The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys is the fifth studio album by English rock band Traffic, released in 1971. As with other Traffic albums, The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys featured different forms and offshoots of rock including jazz rock, progressive rock, as well as classic rock and roll.

High heeled glam rock types with a low spark (as in low talent). Just before the release of this album Steve was in some bitter nasty negotiation with his music label. The high heeled, long hair, screaming guitar, bands had come on the scene and Steve's label want him to conform to this for his last album that he was under contract to do. Well Steve would not compromise himself or his music so a few music executives could get rich.

The low spark of high-heeled boys. 2. Much the song’s appeal lies in the unique contributions from each band member. 3. ‘The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys’ (album) is the fifth studio album by English rock band Traffic, released in 1971.

But where their previous album had grown out of sessions for a Steve Winwood solo album and retained that focus, Low Spark pointedly contained changes of pace from his usual contributions of midtempo, introspective jam tunes. 01.

TITLE added to MP3 cart. The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys. Renews automatically. This pressing is absolutely horrendous. For a 180g vinyl album, it is noisy with a lot of pops on the first listening. You can clearly see flaws in the grooves. It's really unfortunate because it's such a great album.
