At last here's a vinyl reissue of a rare and sought after private press LP that came out of the small but heady scene of 1970s Milwaukee. Led by Jim Spencer -who was a major player in the Wisconsin underground both as a musician and a writer/publisher of counterculture magazines, including 'Freek'-, Major Arcana released this lone LP in 1975. Generating comparisons to Pearls Before Swine and, of course, Bob Dylan, Major Arcana's s/t LP benefits from subtle musicianship, refined arrangements and quality songwriting. Covering ground from folk, to hippie tinged pop, to jazz, to blues-rock, the album is held together by Spencer's distinct voice and poetic spirit. A classic piece of the 1970's hippie underground that fetches serious coin at auction is available again for less than an arm and a leg.
