I was nervous seeing an ambitious 4 disc set from R. Paul Wilson. He is a good performer and full of commercial ideas; so why the hesitation? With few exceptions, when a magician does several quality products followed by a multidisc set - the results aren't pretty! I am glad to report the first volume to be a pleasant surprise.

Although there is some repeat of material from previous discs, the close-up worker has plenty to play with here. The visual nature of the Ring and Wand routine is beautiful; worth the price alone if you need one.

ConCam Rendezvous - A solid prediction you can carry with you. Even better you can use a borrowed deck.

Julie's Number - Fair and visual. A baffling transformation for the close-up worker.

Zulu Sandwich - A visual production of 3 selections that appear between 2 cards.

FL-Ash - Paul tips a Michael Sibbernson idea, for a flashy surprise revelation.

Less Is More - The queens rise to the top of the deck one at a time, only found to be the aces!

Challenge Aces - Simple and commercial! Actually part of Paul's working repertoire.

Gone Wishin' - A bold but workable method to make 3 coins appear in a coin purse previously shown to be empty.

ConCam Ring on Stick - The most visual method I have seen. Worth the price alone!

ConCam Monte - performance only.

Even better, many of these effects are easy to perform. So far the series seems to minimize knuckle busters! I am actually looking forward to reviewing the rest of the series.

Volume 1

ConCam Rendezvous - A shuffled deck and a prediction is all you need to perform this baffling effect.

Julie's Number - The spectator removes any four number cards. These are reversed in four different parts of the deck. With a snap of the fingers they transform into the four Queens!

Zulu Sandwich - Three selections appear, one at a time, between two cards. A baffling production.

Fl-Ash - Paul's application of a wonderful Michael Sibbernson idea combined with one of the finest card tricks ever invented.

Less Is More - The performer causes the Queens to repeatedly come to the top of the deck before finally changing to Aces.

Challenge Aces - A simple method is transformed into a stunning effect thanks to Paul's commercial presentation. This has been in Paul's repertoire for twenty years.

Gone Wishin' - Three coins appear, vanish then reappear inside a previously empty coin purse. A bold method for a powerful effect.

ConCam Ring On Stick - Paul's famous visual ring routine. Pure magic for the eyes!

ConCam Monte - Paul's brilliant underground version of the classic Dutch Looper. (Performance Only)
