Hybrid SACD featuring Both Stereo & Mono Mixes
Newly Remastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Analog Master Tapes
Analogue Productions presents Hybrid SACD editions of The Jimi Hendrix Experience's two landmark 1967 albums Are You Experienced and Axis: Bold as Love. Newly remastered by by noted mastering engineer Bernie Grundman from the original analog master tapes, each disc contains both the mono and stereo mixes for each historic title in sensational Pure DSD sound!
Very few albums radically change the musical and cultural landscape, altering our perceptions by way of a mad combination of forward-looking performance, liberating lyrical narratives, spiritual overtones, and unimaginable sounds. Jimi Hendrix's sophomore effort Axis: Bold As Love is one of those records, a timeless and prophetic set that still seems as if it comes to us from the future. Unrelentingly ambitious, deeply mythical, and profoundly virtuosic, the stupendous 1968 collection dives into a pool of lustful psychedelia, earthy blues, cosmic soul, and unhinged rock.
Along with jazz-schooled drummer Mitch Mitchell and melodic bassist Noel Redding, Hendrix establishes a new musical language, a foundation on which fellow guitar giants such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, and Prince would build. Featuring such eye-opening classics as "Spanish Castle Magic," "Little Wing," and "Castles Made Of Sand," Axis: Bold As Love stands as one of the Jimi Hendrix Experience's monumental moments, a tapestry scorched with color, sewn together with erotic threads, and varnished with rich personality.
