Iona is a progressive rock album by Iona, released in 1990. This was the debut album from this group which progressed throughout occasional live appearances and an occasional appearance on record.

The recording process moved from place to place making good use of a number of studio facilities, including:

  • Studio 3, Leeds – (Engineer Steve Lea, Assisted by Rob Price)
  • Wildlife Studio, Ipswich – (Engineer Nigel Palmer)
  • The Field, Derbyshire – (Engineer Neil Costello)
  • Square One, Lancashire – (Engineer Steve Boyce-Buckley, Second Engineer Cliff Hewitt)
  • Cavalier Studio, Stockport – (Engineer John Harrison)

The recording was remastered for the 2002 release The River Flows: Anthology and later re-released on Open Sky Records as a standalone album.
