A very popular illusionist was Jim Bailey, whose been performing since the early 70s, in Las Vegas, on television and in the movies, and of course on record. He appeared on "The Tonight Show" fourteen times, and on shows ranging from "The Lucy Show," "The Rockford Files," and "Ally MacBeal." His impressions were dead on, especially of Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. He's released three recordings, the self-titled "Jim Bailey" in 1972, and the next year "Jim Bailey at Carnegie Hall," and finally, a CD in 1998 called "Voices." Since his albums were on a major label, United Artists, a coup in itself, several 45s were also released, unusual for a drag performer.
