"I love this film and didn’t want it to end. Whether you’re a music lover in general or a baby boomer harboring affection for the tunes of your time, make a beeline for any theater showing The Wrecking Crew. It’s a gem."
- Leonard Maltin
“Their story has taken decades to reach the screen. IT HAS BEEN WORTH THE WAIT. An invaluable record of a kind of rock golden age.”
– Kenneth Turan, LA Times
"**** FANTASTIC. ADD IT TO THE LIST OF MUST-SEE POP MUSIC DOCUMENTARIES. An eye-popping barrage of archival footage.”
-Jim Slotek, Toronto Sun
"Much congratulations to you for undertaking the project and for delivering it in such a wonderful way. For me it was educational, entertaining and thoroughly engrossing..."
"It was incredible! I felt just like I was sitting there with them at that table. It had everything I wanted to see and more that I didn't expect. Tommy's humor drew you in and the lifelong respect for each other was so evident. Thank you for making this film because it shows that these legendary musicians, who we listen to everyday, are anything but invisible!!!!!!"
"Like the Funk Brothers being the backbone of the Motown Sound, the Wrecking Crew were the backbone of the L.A. Sound. This group of musicians played on and created hundreds of hits that became the soundtrack to our lives in the 60s and 70s and are still on radio today. I would recommend this DVD to anyone who likes music and who doesn't? It's an historical peek and inside look at the backbone of American hit parade music that rocked the world."
-Randy Bachman- Guess Who, & BTO
"I loved the film, thank you for bringing to light the story behind one of the most important musical ensembles of the modern recording era..."
-Chad Smith, Red Hot Chili Peppers
"If I'd known they were available, I would have used those guys on my records. 'The Wrecking Crew' is the best documentary yet about the recording scene. I loved it. "

"Music can be many things to many people. That is what makes it so fascinating as an art form. It's subtleties and nuances are not easily expressed in words yet are easily felt as an impact on the senses. This film tells the story of the unsung heroes of a musical era that can never be duplicated. If you've ever wondered who REALLY played on most of your favorite records, you're about to find out."
"That's really how it was. These were The Greats- the best of the best! They made the music to the sound tracks of our lives. This offering gives us insight into the minds, the art and the soul of these creative musicians. "
- Jose Feliciano
