The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys is the fifth studio album by English rock band Traffic, released in 1971. It was their first album to feature percussionist Rebop Kwaku Baah and their only album to feature drummer Jim Gordon and bassist Ric Grech. Grech had previously worked with Traffic singer/multi-instrumentalist Steve Winwood in the short-lived supergroup Blind Faith while Gordon had played with another former Blind Faith member, Eric Clapton in the similarly short-lived Derek and the Dominoes.
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 name of the album's title track was suggested by the actor Michael J. Pollard.
The album features the hit "Rock & Roll Stew" 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. His only other unaccompanied vocal on a Traffic studio album was "Dealer" from Mr. Fantasy.
The LP's front cover is notable for its top right and bottom left corners being clipped, giving the illusion of a three-dimensional cube.
