Axis: Bold as Love – The Jimi Hendrix Experience


From Wikipedia:

Axis: Bold as Love is the second studio album by the Jimi Hendrix Experience. It was first released by Track Records in the United Kingdom on December 1, 1967, only seven months after the release of the group’s highly successful debut album, Are You Experienced. In the United States, Reprise Records delayed the release until the following month. The album reached the top ten in the album charts in both countries.

The album displays several musical styles and critics saw it as demonstrating Jimi Hendrix’s growth as a songwriter. It features “Spanish Castle Magic” and “Little Wing”, two Hendrix compositions that draw on his roots performing with rhythm and blues bands and would remain in his live repertoire throughout his career. Its album cover generated controversy for displaying Hindu religious iconography. It was designed without Hendrix’s approval, and he publicly expressed his dissatisfaction.

Like its predecessor, Axis: Bold as Love was a critical and commercial success, being certified platinum in the US by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and silver in the UK by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). In 2000, it was voted number 147 in Colin Larkin’s All Time Top 1000 Albums (2000).[1] Rolling Stone ranked it number 92 on its 2020 list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”.
