A documentary by Denny Tadesco. Known within the entertainment industry as The Wrecking Crew, these talented young studio musicians played on virtually every top pop hit out of LA in the 60's with their influential West Coast sound. The crew backed dozens of popular singers, and were one of the most successful groups of studio musicians in music history. The Wrecking Crew's members were musically versatile but typically had formal backgrounds in jazz or classical music. The talents of this group of "first call" players were used on almost every style of recording including television theme songs, film scores, advertising jingles and almost every genre of American popular music, from The Monkees to Bing Crosby. Notable artists employing the Wrecking Crew's talents included Nancy Sinatra, Bobby Vee, The Partridge Family, The Mama & The Papas, The Carpenters, The 5th Dimension, John Denver, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, and Nat King Cole.
