Axis: Bold As Love is the second studio album by American / English rock band The Jimi Hendrix Experience, originally released in December 1967 by Track Records.

“Axis” followed up Hendrix’s groundbreaking debut effort with a solid collection of great tunes and great interactive playing between himself, Noel ReddingMitch Mitchell, and the recording studio itself. Wisely retaining manager Chas Chandler to produce the album and Eddie Kramer as engineer, Hendrix stretched further musically than the first album, but even more so as a songwriter. This time Jimi had a little a little more time to craft his own material, and it shows.

He was still quite capable of coming up with spacy rockers like "You Got Me Floating", "Up From The Skies", and "Little Miss Lover", radio-ready to follow on the commercial heels of "Foxy Lady" and "Purple Haze". But the beautiful, wistful ballads "Little Wing", "Castles Made Of Sand", "One Rainy Wish", and the title track set closer show remarkable growth and depth as a tunesmith, harnessing Curtis Mayfield soul guitar to Dylanesque lyrical imagery and Fuzz Face hyperactivity to produce yet another side to his grand psychedelic musical vision. These are tempered with Jimi's most avant-garde tracks yet, "EXP" and the proto-fusion jazz blowout of "If 6 Was 9."

Axis is Hendrix’s coming of age in songwriting album. While he would go on to produce his masterpiece in technique and innovation on his next album (Electric Ladyland), Axis: Bold As Love stands as his peak in creative pop rock perfection.

Check out the tracks: “Spanish Castle Magic”; “Little Wing” and “If 6 Was 9”. 

This LP record is a "Legacy Vinyl" series reissue with remastered audio and reproduced artwork is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight audiophile vinyl.
