Deep Space/Virgin Sky is a 1995 album by Jefferson Starship recorded live at the House of Blues in West Hollywood on the Sunset Strip. The concert was performed as a benefit memorial concert for Papa John Creach with proceeds going to his family. The original album rearranged the order of songs as performed and was divided into two parts with the first half featuring new material and the second half of the album featuring the classic hits of Jefferson Starship and Jefferson Airplane, including an appearance by Grace Slick performing vocals on "Law Man", "Wooden Ships", "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit". It was the first time she had performed on stage since 1989. In 2003, the entire concert was released as a double CD entitled "Deeper Space / Extra Virgin Sky" with the original order of the performance restored.
