The talented studio musicians behind some of the biggest hits from Frank Sinatra, The Monkees, The Beach Boys, and more are finally getting their due. The Wrecking Crew documentary celebrates the men and woman (bassist Carol Kaye) who helped create the iconic West Coast sound of the ‘60s and ‘70s. The feature film, directed by Danny Tedesco (son of the group’s legendary guitarist, Tommy Tedesco) gives viewers a peek into the studio and lets them witness musical history as it happened. The film had a limited theatrical run earlier this year, but will be released on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow, June 16.
