Hampton released at least one record, a single by a quaintly named band called Goodwin, Longsmith Esq.  The titles on it were a cover of Elton John's 'Skyline Pigeon' and a (presumably) self-penned song, 'Let The Sunshine In'.  There's no date on the label, but the sides are in stereo, which stongly suggests the '70s, and the 'B' side features a fairly basic-sounding synthesizer, reminiscent of that on Chicory Tip's early 1972 hit 'Son Of My Father'; if I was pushed to have a guess at a date I'd say 1973.  The catalogue number of the single was GLS-1; There are streets called Goodwin Court, Longsmith Street and Hampton Court in the GL-1 area of Gloucester - maybe the band came from there.  Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
