Wasn't there a series of little pink(?) booklets by Crandall, too?

Late response, yes I ran across my set of them recently. I also ran across a set of the "Comments" booklets he published after he was banned from the NEW TOPS.

O.k., we are waiting. Why was he banned from the NEW TOPS?

According to Greg Bordner from Abbotts he was not banned from the New Tops but censored.

We just uploaded "The Best of Senator Crandall" as a $4 download. In the introduction by the Senator he compliments Neil Foster on his wisdom in editing his column.

Greg may be right about Crandall being censored not banned but the upshot was he no longer wrote for New Tops.

Clark also invented and sold his version of the Brainwave Deck. I bought one from him and loved it, but I lost it in a move from CA to TX. Anybody have one they want to get rid of ?
Success to all.

Senator Crandall's one-hand version of six-card repeat as published in Tarbell 6 is phenomenal, and is clearly a seminal piece of work revered and used as a "starter set" in much of the thinking behind other great magicians' versions of this great classic trick.

I may be wrong, but it looks to me like Pop Haydn has incorporated much of Crandall's one-handed six-card repeat "bits" in his most recent version of this trick.

I highly reccomend looking this up in Tarbell 6!

For anyone interested there is a complete re-working of the Crandall One-handed Six Card Repeat in 'Magictales Two'; It concludes with a strong finish (for the lack of which the original has often been criticized).

Leslie.
Stories....?....That's telling!

Bill Tadlock, my mentor when I was fourteen, was a friend of Crandall's and Monk Watson's, and he played an audio tape for me that Crandall had made teaching how to play the banjo--"You have to tune this string until just before it breaks..." I met Crandall a little after that at Abbott's Magic Convention. He was quite a character, and a big influence on me. My Six Card Trick is based on a combination of Crandall's and Roy Benson's. I think that much of Crandall's routine came from Benson, but the comedy was his own.
