Before the Flood signed soundtrack LP

UPDATE: Due to overwhelming demand, we will now be auctioning off this item to the highest bidder at Amoeba Hollywood Saturday, 4/22 at 4pm. 

In addition to Saturday, April 22nd being Record Store Day, it's also Earth Day! At Amoeba Hollywood, we're making the most out of the day with a very special fundraising event benefiting TerraPass, a San Francisco-based organization founded to offset carbon emissions and foster climate change awareness. They do a lot of really cool stuff -- wind power initiatives,  turning garbage into electricity through landfill gas captures, and producing energy from farm animal waste -- in local communities across the country. So, we're pretty excited to have acquired a vinyl version of the soundtrack to the 2016 documentary Before The Flood signed by Academy Award-winning composers Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross & Gustavo Santaolalla; we will auction off our one copy this Saturday at 4pm from the stage with all proceeds going directly to TerraPass.

Released in 2016, Before the Flood was produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Fisher Stevens, and friends to shine a light on the devastating impacts of climate change. Over the course of three years, the team traveled to locales around the world where residents are dealing with global warming and all its ills. In the documentary, DiCaprio et al. also take a look at some of the organizations working today to fight climate change, such as TerraPass.

Argentine Hippies

This is a concert film recorded in 1972 at the Buenos Aires Rock festival and it aired on Argentine television the following year. It's mostly live footage with some skits, ala The Song Remains The Same by Led Zeppelin. However, Rock Hasta Que Se Ponga El Sol pre-dates Zep's film by a few years. I'm not saying this is where Led McZeppelin got their ideas, but they have been known to steal a few blues songs in their time... Anyways, these bands from Argentina rock hard. You can find some of these releases in Amoeba Hollywood's Latin Rock section.

Color Humano
-"Larga Vida Al Sol"/"Coto De caza"/"Cosas Rústica"


Pescado Rabioso-"Nena" (one of Luis Alberto Spinetta's great bands)


Billy Bond Y Las Pesadas Del Rock
-"Tonto"


Arco Iris (with a very young and future Oscar winner Gustavo Santaolalla on guitar) -"Zapada"
