Number of items: 1 - Very Good Plus (VG+) - Stereo

Axis: Bold as Love is the second studio album from the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Track Records first released it in the UK on December 1, 1967, just seven months after the release of the group's highly successful debut, Are You Experienced. In the United States, Reprise Records has postponed the release until next month. The album reached the top ten on the album charts in both countries.
For the album, the group showcased different styles of music and critics saw it as a testament to Jimi Hendrix's growth as a songwriter. The album introduced "Spanish Castle Magic" and "LittleWing", two Hendrix compositions drawing on his roots performing with rhythm and blues bands, which would remain in his live repertoire throughout his career.
The album cover, which draws on Hindu religious iconography, has caused controversy. It was designed without Hendrix's approval, and he publicly expressed his dissatisfaction. However, the album became quite successful and was certified platinum in the US and silver in the UK. In 2000, Axis: Bold as Love was voted number 147 in Colin Larkin's All Time Top 1000 Albums (2000). Rolling Stone ranked Axis: Bold as Love number 92 on its 2020 list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
This LP is rare: LP comes in a cardboard box
original with inner sleeve.
