As the business of music continues to evolve it’s key to stay in tune with where it’s been.
On March 13 “The Wrecking Crew” documentary film opened in theaters in LA and NYC, but it also released on, On Demand and iTunes which gave this independent film a wide and diverse audience. This is a fantastic opportunity for a generation of younger, digital entertainment consumers to view this film about a non-digital era of popular music history in America. This USA Today article features Don Randi who was a key member of the leading group of recording session musicians seen in the film and contributes noteworthy content in “The Wrecking Crew” doc. http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2015/03/11/the-wrecking-crew-music-documentary/24724437/
Don Randi goes deeper into the creative phenomenon of the Wall of Sound to the Wrecking Crew from hit records in mono to multi-track stereo recordings and the evolution to digital recording in his upcoming book, “You’ve Heard These Hands.” Set to release in September, Don Randi’s biography is a project I worked on with him for the last three years and will be published just in time for a public amazed by the stories of music legends, like Don Randi, who led the way behind-the-scenes of some of the greatest recording success stories of an era that still inspires top music artists of today.
