The Night Watch is a terrific live album capturing the third incarnation of King Crimson -- featuring Robert Fripp, John Wetton, Bill Bruford, and David Cross -- at the Amsterdam Covertgebouw on November 23, 1973. Some Crimson fans consider this lineup to be the most musically adept in the band's history, and the dense, yet dexterous, playing will tell any curious listener exactly why this is so. It remains an album that will primarily please the diehards, but for those fans, The Night Watch is an essential purchase.
