Down to Earth has the subtitle "Love Songs." It is a slash Starsky and Hutch filk zine by April Valentine. It is a collection of original songs, all related to Starsky and Hutch. It is digest-sized, is fifteen pages long and originally came with a cassette tape of April performing the music. Songbook illustrations were done by Carol Davis, Jean C., TACS and Lynna Bright.

The filk songbook was dedicated to Kendra Hunter.

From the zine:
This songbook and tape represent a number of 'firsts' -- it's my first solo effort (for the last eight years I've performed with the filk group Omicron Ceti III), my first Starsky and Hutch publication and, to the best of my knowledge, the first collection of original songs inspired by Starsky and Hutch. They've been fun composing and recording. I hope you enjoy listening and singing along... These are love songs. They are one way of expressing the special feeling that exists between two men who we all agree care very much for each other. They lyrics are not in any way explicit, but they do acknowledge the premise [1] and the possibility of that love expressing itself physically. If you object to such a premise, perhaps these aren't songs you'll enjoy. However, if you believe... sing along.

Fan Comments

On SH filking, the only tape I know of is Martha's Down to Earth. It costs five dollars plus postage. It has some upbeat songs and some slower love songs. I really like it. [2]
