RED VINYL LP LIMITED TO 100 COPIES AND INCLUDES A 3D SHEET OF THE COVER ARTWORK BY ORIGINAL ARTIST DENIS KITCHEN COMPLETE WITH 3D GLASSES
First official vinyl reissue of this sought-after psychedelic folk-rock/Americana/SSW album from 1976. Major Arcana was a group led by counter-culture Milwaukee icon Jim Spencer, featuring a revolving cast of musicians/collaborators. The core of the band was Jim Spencer (guitar, vocals), Randall Dubis (electric guitar), Michael Burdecki (bass, slide guitar) and Jim Kitchen (percussion, harmonica). They were helped in the studio by some friends/musicians like Sigmund Snopek III and Barry Patton among many others.
Released on Jim Spencer's own private label (A Major Label, home also to Anonymous of 'Inside The Shadow' fame), the album opens with the terrific psych-folk of 'Western Wind' and closes with an acid-folk rendition of 'Greensleeves.' In between, you'll also find some blues rock, SSW ballads, jazzy bits... File next to groups like Pearls Before Swine or Bermuda Triangle. Remastered sound. Original artwork with front cover by underground comix legend Denis Kitchen. Repro of the original poster insert by comic book artist Peter Poplaski. New insert with liner notes by Jim Spencer's close friend/collaborator Barry Patton and photos.
