The Wrecking Crew

Documentary on the killer band of session musicians who played on many of the biggest records of the 1960s, from the album Pet Sounds to hit singles California Dreamin, These Boots Are Made for Walkin, Be My Baby, The Beat Goes On and Good Vibrations. Director Danny Tedesco, son of a Wrecking Crew guitarist, spent a decade working on the film - and a half dozen more securing the rights to the big tunes required to tell the players' story.
