Profiles the group of Los Angeles studio musicians known as the Wrecking Crew -- featuring Tommy Tedesco, guitar; Hal Blaine, Earl Palmer drums ; Carol Kaye, Joe Osborne, bass -- who played on a slew of rock and pop hits during the sixties. Gifted, versatile and possessing the knack for turning a simple tune into something memorable, the Wrecking Crew were the players who turned the Wall of Sound in Phil Spector's head into a reality, and helped Brian Wilson create the musical vision that would redefine California pop. The Wrecking Crew also backed up everyone from Sonny and Cher, the Mamas and the Papas and the Monkees to Herb Alpert, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra, but while they became legends in the music business, they were all but unknown to the millions of people who made their records some of the biggest hits of the day.
