just gonna chat about them for a few lines.
in case you never heard of the wrecking crew, they were a group of studio musicians that were active from the early 50's till maybe very early
i dont really know how to explain what i want to say.
so lets think mid 60's. pick a group. the beach boys or sonny and cher. whatever.
you get your record of that group when it first comes out and you listen and the music is just awesome(cause it is).... what people didnt/dont get is
people were not listening to who they thought.
they assumed that the band was playing the music/instruments on the record. that wasnt the case.
it was a bad ass group of studio musicians called the wrecking crew. they played/recorded on thousands of songs.
anyway.... if youre interested
The Wrecking Crew's members were musically versatile but typically had formal backgrounds in jazz or classical music. The talents of this group of
"first call" players were used on almost every style of recording including television theme songs, film scores, advertising jingles and almost
every genre of American popular music, from The Monkees to Bing Crosby. Notable artists employing the Wrecking Crew's talents included Nancy Sinatra,
Bobby Vee, The Partridge Family, The Mamas & the Papas, The Carpenters, The 5th Dimension, John Denver, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, and Nat
just saying... i think its great.
if you get into it there is a fairly new documentary out about them.
and for the record carol kaye is one of the best bass players of all time
