Product Description


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 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 headmelting 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

5.0 out of 5 stars # 2 of the sacred trilogy June 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK, so we have Are You Experienced, Axis, and Electric Ladyland. These are the edifices of recorded Rock. We all want to get as close to this kind of magic in one way or another--be it actually making the music or simply being near it in some way. What would life be without Hendrix? Buy this CD, nuture it, preserve it, and appreciate it in moderation as you would any good thing in life and it will never cease to bring you joy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Axis won't dissapoint! June 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
Hendrix reentered the studio mere months after recording Are You Experienced? and began work on Axis: Bold As Love. For many artists, recording a successful follow-up album to a hit is a difficult, indeed in some cases impossible, endeavor which often takes years of laboring over new material, but such was not the case for the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Hendrix's writing is much tighter and his music much more accessible. Some of his more extravagent and indulgent impulses (like Third Stone From the Sun) appear to have been tamed, and Hendrix seems to be trying to appeal to a more pop oriented audience. Indeed, you will only find two songs on the album which exceed the three minute radio barrier of the day. Chas Chandler's influence as creative consultant, manager, and producer is quite pronounced in this regard, and subsequently, Axis: Bold As Love is less raw than Are You Experienced, MUCH more accessible than Electric Ladyland, and not even in the same ballpark with Band of Gypsys.
Yeah, it's not the most memorable material Hendrix ever produced, but it's still extremely good. It's a terrible way to familiarize yourself with Hendrix's body of work if you're a Hendrix novice, but for the music lover and Hendrix fan, Axis: Bold As Love is an essential album, a must own, without a doubt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mono reissue.... May 30 2014
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Flawless vinyl reissue. Dead quiet and great sound. I prefer this album in mono. Yes it's different than the stereo mix but it
does bring a fatter sound, focus on drums and Jimi's vocals. Miles ahead of the SHM-CD crap edition!

5.0 out of 5 stars Each Hendrix album got better Oct. 12 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Unlike Led Zeppelin, each new Hendrix album got better. This was his second, and showed the growing breadth of his creativity.
These new high quality releases are great. I'm re-Experiencing them. Sounds like Jimi, Noel and Mitch are right there in my living room.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best sound Hendrix Vinyl June 17 2013
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
I got it because I did not think a mono record could sound better than a stereo record. simply pup I was wrong. The mono record Has better separation, and the guitar sound more aggressive. All of the Jimi Hendrix vinyl is great sound with great quality

5.0 out of 5 stars The Experience's best studio album July 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
Axis was originally released in 1968 and is the second of the three studio albums released in Hendrix's lifetime. For my money Axis is the Experience at their peak. Its better recorded than the debut "Are You Experienced?". The drums sound MUCH better and the guitar much more alive and richer in tone. And Axis is less rambling, more focused and less broad in scope than "Electric Ladyland". The songs flow better than either of the other studio albums and both the recording and song writing are more consistant. Not neccessarily better. Its just that Axis is more unified in sound than Hendrix's other studio output. It's his tightest and most psychedelic album. Jimi and his engineer Eddie Kramer really got some facinating sounds in the studio and used phasing among other tricks to great effect. Just check out the track list: Its got the live staple "Spanish Castle Magic", its got "Little Wing", its got "If Six Was Nine" "Im gonna wave my freak flag HIGH!" Its got the jazzy soul of "Up From the Skies" and the metal edged funk of "Aint No Telling" to the acid tinged 4 minute pop symphony of the title song "Bold As Love." Not to mention the beautiful Dylanesque rocker "Castles Made Of Sand." It doesn't get any better than this. One of the true psychedelic albums of the sixties. Just Beautiful.
