Teresa Brewer

A very early "Teresa" singing what I would call "Novelty" songs  going by some of the titles
she certainly sounds a lot different in her later recording's... her "Jazz" recording's in the 80's & 90's has her voice lower and more mature but I guess that comes with age !
The Extra track below "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" is from "Live At Carnegie Hall" CD just to show how much her voice had changed recorded in April 1978 !!!

2. The Rains Fall on Everybody
