The Wrecking Crew
Saturday Apr 18
(PG) 1 hr 40 min
What the Funk Brothers did for Motown...The Wrecking Crew did, only bigger, for the West Coast Sound. This documentary tells the story of the
unsung musicians that provided the backbeat and the swinging melody that drove many of the number one hits of the 1960's. It didn't matter if it
was The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Simon & Garfunkel, The Byrds, The Righteous Brothers, The Mamas & the Papas or many others ,
these dedicated musicians brought the flair and musicianship that made the American "west coast sound" a dominant cultural force around the world. A fun and moving tribute to the secret star-making machine known only as "The Wrecking Crew". - Magnolia Pictures.
