[End]


1.  I have tried to make this classic Traffic song, more accessible on Capo 5.  I have played it through
with a few reservations about the Bm/A.  Although., it produces the closest sound to their ascending and
descending chords, that I can achieve.
2.  Much the song s appeal lies in the unique contributions from each band member.  David Lubin wrote
in his album review that appeared in Rolling Stone Magazine in 1972, "Each member of the group lays
down a track or tracks which could in parts stand alone."?
3.   The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys? (album) is the fifth studio album by English rock band Traffic,
released in 1971.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Low_Spark_of_High_Heeled_Boys
