Worth over $15 million, the incredible collection features hundreds of unseen personal images, footage recordings, and promo materials - all displayed at the legendary club where Hendrix often played.
THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE @ THE MARQUEE will exhibit 30 - 40 hours of unreleased music, 200 - 300 hours of personal video - 60% unreleased, as well as over 1000 photographs many unpublished. Jimi's own clothes will be on show including his elk skin fringe jacket and a psychedelic shirt as well as 3 of his legendary guitars, and this is only a small sample of the entire collection.

Jimi last played the Marquee in 1967 - He's back.                www.cooperowen.com

Cooperown auction - Stratocaster owned by Jimi and more.....

Stratocaster owned by Jimi1963 white Fender Stratocaster serial number L08573, patent number 2573254, owned and used by Jimi Hendrix An extensively, concert played and studio used signature white Fender Stratocaster with rosewood fingerboard manufactured on 3rd September 1963, documented in many biographies showing photos of Jimi during the period of 1968 - 70 with the dark rosewood necked Strat. This guitar was given to musician Arthur Louis by Jimi Hendrix on 18th March 1970. After playing a charity show at the Speakeasy Club in London's West End, Louis' Gibson Les Paul was stolen that night from the stage. Arthur Louis was heard complaining about the loss of his guitar at a subsequent party at Mick Jagger's house, where both Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix both offered him a replacement - Jimi offering this Strat and Eric offering him a Gibson. The next day Louis met Jimi Hendrix and John Uribe, who came over with this guitar which he gave to Louis to replace the one he had lost. Some days later he received a note from Jimi saying how sorry he was that he had lost his guitar and that he hoped he was happy with this one (at the time of cataloguing this note was not available for inspection however the vendor is endeavoring to locate it to provide with this lot). It has been confirmed by the vendor that this is the white Stratocaster that was 'liberated' from Keith Richards by then girlfriend Linda Keith who in New York introduced Jimi to most of the rock aristocracy of the time including Andrew Loog Oldham and consequently Chas Chandler. Arthur Louis was, and still is, a well respected composer and guitar player a familiar face at the height of the Speakeasy's hay day, jamming and supporting many of the legends that we know today. The lot is accompanied by a letter from Arthur Louis confirming the lot's history together with a letter from Ray Turley which confirms the date of the instrument and describes in detail that the guitar's pick ups had been set to accommodate Jimi's left handed style and also confirms the extensive use by a left handed player. £100,000-150,000 Commission bids can be placed online now at www.cooperowen.com and until 2.00pm BST on Wednesday 30th June. The auction will then be held live on eBaylive at 4.00pm BST at http://pages.liveauctions.ebay.com/catalogs/catalog5942.html

Lot 51 'Electric Ladyland' LP signed by Jimi Hendrix, Noel Redding & Mitch Mitchell, Dezo Hoffmann Photograph A copy of Electric Ladyland Part 1 signed on the front cover Jimi Hendrix, Noel and Mitch all in blue ballpoint pen. Vinyl included. £ 600-800
lot 53Lot 52 The copyright of Jimi Hendrix' artwork The complete and exclusive copyright for the series of eighteen artworks sold as part of the collection of Bob and Kathy Levine in Cooper Owen's Art & Artefacts of Jimi Hendrix auction on 15th May 2003, the originals of which are now in private hands. The Levine's worked closely with Hendrix in the US, it was Bob Levine who took the call from Jerry Stickells in London to Jeffrey & Chandler Inc. offices in New York on 18 September 1970 telling of Jimi's death. Kathy Levine (then Eberth) was Jimi's P.A. and confidante from 1968 to 1970. It was to Kathy that Jimi gave his unique, and until now unknown, collection of artwork in Hawaii during the filming of Rainbow Bridge before leaving to go to the Isle of Wight festival in August 1970. According to Bob, Jimi carried two sketchpads with him for several years and on occasions when he was alone happily doodled and drew, painstakingly colouring them in suitably psychedelic felt pen. Some of the drawings appear to have begun as small doodles but develop into intricate, highly involved designs, some recurring motifs include petals, leaves, blazing suns and hooded figures - potentially a field day for a psychologist. The Hendrix Estate has confirmed that the Levine's own the copyright for the collection. ESTIMATE ON REQUEST.

thewoodstockspirit.org Hi. I am contacting you because our group is trying to preserve the original Site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival (aka Yasgur's farm) in Bethel NY of the Catskills region of New York State as an historic site. The property which still includes the famous natural bowl where almost 500,000 converged to watch the likes of Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix play Aug. 15-17, 1969, and the upper plateau where the crowds spilled over into concession areas, is slated to be developed as part of a local billionaire's plans for a performing arts center. Although our group, The Woodstock preservation Alliance (WPA), is all in favour of the arts center, we see the Woodstock site as a unique historic landmark that can co-exist undeveloped within the 1700 acres purchased for the center. We would like to see the Woodstock site remain unfenced with a permanent stage in the bowl so that others will be able to come and experience the place that defined a generation. The WPA is a group of preservationists who are attempting to change plans to build on the land above the bowl area by challenging the developer and their adherence to guidelines for historic preservation a the state and federal level. By summer of 2004, if the plans are not challenged, building will begin on the site as Phase 1 of the performing arts center. We are asking those, like yourself who have websites that cater to people who might be interested in our cause, to help direct them to the WPA website so that they can learn how they might help before it's too late. If you are interested in helping, we are asking participating webmasters to place our website banner in a prominent place to that others will know to visit our site. Absolutely Nothing is being sold on our website. All we want is to spread the word of the development plans. Something the developer has been careful Not to do. To obtain the banner ( with HTML tag already inserted), please go to thewoodstockspirit.org/imglink.htm where you will find the banner to place on your webpage. We thank you for the time and hope that you can help preserve this globally reknown historic landmark, so it can be experienced for generations to come. Sincerely, Brad Littleproud (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) The Woodstock Preservation Alliance www.thewoodstockspirit.org

Hendrix's Body Moved To New Memorial

Jimi Hendrix's body has been relocated to a new memorial in the Seattle area. The late guitarist's remains were disinterred last November 26, one day before what would have been his 60th birthday, and moved to another site in Greenwood Memorial Park And Cemetery in Renton, Washington, where he was laid to rest in 1970.

Hendrix's body and his original headstone, along with the remains of his late father Al Hendrix and Al's wife Ayako "June" Hendrix, are now in burial vaults at the new location, a granite-and-marble memorial featuring a 30-foot-high dome that is supported by three columns dressed in rainbow marble. In addition, the cremated remains of Nora Hendrix, Jimi's grandmother, are to be relocated to the site.

"Original Art of Jimi Hendrix and Artefacts"
To be held at 23 Denmark Street, London, WC2H, 15th May 2003, 5.00pm BST
Cooper Owen offer possibly the greatest collection of Jimi Hendrix personal items and artwork ever to appear for sale from the collection of Bob and Kathy Levine who worked closely with Hendrix in the US. Bob worked with Jimi from 1967 until 1970 (he took the call from London to Jeffrey & Chandler Inc. offices telling of Jimi's death) and masterminded much of his career, acting as 'power broker' and controlling Hendrix' American enterprises. Kathy was Jimi's PA and confidante during 1968 to 1970.
The highlight of the sale will be the eighteen pieces of Jimi's original artwork, most in the form of felt tip multi-coloured drawings that show Jimi to have been a relatively accomplished artist with a surprisingly good eye for colour.
Also included is Jimi's address book containing many of his industry and personal contacts, listing several of his numerous girlfriends, such as Linda Keith and Sharon Lawrence.
An important lot is an otherwise unassuming smoke stained paperback translation of the Jean-Paul Clebert novel 'The Gypsies', which apparently inspired the name 'Band of Gyspies'. This is also annotated by Jimi.
Significant relics from concert performances include the red, white and blue silk bandanna worn at the LA forum on 25 April 1970 and a gold sequined arm band worn on stage in Wisconsin on 2 May that same year.
Other highlights include mementos to Hendrix' sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle which is evident from his coke spoons (above) and drug bottles to a French children's book given to him by Brigitte Bardot and various pieces of jewellery.
