This Nearly Was Mine
"Tampico" is a popular song, composed in 1945 by Allan Roberts, with lyrics by Doris Fisher. It was produced in that year by Stan Kenton. The song gave June Christy a top-10 hit in 1945, peaking at #3 on the Billboard charts. Christy later commented to the "Jazz Journal International" that she had been disappointed that her first recording with Kenton was "Tampico," but was fortunate that it was a hit and established her right away.
