Jimi Hendrix Live At The Royal Albert Hall is a ten track CD given away by The Sunday Times recorded on February 24, 1969.
It features Hendrix playing with the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
This concert has been featured in earlier Jimi Hendrix live albums called Experience and More Experience.
The Sunday Times was sued by the company handling Jimi Hendrix estate because it caused a film version of the Royal Albert Hall concert to be delayed – Sunday Times avoids punitive damages.
