4 CD

Deluxe 4 CD box set featuring many of the biggest hits that the Wrecking Crew played on for
numerous artists and bands, including The Beach Boys, The Monkees, The Mamas & The
Papas, The Byrds, Jan & Dean, Righteous Brothers, Herb Albert, Ray Charles, Sonny
& Cher, Seals and Crofts
and dozens more
3 CDs are filled with hits and interviews about the songs and the 4th CD is called The Crew
Cuts which is filled with songs cut under the musicians' own names 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 deluxe 4CD box set 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.
The Wrecking Crew album is 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.
