The Wrecking Crew was the ?house? band for West Coast Pop/Rock hits from the U.S. in the mid-60?s. The combined fire-power of these studio giants performed on countless hits helping fuel tens of millions of dollars in single and album sales. If you listened to songs by The Beach Boys, Glen Campbell, The Fifth Dimension, The Mamas & The Papas, The Turtles, The Monkees and scores of other bands, they all relied on spontaneous tasty licks and fills these pros provided to flesh out and finish their ideas.

This LP illustrates part of the story of "The Wrecking Crew". This is the first time this grouping of songs has ever been put together. Each song was chosen because of a connection to the Wrecking Crew session musicians. The credits of the musicians listed were compiled from the contracts provided by the American Federation of Musicians.

This LP is being released as a companion to Wienerworld?s award-winning DVD The Wrecking Crew (WNRD2591), the music-filled documentary that tells the story of the unsung musicians. The Wrecking Crew brought the flair and musicianship that made the American ?West Coast Sound? a dominant cultural force around the world.
