Many many times, when Albert performed/demonstrated at a magicclub, this was announced to the members as a *lecture* and that's actually what Albert called it himself.
He did his act and told some basic insight in his act by telling a couple of stories/reminisenses.
But it normally never was what we *magicians* do call a lecture.
Nevertheless, to me and a lot of others, it was one of the best *lectures* just to se him perform, to se the *real work*..
This alone was a lecture in itself!
First after Albert stopped performing regularily, he release his book and later the video *Magic by Gosh* (captured on his 65th birthday).
Together with the Ron McMillan DVD mentioned (earlier that one was a video too) it gives valuable insight in the work of Albert Goshman.
Anybody interested in close-up magic should own a copy of BOTH, as well as his book!
It shows a lot of things, amongst others, that it is possible to create a world class close-up act, with a few, a VERY few basic sleights..no shuttlepasses, no backclips :)
His act even today would no doubt still be continously booked allover the world.!
