Hendrix Family Sues Over Live Recordings

Claiming rightful ownership to a series of concerts from 1969, the Hendrix family is suing an unnamed company for $2 million in legal costs and expenses. The shows, recorded at the Royal Albert Hall in England, were supposedly sold to party that recorded the concert to be used for a film soundtrack, a representative told TMZ.

It is unclear if the unnamed company that currently holds the recordings is the same company that recorded the concerts in ’69, nor if there is a film about Hendrix currently in development that would use these recordings. And while this is a new action brought about by the Hendrix family, these recordings have reportedly been involved in a 40-year old dispute, according to NME.
