Title: The Night Watch
Artist: King Crimson
Type: Live Album
Released: 1997
Recorded: November 23rd, 1973
Label: Discipline Globam Mobile

The Night Watch is a live album (2CD set) by the band King Crimson, released in 1997. This album contains an important performance in Crimson's career, being the source of the improvisations "Trio" and "Starless and Bible Black", the Fripp instrumental "Fracture" and the intro to the song "The Night Watch", all of which were included, with some editing, in the 1974 album Starless And Bible Black. The bulk of the concert was also broadcast at the time by the BBC and was subsequently heavily bootlegged. This led to the concert acquiring a legendary status among fans of the band, and eventually to it being one of the first archive releases from Robert Fripp's label DGM.
