ARROW RECORDS present Stelvio Cipriani’s stunning soundtrack to THE IGUANA WITH THE TONGUE OF FIRE, the gloriously excessive thriller directed with aplomb by Italian craftsman RICCARDO FREDA.
An archetypal giallo from the genre’s halcyon era, Freda’s film spins a tawdry tale of brutal murder and sleaze amongst the milieu of the Swiss Ambassador to Ireland. These grim proceedings are offset by a luxurious and melodious score by STELVIO CIPRIANI, the unfaltering Italian composer whose captivating compositions grace some of the finest Italian genre films. With this soundtrack we are treated to a series of sophisticated arrangements by turns silky, scary, romantic and delirious, some of which feature the delectable vocals of NORA ORLANDI.
This translucent purple vinyl edition is limited to 500 copies. The recording has been newly mastered from the original analogue tapes by JAMES PLOTKIN and is presented on 180 gram wax housed inside a 350gsm sleeve. Featuring newly commissioned artwork by GRAHAM HUMPHREYS and accompanying liner notes by HOWARD HUGHES.
