Jeff Healey's Family Fume Over Cd Release

The family of late blues guitarist JEFF HEALEY are furious with a record label for distributing an "unauthorised" disc featuring the star.
The Jeff Healey Band - Legacy: Volume One is set to be released by Canadian label Arbor Records and distributed by EMI Music Canada.
But the star's family insist they have not given the label permission to put out the record.
The disc - set for release next month (Nov08) - includes unreleased material and appearances by George Harrison, Paul Shaffer and Jeff Lynne.
The family claim the content of the album came from former Jeff Healey Band drummer Tom Stephen, who was engaged in a legal battle with Healey over alleged unpaid royalties.
Healey's wife Cristie said the family are "deeply and sadly disappointed" to hear that the LP is set for release.
She says, "We ask that Jeff's fans please refrain from purchasing this compilation out of respect for Jeff and his family. This release is not authorised or supported in any way by Jeff's estate".
Healy died after a battle with cancer in March (08). He was 41.
