MAJOR ARCANA - Same (A Major Label ) 1976 Midwest Folk Psych

(A Major Label)
1976 R1
On the same label as Anonymous, an album of West Coast psych folk, with Sigmund Snopek of the Bloomsbury People and Jim Spencer.
Additional participants are thought to have included Jay Borkenhagen (ex-Baroques), Tom Ruppenthal and Rob Fixmer. Jim Spencer, now sadly deceased, had other Milwaukee releases.

Artist/publisher Denis Kitchen's brother Jim was in a Milwaukee-based band called Major Arcana with the late Jim Spencer in the mid-70s. This is the only album cover Kitchen ever created, but his psychedlelic image became a minor classic (it also inspired a surrealistic follow-up "story" in the underground comic Mondo Snarfo). He remembers spending "ninety hours" on the intricate cover ("and it wasn't a cash job!"). The music holds up well too. Had Spencer not died at a very early age, he and his group would likely have been commercially successful. But the group achieved only regional and brief fame.
