This is the Holland release of "Standing Hampton" the Sammy Hagar solo album, his first after moving from Capitol Records to Geffen. Five of its singles charted in either the mainstream rock or pop singles charts. This web page has photos of album covers, inner sleeves, record labels together with production details, musicians and track-listing.

  Trivia: Sammy has said that he was originally going to title this album "One Way To Rock". It was a British fan who told him of the term that came to be the title. In Cockney rhyming slang, a "Hampton" is a term for a penis. One that is "Standing", of course, would be a reference to an erection. This led to the album cover art that shows a gentleman greeting a woman in various states of undress.
