105. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Axis: Bold as Love
Release Date: 1967
In the infancy of pop music - as we know it now - there was an almost conveyor-belt release system. An artist could be expected to release at least one album per year, and possibly even two.
So we come to this, The Jimi Hendrix Experience's second album in 1967. The first was released in May 1967, the second in December. Of the two albums, this was the weaker of the two. There are relatively few stand-out songs on the album, and it doesn't seem to have aged as well as the previous release.
There's a book you may or may not have heard of called '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die'. Here is my attempt to do just that. Follow my progress from Frank Sinatra to Arcade Fire as I write my thoughts and feelings about each album.
