The Wrecking Crew – Movie 2022 Free Download Full

Music lovers will be astonished at the influence The Wrecking Crew wielded over rock and pop music in the 1960s and early 1970s. These unsung instrumentalists were the de-facto backing band on hit records by The Beach Boys, Phil Spector, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, Sonny & Cher, Elvis, The Monkees and many more. These dedicated musicians brought the flair and musicianship that made the American “West Coast Sound” a dominant cultural force around the world.

  1. Great documentary! Well done Tedescos! A period that will never be again. I suppose Steely Dan took the method to Micro with bringing in each musician, for each part of one song.

  2. I’ve watched this documentary 10 times, and it gets better every time. I just loved that music and the talent that exists out there. Miss those days & their talent. Thanks for an amazing history lesson !!

  3. I'm glad l watched this. It's unbelievable how much music this group of musicians is responsible for. I mean they had a hand in almost everything coming out of the 60's that wasn't coming from the UK. Really the greatest, most innovative and wonderful period in music history in my opinion. And what a really nice tribute to his dad the son did by making this picture.

  4. It's that Wendy Melvoin's dad Mike. How cool she played with Prince and she come up with the riff for Purple Rain. The most well known and beloved Prince tune. Another time my dad took me to a show and he was a huge Prince fan as well. I'm pretty sure that's her Dad.

  5. The sounds from this era is so amazing. I always wanted to live during this time. The beach boys was my dad's favorite and he played the organ in the band and it was some of my best days growing up. He started playing piano as a child and then he taught me as a child on the same piano. I use to think he was the most handsome guy ever born and he played some cool instruments to me like the accordion and the stand up bass as well. I fell in love with motown through my dad. He was ahead of his time in my eyes because I come from North Carolina and a very small country town with my eyes on the coast for Wilmington, NC because it was her closest cool beach like I thought Cali would look like back then. My dad was super cool and took me to see so many great band's as a child. It didn't matter who I liked he'd take me and never told me I shouldn't listen to that type of music. I remember my first punk rock show and my dad and uncle took me to the the Misfits in 83. Dad later told me he was scared but after about 30 minutes he said it was like seeing Elvis the first time. I love watching these types of documentaries that takes you back to a snapshot in time. From watching this you almost feel like what you think it was like was nothing like it and people were getting along and not paying attention to the mainstream news and living their best life and that's all you can ask for and I love the way they talk about her and them together. It's a true team and friendship. One in a million type of life. She was a babe on the bass and smoking. I grew up with her name along with many of these people because of my dad. Brain is a genius and it's no surprise about his mental illness because so many artist suffer from mental illness and it seems the very best have more hardcore types of mental illness. I mean look at the music within his head and then think about how much more was locked inside. I can't imagine but I'm glad he got the help he needed after years of staying inside. That guy is right there will never be another Brian Wilson, ever!

  6. I know no one ever thinks about these things, but I would stare at the photo of the five young guys on the cover of the Pet Sounds album, and listen to the lush orchestration of a song like "Let's Go Away For Awhile" and think to myself–"There's no way in the world these five young guys are playing all these instruments"! Never knowing for years anything about the Wrecking Crew–or as I called them–the "Brian Wilson Orchestra"!

  7. Ah the Beach Boys, Surfin USA,….they fall in the water, and drown, and live, in concert, horrific. Still would like to know who played lead guitar on the Chuck Berry influenced stuff. Tedesco isn't credited and it's not Glen, I would know Glen.
    And the Jackson 5, in concert, even worse. And Toto was the rhythm section for a lot of Michael Jackson hits, whew! White musicians, raised by millionaires, in gated communities (Hidden Hills), goin to Catholic boys schools (Chaminade),….. for the most part,….. go figure.
    But, Nancy Sinatra, oooowwwwwwww, if it wasn't for Frank, I would made my move. Nancy, call me!
    Didn't mention him, but the incomparable Howard Roberts was in the Crew. "Howard Roberts Is a Dirty Guitar Player" was my bible. This was an uncommercial venture that still sounds hip today, unlike some of the commercial crap they had to do. I mean, who listens to Sony and Cher for entertainment?

  8. The soundtrack of my youth in Moundsview Minnesota listening to music on the am radio and to all of these hits … I became a drummer and still pound them skins and loved this tribute to your father..thanks for the memories Johnne in Clallam Bay WA

  9. I've read a lot & listened to many outtakes & interviews about these amazing musicians, and I'd say (and they say!) that many of the songs of that era would never have become hits without their magic. The hooks & riffs & arrangements they created were very often the main reason those songs were so catchy & memorable. They made huge hits out of forgettable songs. They should have been credited on the albums they recorded. Thanks so much for this film – it'll help set the record straight & tell the story of their massive and essential contribution to nearly every major hit in the '60s.

  10. They never let us know that session musicians did all the real work. We didn’t have a clue. And I am glad we didn’t. Wouldn’t have it any other way! 👍👍👍

  11. This was a TOTAL SURPRISE to me. I KNEW many of these people EXISTED – but I NEVER KNEW the "details" revealed. It's like having an

  12. I too grew up with all this music.I'm a life long musician too.What a Beautifully done Dedication to your Dad and all of the musicians.Thank You for the Documentary…

  13. In 1976 l bought A 65 chevelle 300 two door with Sony 8 track with Zeplin tape of houses of the wholly in quadraphonic . It was amazing through my Craig power plays !

  14. One of the best and most informative Docs in music I have ever seen. I knew of the WRECKING CREW. NOW I know ABOUT them! Without this group, music would NOT be as good as it was in the 60's, 70's, and 80's. They were geniuses

  15. This is a stunning documentary. Amazing musicians …. The Wrecking Crew was a secret society that only the biggest and brightest in the industry knew about.

  16. Pianist Mike Melvoin should also be included in this group….he didn't participate in the documentary but was also a big part of this scene…you can see him playing organ on the black and white film Good Vibrations recording session….

  17. I wish the Wrecking Crew was in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a group. Some of the members are individually in the R&RHOF as side men but not Carol Kaye?

  18. I heard about him making this movie way back and I believe it was 1994 on KPFK FM 90. Seven and they were just getting money together to put the film together that copyright issues that had to go through then but 10 years later I guess the first screening was done at Pasadena so I drove our down the Pasadena and watch the movie which wasn’t even released yet I think I paid 10 bucks to see it and then waiting on another 10 years I bought the CD or now you can see it on YouTube and we’re watching it now aren’t we has a long evolution and Tony Todesco Son put this whole thing together along with help very very impressive
