Traffic’s ‘Hole in my shoe’ (Leaping Ahead #128)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #128: 160507

[Song from 1967]

Composed by guitarist Dave Mason and released in August 1967, ‘Hole in my shoe’ was disliked by the other three members of the group who felt that it did not represent the band’s musical or lyrical style. The brief monologue, over the mellotron passage, is spoken by Francine Heimann, the stepdaughter of Island Records’ owner Chris Blackwell.
