Biography by Richie Unterberger & Sean Westergaard
In his brief four-year reign as a superstar, Jimi Hendrix expanded the vocabulary of the electric rock guitar more than anyone before or since. Hendrix was a master at coaxing all manner of unforeseen sonics from his instrument, often with innovative amplification experiments that produced astral-quality feedback and roaring distortion. ...

Product Description

Axis: Bold As Love, Hendrix's second album, doesn't resonate through rock history the way its gatecrashing predecessor, Are You Experienced? did. In places, it almost seems as if Hendrix is cruising, albeit sublimely. Yet it's nonetheless a vital album, containing some of rock's most molten milestones. There's the fluid psychedelia of "Castles in The Sand", the viciously funky "Little Miss Lover" and the so-beautiful-it-hurts "Little Wing." Hendrix really hits altitude with "If 6 Was 9", where he waves his "freak flag high" over a tidal wave of guitar and a cacophonous army of Moroccan flutes--and "Bold As Love", based around Hendrix's typically far-fetched hankering for the axis of the planet to be tilted, thereby transforming life on earth. It works up into a head-melting frenzy of distorted guitar, a precursor to the staggeringly expansive leap forward he would take with 1968's Electric Ladyland. Hendrix dreamed the impossible and achieved it on his guitar. --David Stubbs

4.0 out of 5 stars Hang on, if you wanna go! 2 April 2002
Format:Audio CD
Unfairly consigned to the history books as the follow-up to "Are You Experienced?" and little else, "Axis: Bold as Love" is actually an eclectic and electrifying album. It shows Jimi and his Experience consolidating upon the sonic battery of their first outing, and delving back to Jimi's days on the chitlin' circuit in the USA, playing tough soul to tough crowds.
Jimi's endearingly silly sci-fi preoccupations are to the fore on the ridiculous "EXP" and jazzy "Up From the Skies", and the aforementioned soul excursions are best represented on the funky "Little Miss Lover". Bassist Noel Redding gets his own number on the dated-but-enjoyable "She's So Fine", but there's no stealing Jimi's thunder on material which ranges from the beautiful "Little Wing" and "Castles Made of Sand" to the hard, hard rock of "Spanish Castle Magic".
Placed within the Hendrix canon, this album is as unique and vital as all the rest, paving the way for the Experience's finest hour, "Electric Ladyland". This, then, remains our only snapshot of the Experience together as a cohesive whole, enthused by their first taste of real success, and working as a tight and efficient studio-based unit. More importantly, though, this is a superb record, and one every rock fan should have in their collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Axis Bold As Love 200grm Mono re issue. 16 Jun 2012
I've become something of a mono obsessive recently and have discovered that many of the classic albums I have been a fan of over the years sound so good in mono, with that rich punchy sound and not that silly and rather naff extreme panning that you get on stereo albums of the same era. Bit by bit I've been hunting down mono versions of some of my favourite old albums. I've bid on Jimi Hedrix's Axis album a few times and the price always soars way beyond my budget, a good copy typically going for around 200 odd quid. I recently gave up on trying to get an original mono copy and bought this Mono reissue instead, it still wasn't cheap and when I read the blurb on the inside sleeve I was initially a bit dissapointed to discover that this version is actually a new mono mix and therefore different to the original that I was after. Having said that, it does also state that this new mono version has been prepaired using all analogue and vintage mixing and mastering equipment and has been personally mixed by Hendrix's top engineer man Eddie Kramer. Once I actually played the record I wasn't dissapointed, it has vivid sound quality and a really punchy in your face kick to it plus loads of bottom end, I thought it sounded pretty cool.
Anyone who has read up on and listened to this album will know that Hendrix invested quite a bit of time into the stereo mix of this outstanding album back in 1967, he utillised swirling sound effects moving from one speaker to another, (EXP for example), aswell as phasing on the drums, (Bold as love), which also moves from left to right and right to left, making it one of the better examples of a stereo mix on a classic album from this time. Bearing that in mind, I think I still prefer this mono version even though a mono mix means those effects are lost.

5.0 out of 5 stars not the first but the best 29 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
one day i woke and discovered that axis was the best hendrix album.I got fed up with the riff based songs on 'are you experienced'. Most of that album seems really commercial to me,it does not work as whole album but a collection of songs where as axis is cohesive as whole. It opens with a jarring insrumental ipersonationg a flying saucer and seques into 'up from the skies'. It is great song that predicts global warming decades before anyone else. It has superb jazz feel.Next is 'spanish castle magic' with great lyrics and a rocker of amazing frenzy. One song follows another till we reach the masterpiece 'little wing'.The opening by even hendrix standard is superb as well as a great love song . If six was nine is three songs in one and ends with an inredible freak out ending with not guitar but flutes. The energy is maintained on the hard and poppy 'you got me floating'. the song is an amazing feel good song which makes the next song feel so unusal on this album.'castles made of sand' makes you come down to earth with three stories of ironies of life. Noel redding song is another piece which grounds the album. the remaining songs lift it up again particularly 'bold as love' which is one of the great hendrix tracks.What makes this album so special among hendrix albums is that no singles were released. I think it is the greatest hendrix album. buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riffs that blow your freaky mind 11 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album in the christmas. And i immediately fell in love with it. I am a dedicated Hendrix fan, even at the ripe old age of 16 and if you are a boy of my age do not write off this music as 'stuff my dad listens to' because in fact you will find that this is some of the best music of the last century. If you are a guitarist like me, you will admire this playing. This album has some of the best riffs of the time, even though they are not too well known, Spanish Castle Magic, one of the best on the album, could be passed as a modern retro-rocker tune. It has enormous power. 'you got me floatin' ' is another of those brilliant riffs that you, guitarist or not will long to play. this album is a striking and frightening cosmic display of awesome composition that cannot afford to be missed by any age or era of people.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great follow-up album.
'Are You Experienced' was certainly a tough act to follow but 'Axis' certainly comes close. The album starts on a very silly note with the track 'EXP', which does nothing for me,... Read more
