Teresa James & The Rhythm Tramps

Teresa James & The Rhythm Tramps - Live - 2000 - Jesi-Lu

A relevant quote from a music website stated that, - "Teresa is where Texas meets New Orleans-funky and greasy-and everyone has a good time! Texas-born Teresa James has been called "a singer's singer" - but she deserves wider recognition".
