“Time Loves a Hero” is the sixth studio album by the American rock band Little Feat, released in 1977. The album cover depicts the Cattolica di Stilo which is a church in Italy, but the background is the town of San Miguel de Allende Mexico and the statue in front of the Cattolica di Stilo is in San Miguel de Allende.
When Little Feat headed into the studio to record “Time Loves a Hero”, tensions between the bandmembers — more specifically, Lowell George and the rest of the band — were at a peak. George had not only succumbed to various addictions, but he was growing restless with the group’s fondness for extending their jams into territory strikingly reminiscent of jazz fusion.
