Kent Hartman - The Wrecking Crew

  • Listen:
    Kent Hartman On World Cafe David Dye sits down with the author of The Wrecking Crew, a history of the influential L.A. group of backing musicians.

Almost every record you know that was a 1960s radio hit had a secret weapon — a crew of L.A. backing musicians known as "The Wrecking Crew." This group, which included the likes of Glen Campbell, Hal Blaine and Carol Kaye, helped artists ranging from the Partridge Family to the Beach Boys make great-sounding albums.

On today's World Cafe David Dye sits down with Kent Hartman, author of a new book about the influential group of backing musicans, and plays a few of the many songs they helped make hits.
