    MAJOR ARCANA ALBUM with DENIS KITCHEN cover. (1975).

    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.

    Relatively few Major Arcana albums were manufactured (probably about 2,500). An 11 x 17" bonus poster by artist Peter Poplaski is also inside the jacket. This album is highly collectible in Japan. We are aware of at least five sales in the past year or two to Japanese dealers in the $300 wholesale range (seller Bill Frickensmith of Recycled Records in Milwaukee can confirm this)! Though our remaining few copies of this 33 rpm album are mint/near mint, ours sell for a much more modest $175.00. (Autographed on request on front or back.)

    If you like this intricate and trippy "Major Arcana" image, a spectacular 50-level 3-D signed print of it with glasses (as well as an inexpensive unsigned poster) can also be purchased in this Curio Shoppe. Look in the respective art print or poster sections or use "Kitchen 3-D" as a search words.
