Synopsis

Collectively, their roster of hit songs is unmatched in the recording industry, numbering in the hundreds and spanning decades. They've been instrumental in helping a diverse array of popular artists on their path to stardom - from The Beach Boys to Frank and Nancy Sinatra; from The 5th Dimension to Sam Cooke; from The Carpenters to Cher. They'd crafted some of pop music's most timeless and recognizable songs. And yet, outside the industry, few could name a single member. They are The Wrecking Crew.
