Locksley Wellington Hampton was born on April 21, 1932 in Jeannette, PA.
While this is the most comprehensive and accurate discography on Slide Hampton ever produced, there still may be omissions and errors. Please help if you can.

This discography was produced using BRIAN, a computer discography database program created by Steve Albin. BRIAN is a significant step in the field of jazz research and holds much potential. I encourage discographers to investigate this program. Steve has been incredibly helpful in terms of technical support and in custom-tailoring this program.
