Jefferson Starship is an American rock band formed in the early 1970s by several members of the former Jefferson Airplane. The band has undergone several major changes in personnel and genres through the years while retaining the same Jefferson Starship name. It is not to be confused with Starship, a spin-off of the group featuring former co-lead singer Mickey Thomas that also periodically tours.
No Protection is the second album by Starship. The album featured the hit single "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now", and the Top 10 hit "It's Not Over", the former of which was included on the soundtrack of the fantasy comedy movie Mannequin and the latter of which was a tune originally performed the previous year by one-time Manfred Mann's Earth Band frontman Chris Thompson for Playing for Keeps soundtrack. Pete Sears departed the band after the recording of the first single "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" before Starship was reduced to a quartet for the remainder of the album. This was the last album to be produced for Grunt Records, and the final Starship album to feature Grace Slick on vocals; she left Starship in 1988 and rejoined Jefferson Airplane for their reunion tour and self-titled reunion album, Jefferson Airplane in 1989. The Diane Warren-penned ballad "Set the Night to Music" would become a hit four years later in 1991, as a duet between R&B legend Roberta Flack and reggae singer Maxi Priest, as released from Flack's album Set the Night to Music.
