Axis: Bold As Love.

Axis: Bold As Love is the second studio album by The Jimi Hendrix Experience, released in 1967. Surprisingly, this is a contractual obligation album, as the Experience had to release two albums in 1967.

Although a highly popular album and undoubtedly a classic, it is generally held in lesser regard to Are You Experienced and Electric Ladyland, for better or worse. The album was listed at #83 in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. As for the cover art, the band members did not approve.
