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.
