:guitar:Jimi Hendrix's Family Wins Bootleg Case

The family of guitar legend Jimi Hendrix has triumphed in a legal wrangle over the sale of a bootleg album.

The live disc - titled 'Jimi Hendrix Stockholm Concert '69' - was illegally recorded in Sweden a year before the tragic rocker died of a drug overdose.

However, a ban has been imposed by a London High Court Judge on sales of the CD - and English company Purple Haze Records has been ordered to pay damages of up to $28,500.

Hendrix's family also successfully sued the owner of Slough-based Purple Haze Records, Lawrence Miller.

Hendrix must be the artist who sold more records after his death...He has few official albums released during his life, but all those live concerts...and studio stuff... and whatever, I once saw a list of 78 JH´s albums, most of them bootleg...
