It looks like L&L has released Osterlind's latest DVD set. Not shot at L&L, but at a comedy club in Reno with a regular audience. Looks like a great set.

It’s nice to see a full live effect like that. I might order those DVD’s. I’ve learned a lot from Richard over the years.

These have long been waited for, Richard in his regular act. Sure hope they do not get exposed on CA's site this time around.

I hope so as well! Such a true performer and must say I am very exited for this to arrive. Maybe Janelle will make a guest appearance? Would be nice.

LOL, Janelle. L n L hall of fame for sure. Then there is Frank (laugh), and that guy on the front row, forget his name. Longer hair, gift of gab.

Disc 1 - The Stage Show

Linking Rings – Richard uses Dai Vernon’s classic “Symphony of the Rings” as his entertaining opener. He proves that magic and mentalism can be mixed effectively in a performance to win over the audience’s approval!

Spoon Bend – Here Richard segues into some of his classic spoon bending techniques to set a more serious tone for the performance. Watch how strong this routine plays for a lay audience!

Mental Epic – Richard uses the standard Mental Epic effect with the Ronnie Gann finish, showing how strong classic mentalism can be. Then, he destroys the audience with his own double-climax ending!

Par-Optic Vision – This is the routine with Richard’s Dynamo Deck that recently wowed Internet audiences. A spectator draws cards Richard names out of his own pocket! It looks totally impossible!

Q & A Act – If ever there was a routine that proves you can read minds, this is it! The classic Dunninger routine is presented by Richard with a few modern updates.

The Addition Effect – Richard does the classic Add-a-Number effect using ordinary articles. Again, a classic Dunninger routine is re-created in a modern setting!

Combination Padlock – An original routine by Richard where audience members choose the correct numbers to open a combination lock in a new and novel way. This is a study in routining magic!

Clip Line – A stunning presentation of Alpha-Mental with an ending Osterlind devised over 20 years ago. Just when you think the effect is over, you are hit with an incredible second climax! The audience loves it!

Disc 2 - Stage Show Encore and After-Show Party

Linking Finger Rings – Richard chose to re-visit his classic handling of this effect for the encore of his show. Watch the stunned looks on the spectators’ faces when they see their own wedding rings linked together!

Artificial Intelligence – Richard performs the triple-prediction effect from his book, Mystique, using nothing but three index cards. The handling and effect is everything you could want in a close-up routine!

iCornelius – Richard uses a borrowed iPhone to reproduce the addition effect he performed on stage. If anything, the effect here is even stronger!

Dr. Sack’s Dice Routine – Again, Richard shows that a mystery performer can effectively mix magic and mentalism in a show. Here he performs the classic Sack’s Dice Routine while completely surrounded by astonished spectators!

Double Penny Bend (performance only) – Richard closes the after-show party with his now famous penny bend done two times! The camera is only inches away from Richard as he bends two borrowed pennies at his fingertips!

Disc 3 - Casino Concourse

Spoon Bend – Again Richard uses his spoon bending expertise to not only astound passers-by, but to also draw crowds over to watch him! See the professional way to handle this type of performance!

Dynamo Radar Deck – Richard recreates his classic Radar Deck effect with his new Dynamo Deck. See how this new prop can handle situations even when spectators make mistakes with their cards!

Dynamo Deck: 3 Cards – A spectator freely chooses three cards from a deck. Richard names a card and the spectator somehow grabs the right one from his pocket! This is repeated three times…and it’s freaky!

Spear-It Knife – Richard takes a forgotten classic out of Tarbell, Harrison’s Knife through Coat, and streamlines it for a modern audience. If you don’t already know the secret of this effect, when you watch it, it will stagger you!

Center Tear – Richard performs his famous Perfected Center Tear over and over again to amazed and dazzled people just passing by in the casino. See why this is one of his most cherished secrets!

Chronologue – For years, Collector’s Workshop has been including Richard’s personal routine for the Bob Cassidy effect, Chronologue. Now you can see how it plays for an innocent bystander in the casino!

Swami Effects – Richard uses the Swami Gimmick in a variety of ways to guess people’s birthdays, read their minds, and predict their thoughts. These clips show why this little gimmick is, perhaps, the most important one in mentalism.

Hypnotic Hands (performance only) – Watch Richard use his powers of suggestion to fasten a teenager’s hands together, creating screams of delight! Although not explained, watching this routine will teach anyone the right way to make hypnotic suggestions.

Thanks for taking the time and making the effort to post a run through synopsis Prager! That was very kind and a most considerate thing to do guy. Many of us have been waiting for something new by Osterlind. Have a fine evening!

It's copied directly from L&L's site at the link I originally posted. That's where the demo video is and more information about the product.

I heard there was a bonus easter egg on the first disc that has Richard juggling and finishing with the ping-pong ball on the nose gag?

You can now pre-order from Richard.

I think I've lived with this set the last few weeks more than any other. I've always loved what L&L has done. They take the best in the field, put them in front of a live audience and give us an opportunity to learn things that we would have to have had access to thousands of other sources to get it all.

In the opening segment on disk 1 Richard addressed the comments on the forums about the L&L audiences being staged, that "real" people wouldn't be fooled, etc. Because of that, Richard told Louis he'd like to do his material in a different setting, to show this material works everywhere and for anyone. Man, did we benefit from this.

To see Richard perform on disk 3 for passerby's of the casino concourse is incredible. He blew them away. He's so natural, I know what he's doing and I'm blown away.

And seeing Richard perform Symphony of the Rings on disk one, before a live audience at the Catch A Rising Star theater was unreal. I loved it and so did the PAYING live audience!

This is a MUST get set!
