reached #37, but wasn't widely known at the time.
She was mainly Country in her career, only had the one r+r hit on the pop charts, and so is not currently in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. She's still performing and singing well.
Did you know Elvis Presley was her boyfriend in their early careers.
