The Wrecking Crew Movie Redux

I've written about the great Wrecking Crew movie before, but here's something different about it. It's an interview with producer Denny Tedesco along with some great clips from the movie. Unfortunately, it hasn't been released yet due to the fact that there are so many hit songs in it that the music licensing is enormous. It has won awards quite a few film festivals though.

Even if you don't know who the Wrecking Crew is, you've heard them before - a lot. They were the studio band for every hit that came out of LA in 60's and some of the 70's. The group played on almost every style of recording, including television theme songs, film scores, advertising jingles and almost every genre of music, with artists that included The Monkees, Bing Crosby, Nancy Sinatra, Bobby Vee, The Partridge Family, The Mamas & the Papas, The Carpenters, John Denver, Simon & Garfunkel and many more.

Enjoy this great clip. Find out more about the movie at Wrecking Crew

I've been trying to view this movie since it came out. Danny screens it regularly at trade shows, but I've never been able to get away long enough to watch it.

Fantastic! Many important ideas encapsulated in this that apply to anyones production and creative process. Don't be so precious and geeked about the technology that you miss the art (while it's happening). Great to see players given their due when they backed up so many that enjoyed the success and spotlight. Thanks for sharing this Bobby.
