The Wrecking Crew!

If you listened to the West Coast Sound of popular music in the 1960s and 1970s you might be surprised to know that many of the hits (regardless of who sung them) have one thing in common: The Wrecking Crew.

From Sinatra, Nat King Cole, The Beach Boys, Sonny & Cher, The Monkees, The Byrds (the list goes on and on) much of their background music was not performed by them but by a talented group of musicians known only as The Wrecking Crew.

if a song needed an extra 'oomph', driving beat or musical accompaniment The Wrecking Crew could always be counted on to deliver.

Magnolia Home Entertainment presents the musicians behind the music with its The Wrecking Crew! DVD documentary that spotlights the unsung heroes of popular music.

Extras include over 6 hours of deleted scenes focusing on the talented individuals who put the 'pop' in popular music.
