This is a wonderful item in many respects. First, these three 78 rpm records and booklet, bound in a beautiful hard cover are quite rare. I have seen copies with missing instructions or broken records. Second, Zingone was a fast and smooth professional card manipulator. Being able to hear him speak and perform tricks accompanied by his voice is a treat. And third, the six tricks taught are excellent.
You will receive a PDF that includes the instructions, photos of the original box, and six audio clips embedded in the PDF, one for each trick. (You can also download the audio clips as stand alone MP3 files from your digital shelf.)
Zingone recommends to use the records (in your case the MP3 files) for accompaniment, which means you don't even have to say a word during your performance. You just manipulate the cards to Zingone's voice, which makes it a lot easier and gives the performance a unique touch.
