"Al" Hendrix, Mick Jagger, Eddie Kramer, Buddy Miles, Mitch Mitchell, Juggy Murray, Little Richard, Lou Reed and Pete Townshend.

The film is also known as A Film About Jimi Hendrix. The title was used on the 2005 DVD-cover and theatrical poster.


The soundtrack to the film features 12 songs as well as excerpts from interviews with Hendrix, his father Al Hendrix, Little Richard and others.


The estate of Jimi Hendrix authorized the 1973 film to be re-released on video and DVD in 1999. An expanded DVD edition was issued in 2005, featuring a new documentary, From the Ukulele to the Strat, with more remembrances of Hendrix through interviews with family and friends, the making of "Dolly Dagger", with producer-engineer Eddie Kramer breaking down the studio mix of the song and unreleased archive footage of a performance of "Stone Free" from the July 4, 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival.
