Live at Plymouth Guildhall is a live album (2-CD set) by the band King Crimson, released through the King Crimson Collectors' Club[1] on the Discipline Global Mobile label in December 2000. [2] The album was recorded at the Guildhall in Plymouth, UK on 11 May 1971.

This concert was the fifth ever live performance by the Islands version of King Crimson. The CD release was adapted from the original soundboard tape, mixed by Peter Sinfield. An audience bootleg was added to repair the missing introduction to "Get Thy Bearings".

The liner notes were written by drummer Ian Wallace. Referring to his drum part in "Sailor's Tale", Wallace writes, "I really like what I'm doing, so much so, that I might have to steal it back from myself!"
