Jimmy McShane, aka Baltimora (May 23, 1957 - March 29, 1995) was a Northern Irish dancer, known for his 1985 hit "Tarzan Boy". Despite being the focus of the band, his songs were written and sung by Maurizio Bassi. Baltimora first appeared during the summer of 1985 sweeping over Europe, before finding release in the United States via EMI. The time it took for EMI to finally break "Tarzan Boy" in America resulted in the song earning a six month stay on the Hot 100, ultimately peaking at #13 in the early spring of 1986. His first album, Living in the Background arrived some time later.
