For six years in a row (1966-1971), the Grammy Award for "Record of the Year" was recorded by Wrecking Crew members, a group of Studio Musicians in Los Angeles who played with some of the biggest groups and on some of the biggest hits of the 1960s and '70s. If you’ve listened to the Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, Sonny and Cher, Jan & Dean, The Monkees, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, Leonard Cohen, Mamas and Papas, Tijuana Brass, Ricky Nelson, and Johnny Rivers, you’ve heard The Wricking Crew. The group was also Phil Spector's Wall of Sound.

For a good eight years The Wrecking Crew recorded around the clock: From "Be My Baby" to "California Girls”, "Strangers in the Night" and "Mrs. Robinson”, "You've Lost that Lovin' Feelin” and "Up, Up and Away”, "Viva Las Vegas" to "Mr. Tambourine Man”, The Wrecking Crew played on them all.

One of the most endearing and internationally renowned films of all time, a film that Roger Ebert called “one of the five best movies” ever made for children, MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO is a deceptively simple tale of two girls, Satsuki and Mei, who move with their father to a new house in the countryside. They soon discover that the surrounding forests are home to a family of Totoros, gentle but powerful creatures who live in a huge and ancient camphor tree and are seen only by children.
