Fred Kaps

Back in 1965 Fred Kaps gave a landmark lecture at the Magic Circle and now this lecture is available on CD together with a booklet containing a transcript of the lecture. Bearing in mind Fred Kaps' reputation, it is strange that so little has been written about the man and his methods.

Other than several magazine contributions, little of Fred Kaps' work exists in the English language. There are two sets of lecture notes, one dealing with general magic and the other describing some of the coin magic Kaps performed on a film made for magicians. Both seem to be still in print although the name of the publisher is not indicated in either and those copies in circulation today may well be unauthorised.

Although not an inventor, Kaps did have the ability to take any effect and make it a miracle by moulding it to his own personality; a personality which made it impossible for others to copy. This was one of the keys to Kap’s success. He made the trick part of himself. Its presentation was so interwoven with his own personality that it was impossible to imagine anyone else performing anything that Kaps had already done.

He did this again and again. The Floating Cork, Homing Card, Salt Pour, Surprise Stab, Blank Notes to Bank Notes, Chink A Chink and many others. After Kaps had performed the routine you could not imagine anyone else doing it better.

Many years ago we released this incredible lecture on a Magicassette together with a small booklet. The whole recording has now been digitized. The booklet has been redesigned and re-written and the entire package is available on CD with the booklet.

The Magic Depot, Online Magic Shop FREE Shipping Worldwide!– Aaron Moring
First thing to remember: this CD was recorded in the 60's. Time has taken its toll on the master copy. There are some pops every once in a while. However, you can make out almost all of the dialog, and if you miss anything, there is a printed transcript included with the CD so you won't miss anything. Secondly, Fred Kaps is one of the classics. He repeatedly talks about how "Dai Vernon would do it." He comes from the keep it natural school and is an honors student. There are about a dozen tricks, mostly standards that can be found in classic books, but the lecture is not about tricks, it is about how to do magic. And for that purpose, it is great. For the historian or serious magic student looking not for a new trick but how to improve the ones he/she is doing already, please get this. And listen well.
