Background: Axis: Bold as Love, released in December, 1967, was the second album by the Jimi Hendrix Experience.  The album reached #2 on the UK charts and #5 in the U.S., where it has since been certified 5 times platinum by the RIAA. gave Axis: Bold as Love a 5 star review:

Jimi Hendrix’s second album followed up his groundbreaking debut effort with a solid collection of great tunes and great interactive playing between himself, Noel Redding, Mitch 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.

It’s our favorite Hendrix album, and it’s also the best-sounding of the three albums he released in his lifetime.
