Ennio Morricone's 'A Lizard in a Woman's Skin' Gets Deluxe Vinyl Reissue via Death Waltz
After having served up a steady stream of classic soundtracks over the last few years, Death Waltz Recording Company has now announced a new reissue from one of the scoring world's greatest treasures: Ennio Morricone. A deluxe vinyl pressing of the master composer's work for Lucio Fulci's 1971 giallo film Una Lucertola Con La Pelle Di Donna (a.k.a. A Lizard in a Woman's Skin) officially goes up for sale this weekend.

A press release confirms that copies of the double LP will be on sale this Sunday (October 26). While versions of the score had previously been issued on CD and LP as recently as 2000, this vinyl edition balloons the package to 24 tracks, with the 90-minute runtime featuring several added cues (much like the recent double-CD edition via Beat Records).

Packaging-wise, the soundtrack arrives in a limited edition of 500 copies with one platter pressed onto pink and yellow swirl, and the accompanying record on green and blue swirl. A standard edition features one record on transparent blue and the other on transparent green. The gatefold sleeve also houses a poster of the cover art, which you can see up above, and liner notes from Andrea Morandi and Stephen Thrower.

A press release notes that Morricone's work on Una Lucertola Con La Pelle Di Donna mixes elements of funk and jazz with "increasingly uncomfortable effects." To highlight the film's "hedonistic nightmares" and "narcotic-fuelled orgies," the master composer employed the vocals of regular collaborator Edda dell'Orso and "eerie woodwinds" that come across "like coyote howls."

Below, you'll find the tracklist, as well as a player streaming the entire album.
