Production

The film does not include any songs written by Hendrix, as the filmmakers’ request to use them was denied by Experience Hendrix LLC (Hendrix’s estate). Instead, the film set in London in 1966 and 1967 includes the songs that Hendrix performed during those years, shortly before the release of his debut album, Are You Experienced.[4] All musical parts were played by Waddy Wachtel (guitar), Leland Sklar (bass), Kenny Aronoff (drums). Wachtel wrote short segments of music for the film that sound similar to the Experience’s early songs.[5]

The site’s consensus states: “It’s uneven—and it lacks the primal power of its subject’s classic recordings—but Jimi: All Is By My Side offers a well-acted alternative take on the Hendrix myth.”[6] On Metacritic, the film has a rating of 66 out of 100, based on 27 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”.[7] On its release, Kathy Etchingham, who was not consulted during production, strongly criticised the film’s dramatization of her relationship with Hendrix, describing it as “absolute nonsense”.[8]
