The Party Album (stylized as The Party Album!) is the second studio album by Dutch dance group Vengaboys. It was first released internationally under the name The Party Album! in 1999 and was later re-released under the title Greatest Hits Part 1 with alternate versions of some songs and other songs being replaced entirely.

Content[edit]

Two singles were released from The Party Album: "Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!" and "We're Going to Ibiza". Three of the band's four previously released singles, "To Brazil!", "Up & Down" and "We Like to Party! (The Vengabus)", are included on the album. The album tracks "You and Me" and "The Vengabeat", a reworked version of a previously recorded song "Funky Speed", both appeared on their previous album, Up & Down - The Party Album. Greatest Hits Part 1 features the same songs as the standard edition, except that it omits "Vengababes from Outer Space" and has five additional songs.
