  • Genre(s): Music, Documentary
  • Rating: NR

What the Funk Brothers did for Motown…The Wrecking Crew did, only bigger, for the West Coast Sound. Six years in a row in the 1960s and early 1970s, the Grammy for Record of the Year went to Wrecking Crew recordings. And now, The Wrecking Crew tells the story in pictures and that oh, so glorious sound. The favorite songs of a generation are all here, presented by the people who made them for you.

"This nostalgia-drenched rockumentary remains a hugely entertaining treasure trove of witness-at-creation anecdotes and enduringly potent ’60s pop hits."
- Joe Leydon, Variety
"There’s a similar shared joy among the participants, a similar sense of discovery for the viewer, and, of course, a killer soundtrack."
- Mark Feeney, Boston Globe
"genius, virtuosity and genuine revelatory insight, they take viewers to a higher place."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"The enlightening and necessary film, narrated by an adoring Denny, is very much in the vein of 2002’s "Standing in the Shadows of Motown," a documentary that celebrated the Funk Brothers, the criminally unheralded house band at Berry Gordy Jr.’s hit-making studio in Detroit. But where "Standing in the Shadows" of Motown used re-enactments and new live performances, The Wrecking Crew is composed mostly of archival footage and newish interviews."
- Brad Wheeler, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
