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.

When I first saw that Jimi Hendrix's catalogue was going to be revamped in 2010, I was suitably intrigued. The previous CDs were pretty good already and so I thought that this latest batch were really going to be something special. However, the eventual results are rather underwhelming.

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.

Let's get one thing straight first, the above score is not for the album but for the package. The album is a true five star album, a classic that shows Jimi's skills as a songwriter as well as a guitarist. I'd recommend the album to anyone with a love for classic rock music. No, I've given it two stars because this is a right royal rip off. I previously had the old Polydor release of the album. I'd thought about getting the Experience Hendrix release for a while but always found something else to spend my hard earned dosh on. When I saw this was being released I thought this was the time to invest, afterall they were using the original 2 track masters for the remastering process and I was going to get the DVD as well. The sound is definately an improvement (To these ears at least), it sounds more alive, more immediate. That, sadly,is where any improvements end. If you already have the previous Experince Hendrix release I understand this is the same remaster, so no sound improvements for you. The essay in the booklet is nowhere near as interesting or as informative as the old Polydor release, and again I believe this is the same essay as the the previous Experince Hendrix release. So, how about the DVD. Well, it's quite interesting, for all of its 17 minutes. Yes you read that right, 17 measley minutes. And it has the feel of something just cobbled together, it is not something made specially for this release.

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.

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.
