This isn’t one of those documentaries that leave you feeling wrecked at the end with your emotions, but it was a highly interesting look at the music industry in Los Angeles during the 60’s. There was this group called the Wrecking Crew of about 20 or so session musicians that would play the instrumentals of some of the most famous singers of the time like Elvis, Frank Sinatra and the Beach Boys. The music in the film was amazing, and learning more about Tommy Tedesco’s crew was really interesting. I wasn’t always enthralled by this documentary but it has some really excellent parts, I really liked the female bass player and how talented she was. The soundtrack to this film seems like a no-brainer must-buy. I love a movie that gives credit where credit is due, these artists worked themselves to the bone to make all your favorite musicians sound good. I’m glad they were able to be honored in this film.
