Traffic – The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys

 

The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys is the sixth 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. The title of the album was suggested by the actor Michael J. Pollard.

The album features the hit “Rock & Roll Stew (part 1)” and the FM hit, “The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys.” This is the only original Traffic album to feature two lead vocals by Jim Capaldi (“Light Up Or Leave Me Alone” and “Rock & Roll Stew”). His only other unaccompanied vocal on a Traffic studio album was “Dealer” from Mr. Fantasy. The LP is also notable for its die-cut cover.

“Light Up Or Leave Me Alone” has occasionally been covered live by noted jam band Phish.

Low Spark of High Heeled Boys was remastered and reissued with one bonus track on March 19, 2002.
