On June 16, the acclaimed documentary, THE WRECKING CREW comes home on DVD and Blu-ray from Magnolia Pictures. If you’ve ever listened to a hit record of the 1960s – then this film should strike your interest – the true story about the talented session players that were heard on some of the biggest records of the era. From THE BEACH BOYS to THE MONKEES, FRANK SINATRA to NAT KING COLE, SONNY AND CHER to THE THE BYRDS and beyond, these are the players who made the hits, and many audiences never knew of their existence until now. Check out a preview below…


What the Funk Brothers did for Motown…The Wrecking Crew did, only bigger, for the West Coast sound. Six years in a row in the 1960s and early 1970s, the Grammy for “Record of the Year” went to Wrecking Crew recordings. THE WRECKING CREW tells the story of the unsung musicians that provided the backbeat, the bottom and the swinging melody that drove many of the number one hits of the 1960s. It didn’t matter if it was Nat “King” Cole, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, The Monkees, The Byrds or The Beach Boys, these dedicated musicians brought the flair and musicianship that made the American “West Coast sound” a dominant cultural force around the world.
