THE LOW SPARK OF HIGH HEELED BOYS
Nothing in particular to say about this one, except that it's a very fine album. Dave Mason had exited the group (again), leaving Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi as the main composers. Laid back jazz rock is what you'll find here, with the title track winning honors as the stand out from the pack. Winwood's Blind Faith accomplice Ric Grech plays bass and scores a co-write ("Rock & Roll Stew").
Excellent disc to throw on as a soundtrack for getting things done. I'm listening to it as I write and lift 12 ounce weights. Multi tasking at its finest.
Yes, these guys were underrated geniuses. See for yourself.
