The Immediate Family continues the story that began with documentary The Wrecking Crew – here are the details.

You may not know the names of The Wrecking Crew, a group of session musicians formed by Phil Spector in the 1960s, but you will definitely have heard their work. From Brian Wilson’s masterwork Pet Sounds to Be My Baby by The Ronettes, the musicians played on thousands of sessions, which included many of the most enduring singles and albums of the 1960s and 1970s.

Their story was chronicled by director Denny Tedesco in 2008 documentary The Wrecking Crew, in which he interviewed drummer Hal Blaine, bassist Carol Kaye and many of the other musicians involved.

Now, Tedesco is returning to continue their story in The Immediate Family, which will “take up the story where The Wrecking Crew ended, taking a deep dive through some of the most famous and influential session musicians from the 1970s.”

Musicians interviewed in the film include Carole King, Linda Ronstadt, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, Lyle Lovett, Keith Richards, Don Henley, Stevie Nicks and Phil Collins.

The Immediate Family will be released in the US in December, although no UK date has been confirmed.
