As far as I know this is two old videos that L&L now have put out together on one DVD.

I think you're right. If you love Larry, then these will be great!

I think Diffrently. I read what HP had for it and it seems like Tupac's 200th song. I hope I'm wrong and I'm going to buy it to see.
But I love Larry's stuff I have his Books and his "Thoughts on Cards" I loved those to death.
I hope that I will be wrong and they did this DVD justice.
I don't know it 4 in the morning here maybe I need a wallet.(for you Chris)

Paisa23, good comparison. Tupac is still releasing material!!

These were on PAL video years ago. It will be just great to see Larry healthy and enjoying life!!

Hi gang,

Peo, you were close, but it is not put out by L & L. Stevens Magic originally imported the videos from Pierre Mayer in France several years ago. They had to stop importing one of them, because Jeff Busby, being his usual self was making litigenous noises. Stevens, along with Pierre have released the two original videos on one DVD. They are available at the link listed below.

Have a good one,

Bob Phillips

Is Jeff Busby even around anymore? He used to belong to the Café ( under a secret name ) and monitor things.

Hi MagicChris,

I don't know. A little over a year Busby sent out a couple lengthy, convoluted emails to several people (including a picture of himself on his "Hoverround"). For some odd reason, I seemed to be on his mailing list, because he sent me both of them. The "purpose" of the emails seemed to be to blast others.

I was on them also for some reason. They were weird e-mails.

Yes, Delta, you're right, but there's not the cho-cup routine, it's the single cup and balls routine. The tapes are originally filmed by Pierre Mayer, and is produced by Stevens Magic and the Academie de Magie of Georges Proust. This year with this tape and the book Up in smoke, the admirers of Mr. jennings we are very happy¡¡¡
Regards.

Thanks Abiloko
if I understand correctly these are not the exact tapes from Pierre Mayer.

Delta, the only trick that seems to be missing is The Chop Cup but there may be confusion on the title of the trick as Stevens Emp. list Single Cup and Balls in its place. Perhaps Stevens has made a mistake on the title of the trick. Perhaps!!!!!!
For my part I really would prefer to see LJ's Chop Cup.

Yves I don't think so, it seems that the chop cup routine is missing where as it seems to be on Mayer tapes as you can check it on http://www.larryjennings.com/

Anyone with a review regarding the quality of the DVD? Thanks
Message: Posted by: magicstudent (May 30, 2007 01:04AM)
Larry Jennings' Close Up is recorded on a DVD-R, I was not happy with the quality of the disc. The picture quality is not good but not bad either as it is actually a reproduction of video tapes version. I am really happy with the content material, it is a classic. It is a shame that it is not being reproduced with a better disc quality. Btw I got to send the DVD back to the store twice because of it.
