Axis: Bold As Love, the sensational sophomore release of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, showcased Hendrix's expansive experimentation while acknowledging his early R&B and soul music influences. The album features classics such as "Spanish Castle Magic," "Little Wing," "Castles Made Of Sand," and "If 6 Was 9." Produced from the original monophonic mixes created by producer Chas Chandler, Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Kramer, this reissue was cut to lacquer by noted mastering engineer Bernie Grundman. The plating at QRP was done by Gary Salstrom, master plating technician and QRP general manager.
Axis: Bold As Love has been judged the Jimi Hendrix Experience's best collective effort, both for its incredible performances and innovative engineering by Eddie Kramer. Released originally in November 1968, it immediately garnered lavish critical praise. Original 1968 mono copies of this title on Reprise Records have brought as much as a staggering $1,400 to $2,000, if they can be found!
