"Earth" is a 1978 album by Jefferson Starship. The album was recorded in 1977. The band lineup was the same as it was for the previous album, Spitfire. The band had not toured in 1977, partly due to Marty's reluctance to commit fully to the band. The song "Count on Me" became a Top-10 single, peaking at #8. The album itself hit #5 on the Billboard charts. A US and European tour followed. Success of this album led to Jefferson Starship being contacted to provide a song for the Star Wars Holiday Special.
