"THE MARILYN YEARS" ('83-'97) Jimmy James singing LIVE! "I've Got A Crush On You." The Nancy Merrill Show was an early morning talk show in Boston, MA. This performance was Jimmy's idea. All of the producers were nervous over the draping of the pink satin. This was shot in only 2 takes. It almost didn't make it on air due to the fact that a 'man' was doing this and was looking so much like a woman. It seemed to confuse everyone involved. James retired from performing as Marilyn in 1997.
