Sid Lorraine
Sid Lorraine by Sid Lorraine

This 60 minute recording includes the very best of the great Sid Lorraine. This is a happy mix of talk about magicians, how he got started in magic, heavily interspersed with magic you can do. There is a substitute for the pass, a gold fish bowl production (without the bowl), a card trick that baffled Blackstone.

Craige Snader in Magic Sounds said: "...it is great value as you get a magic lecture by one of the greats that you can listen to over and over. A great tape for study or just pleasant listening."

This is a digitally re-mastered (MP3) version of the original MagiCassette™ released...

James Randi
How to Present a Jail Break and other Miracles by James Randi

This is to certify that on December 4, 1974 at the Sumter County Jail, the Amazing Randi was fastened in two pair of regulation police handcuffs (double-locked) and one pair of special-issue handcuffs with pin-tumbler locks plus a pair of ratchet leg-irons, and then locked into a maximum-security jail cell. Within thirteen minutes, without assistance of any kind, Randi freed himself, walking out of the jail cell minus the handcuffs and leg-irons, all to the popular acclaim of the several people gathered at the jail. This was Randi's 28th jail break.

Randi was a great addition to our Crime...

Goodliffe
Dr. Alexander Cannon by Goodliffe

Dr. Cannon was probably magic's most unusual character. He lived for many years on the Isle of Man where he ran a healing sanctuary. He had his own fully equipped theatre - The Enchanted Hall. Goodliffe, who was afflicted by a crippling disease, was encouraged by Dr. Cannon to take a free course of treatment.

Goodliffe knew Cannon well as a result and provides an absorbing portrait of this man on the recording. Of course you hear Cannon speaking as well. Fraud, fake or genuine mystic? Decide for yourself after listening to yet another voice from the mysterious past.

Paul Gordon
Secrets of a Commercial Card Magician by Paul Gordon
"I have seen Paul performing many times now and I am amazed how he can captivate an audience with just one pack of ungimmicked playing cards. His act is full of comedy yet he cracks few jokes and above all he is a master of misdirection. I know no one else who sets off for top venues with his act in his pockets. As he says, "I wear my act". He takes a back up pack of cards and sometimes a couple of close up items and he is set for complete show." - Martin Breese

Edwin the Supreme Magician by Edwin Hooper

This is the story of Edwin, told in his own words and recorded by Martin Breese at the Supreme Magic Headquarters in Devon in the late 1970s.

Ian Adair, who provides a 10 min introduction before the interview with Edwin starts, wrote:

Edwin Hooper was a remarkable man. And when I say he spent a lifetime in magic, I really mean that. Day by day, hour by hour he was solely devoted to magic and magicians. He lived for magic. He loved performing and he loved creating magic. He thrilled at manufacturing magical equipment but, like us all, he had his likes and dislikes. Edwin really enjoyed his food....
