Factory Sealed 1994 Foil Numbered, Limited Edition, Half Speed Mastered 200gm Anadisc Housed In A Deluxe Gatefold Cover. This Is Low Number 0243. Pristine Copy. “The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys Marked The Commercial And Artistic Apex Of The Second Coming Of Traffic. "Rock & Roll Stew" Was An Up Tempo Treatise On Life On The Road, While Jim Capaldi's "Light Up Or Leave Me Alone" Was Another More Aggressive Number With An Unusually Emphatic Capaldi Vocal That Perked Things Up On Side Two. The Other Four Tracks Were Winwood/Capaldi Compositions More In The Band's Familiar Style. "Hidden Treasure" And "Rainmaker" Bookended The Disc With Acoustic Treatments Of Nature Themes That Were Particularly Concerned With Water, And "Many A Mile To Freedom" Also Employed Water Imagery. But The Standout Was The 12-Minute Title Track, With Its Distinctive Piano Riff And Its Lyrics Of Weary Disillusionment With The Music Business. The Band Had Only Just Fulfilled A Contractual Commitment By Releasing The Live Album Welcome To The Canteen, And They Had In Their Past The Embarrassing Last Exit Album Thrown Together As A Commercial Stopgap During A Temporary Breakup In 1969. But That Anger Had Proven Inspirational, And "The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys" Was One Of Traffic's Greatest Songs As Well As Its Longest So Far. The Result Was An Album That Quickly Went Gold (And Eventually Platinum) In The U.S., Where The Group Toured Frequently.” William Ruhlmann, AMG.
