Fountains of Light is the second studio album by American progressive rock band Starcastle. It was their first of two albums to be produced by Roy Thomas Baker, of Queen renown.

Car accident[edit]

While driving to Le Studio on icy mountain roads, the band was following Roy Thomas Baker in their own vehicle and was involved in a car accident that sent bassist Gary Strater to the hospital. Roy Thomas Baker has said making the album was fun, but "a complete disaster" from the very first day.[3]
