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.

Album The Definitive Collection. The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys Lyrics. If you see something that looks like a star And it's shooting up out of the ground And your head is spinning from a loud guitar. And you just can't escape from the sound Don't worry too much, it'll happen to you We were children once, playing with toys. And the thing that disturbs you is only the sound Of the low spark of high-heeled boys. Chorus The percentage you're paying is too high priced While you're living beyond all your means And the man in the suit has just bought a new car From the profit he's made on your dreams. But today you just read that the man was shot dead By a gun that didn't make any noise But it wasn't the bullet that laid him to rest Was the low spark of high-heeled boys, high-heeled boys

The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys marked the commercial and artistic apex of the second coming of Traffic, which had commenced in 1970 with John Barleycorn Must Die. The trio that made that album had been augmented by three others (Ric Grech, Jim Gordon, and "Reebop" Kwaku Baah) in the interim, though apparently the Low Spark sessions featured varying combinations of these musicians, plus some guests.

Before I left Morocco, Pollard wrote in my book 'The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys. For me, it summed him up. He had this tremendous rebel attitude. Dave Mason had left the band at that point, but Traffic added some new members for the Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys album, including former Derek & the Dominos drummer Jim Gordon, which allowed Capaldi to focus more on vocals. Original member Chris Wood played the prominent saxophone parts on this track. When Traffic toured in 1972, this was a highlight of their live shows. For that tour, they brought along two of America's finest session musicians: bassist David Hood and drummer Roger Hawkins from Muscle Shoals Sound Studios (Traffic would record their next album with these guys)
