How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
It was looking behind the curtain. It's amazing to realize the Wrecking Crew played on some of the best LPs that came out of LA in the 60s instead of the groups themselves - a real eye-opener even for someone who has been in the biz since the early 70s. Great touch with Jerry Moss, Lou Adler and Herb Alpert giving Hal Blaine a "gold record' as he played on the #1 song 7 years in a row. I thought the editing could have been a bit better and it would have been nice if more musicians from that day allowed themselves to be interviewed, but it was a great doc...like "Standing in the Shadows of Motown" only with less music because they can't seem to get music rights. The one thing that was strange is they advertised "appearance by Nancy Sinatra & Friends" and the only time she was there was in the film. By the way it was advertised we all thought she was appearing live.

Help others enjoy a great night out
