Do any Beach Boys perform on this?

Nope, but the session musicians that played for Brian are on it.

Some of the AFM documentation for Jan & Dean’s version of “Norwegian Wood” appears to be missing or misplaced. I could not find the contracts for the initial sessions in December 1965. But I do have them for the March 1966 sessions. Jan tinkered a lot with this track, working on different versions.

Musicians and engineers listed on the contracts include: Jan Berry (leader); Hal Blaine (double scale); Chuck Britz; Glen Campbell; Gary Coleman; Henry Lewy; Don Peake (2 Doubles); Ray Pohlman (1 Double); Julius Wechter (1 Double)

The instrumentation featured Guitars 1–2, Bass Guitar [Danelectro 6-string], Bass, Drums, Percussion [Vibraphone, Marimba, Chimes, Tambourine], and Horns [Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone].

That's Don Peake playing the signature riff with an electric 12-string.

The guitar chart specified two electric 12-string guitars assigned to “Tom” and “Don” (Tommy Tedesco and Don Peake).

Was Jan's tinkering via overdubs or did he do an entire re-record?

Also, Mark, I have some questions for you - would you mind getting in touch through a private message?

Ain't that just the way.  Try the other board?  I'll write you there.
