4 stars Almost at their zenith in terms of creative output, The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys is a stunning piece of music which arguably is one of Traffic's finest moments.Everything including the tempo on Low Sparks gels together perfectly from the opening " Hidden Treasure" and the epic twelve minute tiitle track onwards. The percussion playing from Reebop Kwaku Baah interracts well with the rest of the band spelling out a similar percussive theme in albums to follow." Many A Mile To Freedom" also has Winwood pitching his unique vocal style supported by Capaldi's thumping drum beats. The least appealing track is the closing ' Rainmaker' but overall a solid excellent studio album by one of the most underrated bands of the early 70's.
