complete set on audio CDs
Dai Vernon Lecture on audio CDs, originally recorded on tape at The Magic Castle in 1963 & 1964.
Produced by Bruce Cervon in 1987 and originally released by Bruce on audio cassette tapes. Now available on CDs thanks to the Bruce Cervon Estate.
On April 9, 1963, a very select group assembled at the newly-formed Magic Castle to hear Dai Vernon lecture. This was a historic moment because it was on the strength of this presentation that Vernon was asked to become the Castle's resident magician - and now, through the magic of audio recording, you can be there, too, almost 50 years later. Volumes 3 & 4 record another lecture on December 6, 1964. Vernon was performing regularly at the time; his methods were brilliant and his timing perfect.
Includes: Vol 1 & 2, The First Magic Castle Lecture, April 9, 1963.

If you wonder about the colors of the inserts, the designer was inspired by the colors of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.
