Starcastle ‎– Starcastle (1976)

Starcastle is the 1976 debut album by the American sextet of the same name. The music is noted for its contrapuntal density among the instrumentalists, each of whom are rendered with tonal clarity by Tommy Vicari’s state-of-the-art production. Side one is dominated by the anthemic “Forces” and the multisectional epic “Lady of the Lake” while the flip is bookended with the astral-themed instrumentals “Stargate” and “Nova.”
