Reviews:

''Axis: Bold as Love'' is the second studio album by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Under pressure from their record company to follow-up the successful debut of their May 1967 album ''Are You Experienced'', ''Axis: Bold as Love'' was released on Track Records in the UK in December 1967. It reached #5 in the UK and later, #3 in the US.

The album was recorded to fulfill the band's contract, which stated that they must produce two albums in 1967. Even so, it was not released in the USA until 1968 due to fears that it might have disturbed the sales of the first album. Bassist Noel Redding has noted that this was his favourite of the three Experience albums. He plays eight string bass on some tracks.

Just before the album's completion, Hendrix left the master tapes of side 1 in a taxi. They were never found again, and thus the A-side had to be mixed again quickly.

The album was re-released on the week of March 30, 2010. Like the other 2010 re-releases, the sound varies slightly with minor tweaks from Hendrix's sound engineer Eddie Kramer. - Wikipedia
