The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys somehow captures or maybe even sums up what it feels like to be young, unique and creative and conveys that to the listener, when you listen to it you feel young and certain and empowered. The album is cosidered to be one of the highest moments in rock music and is one of those very few that still shine 40 years on.

I was 14 years old when I bought my first Traffic album and and went to see the band live at that unforgettable gig in the Fairfield Halls Croydon (welcome to the Canteen - the band played for three hours and there was something almost unreal happening), but I remain as mysteriously moved and enriched by this album now as I did then. The desparately sad death of Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood mean that whatever it was that happened back in the late 60's and early 70's with these truely creative musicians has passed for ever and even though John Barleycorn is also simply magical, here remains their finest work.

The title track and Many a Mile to Freedom are often stated as Traffic's best songs but everything on the album is special - this is one of the very few rock albums that will survive the test of time.

Another magnificent album from one of my very favourite rock bands. Forty odd years of listening and I still love it as much as I did when I bought it on vinyl.
