Summer has arrived and with it comes our third series of Summer Albums of the Week. Every Saturday between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend here at The Musical Box, we will serve up a tasty platter from summers gone by that embraces, expounds and expands the notion of “summer music.” And the first platter is…

Time Loves a Hero. One of Little Feat’s most commercially visible albums, it is also the record where founder Lowell George takes a conspicuous back seat role in its design. Guitarist Paul Barrere carries on with the band’s askew, slide-driven sound with delights like Old Folks Boogie while keyboardist Bill Payne counters with the truly summery title tune. But a blast of instrumental fusion, Day at the Dog Races, set the Feat in very different motion. An altogether appealing seasonal listen.
