King Crimson Live at Summit Studios is a live album of radio session recordings by the band King Crimson, released by the Discipline Global Mobile label through the King Crimson Collectors' Club[1] in February 2000. The album was recorded at Summit Studios, Denver, Colorado, United States, 12 March 1972. The performance was notable for the absence of the band's trademark Mellotron, resulting in an unusual setlist and the inclusion of two lengthy collective improvisations.

The liner notes to Live at Summit Studios were written by drummer Ian Wallace,[2] who discusses the Denver show and chronicles his involvement with King Crimson throughout 1971 and 1972.

It was later re-released on a DVD Audio win the 40th Anniversary Edition of the live album Earthbound.
