"Across the Sea of Suns" is Jefferson Starship's second live album. The album was produced by using recordings from four different live venues: The Bottom Line in New York City; The IMAC at Huntington, NY; New Park Entertaiment in Philadelphia; and The Keswick Theatre in Glenside, PA. The album had further studio production at American Recording in Calabasas, CA. Most of the tracks used for the final album were from The Bottom Line, and none of the tracks recorded in Philadelphia were used. The album was released as a double CD. Grace Slick provided liner notes, writing her own thoughts about sixteen of the songs included.
