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.
My three star rating for AXIS: BOLD AS LOVE is my average score for this particular reissue, rather than the album as a whole. AXIS has always been my favourite Hendrix album and so I decided that this would be the one out of all these new editions I would purchase first. The lack of bonus material will undoubtedly disappoint many fans. I think it would have been interesting to have included the original LP's rare mono mix in with the package alongside the more familiar stereo version, while despite the documentary DVD including some brand new footage of engineer Eddie Kramer at his explanatory best discussing some - but frustratingly not all - of the AXIS tracks, the over-familiar footage included of manager Chas Chandler, Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell (all now sadly no longer with us) now seems almost as old as the album itself! At least though the original gatefold sleeve design has been reproduced in its correct format on the cover of the inlay booklet, even if not on the cover of the digipak itself.
As with one of the previous reviewers, if I hadn't bought AXIS: BOLD AS LOVE before I would be pretty chuffed with this release, as it looks and sounds great, but ardent fans of Jimi Hendrix are undoubtedly going to feel short-changed.
Overall this is a very shoddy, tacky piece of marketing and Experince Hendrix should hang their heads in shame at allowing themselves to be talked into it. Talk about trying to milk the the cash cow, Hendrix would spin in his grave. This more the kind of thing Michael jeffrey would have approved of.Read more ›
