I hope this doesn't make anybody mad.....but check out the Bob King material. [shhhhh...]
Like Bonnie Raitt said, "I miss Little Feat more than I miss being 8 years old." Thanks for the concerts + recordings, Lowell, Richie, and Paul!

Nice call Steve! I actually first encountered Bob King's work in Best of Friends. Really good stuff as you know!

I see that it's been two years since I wrote that review and I still feel the same about Card Cavalcade. If a reader cannot find at least 40 useful effects or sleights in this 5 volume series I would consider going so far as to purchase the set from that person and resell them at at a LOSS to me to another magician who would certainly appreciate these treasures - and I'm a poor grad student living for now in another country so the loss would be significant, but, the gain for me at least would be that I turned somebody on to a set of books that deserve far more discussion than they receive.

Best,
Vlad

Sorry for the error but the Bob King material is in Jerry Mentzer's CARD FILE. Thanks for bringing up the Mentzer books, Vlad!

Vlad, thanks for the review. Thanks to it I took the books from my magic shelf, started to seriously study them, rediscovering a real pot of treasures!
Unfortunately I haven'th the 4th volume of the series and Jerry himself has no copies left.....
Is there anyone selling it?
