There’s a positive review of the music documentary The Wrecking Crew on the Variety website. The documentary features some of the Los Angeles studio musicians who recorded many of the hits of the nineteen-sixties.

The film features legendary musicians such as Carol Kaye, Plas Johnson, Tommy Tedesco, Earl Palmer, Hal Blaine, Don Randi and stars like Nancy Sinatra, Cher, Brian Wilson and Glen Campbell.

  1. I saw the film and feel that if was very informational except for one thing – Earl Palmer did not receive the credit that was due to him. He may have been ill during the taping of the doucumentary but the words and photo’s that could have been used were not. I feel ‘Make It Funky’ tells much more of what was missing (as far as the story of Earl) in ‘The Wrecking Crew’
    Many of the jobs that Hal Blaine is credited for had to do with the fact that Earl was so over booked, he gave those appointments to Hal. Don’t get me wrong, Mr Blaine was a great drummer as well, but it appears in ‘The Wrecking Crew’ that he was the main drummer used, and that is simply not true. I will debate this issue with anyone who cares to challenge my nowledge of the story!
