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.

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.

The name of the album's. an album that's easy to listen to over and over, but one that seldom shows up on 'best of' lists.

High heeled glam rock types with a low spark (as in low talent). Just before the release of this album Steve was in some bitter nasty negotiation with his music label. The high heeled, long hair, screaming guitar, bands had come on the scene and Steve's label want him to conform to this for his last album that he was under contract to do. Well Steve would not compromise himself or his music so a few music executives could get rich.
