"Jimi Hendrix, Axis Bold As Love - Japan Pressed OBI 200 Gram Stereo LP"

JIMI HENDRIX - Axis Bold As Love - JAPAN LIMITED OUT OF PRINT 200 GRAM STEREO MASTERPIECE Pressing SEALED NEVER OPENED NEVER PLAYED - . THIS TITLE WENT IMMEDIATELY OUT OF PRINT. THIS IS OUR LAST COPY OF THIS 200G STEREO PRESSING WEIGHT. An authorized Hendrix Family Limited Edition faithfully restored re-mastered from the Original Archive Tapes. Q Magazine said that "Axis dazzles as The Experience creates a genre probably short-lived because nobody else could play it. Jazz Metal might be the appropriate tag. " Vibe Magazine said "for folks who have never heard Jimi Hendrix on vinyl, the Rainbow fantasia world of Hendrix awaits you in all its polyphonic peacock glory." Axis Bold As Love made Billboard's Top 200 List as #5 in February of 1968. This release, for the first time, with all the Original Artwork, you can experience The Experience as was originally intended. Axis Bold As Love was the follow up to Are You Experienced? and represented a much more concise use of the recording studio possibilities. The mix -- cleaner and brighter than ever -- on this re-issue is clearer and more open reflecting Hendrix' growing concern for color and texture. Where his live shows continue to showcase the raw rocking power of The Experience, the recording studio gave Hendrix the composer/arranger a broader pulpit to work with. There are still plenty of powerful Blues/Rock infected songs such as the menacing - If 6 Was 9, the rolling - Spanish Castle Magic, and the spatial title tune. But Up From the Skies - is a jazzy trio romp featuring Hendrix bluesy vocalized wah-wah pedal and on the ballads - Little Wing and Castles Made of Sand - Hendrix shifts the focus from the band to the silvery chord/melodic accompaniments he often employed to compliment his vocals. They are an orchestral effect unto themselves.
