Taking Control
(Fall 1967–1969)

AXIS:BOLD AS LOVE

Riding the wave of success from the early singles and successful United Kingdom and United States tours, the Jimi Hendrix Experience returned to London in the fall of 1967 for the purpose of going into the studio to cut their sophomore album. Enshrined in London’s Olympic Studios, the trio set about the work of recording new songs. In the studio for this record were Jimi, Noel, and Mitch, along with Chandler handling production and “song shortening” duties. Eddie Kramer was the engineer of record for all the sessions and George Chkiantz was tape operator. The product of the work done by all over the next several months was Axis: Bold as Love, the second official Jimi Hendrix Experience album, which was released in the United Kingdom on Track in December 1967 and on Reprise in the United States in January 1968. The record went to number five in the United Kingdom where it sat on the charts for sixteen weeks and to number three in the United States where it charted for fifty-three weeks.1 The album was released in a gatefold sleeve that allowed the full album art to be viewed when the jacket was unfolded. The image was of the Hindu devotional painting called “Viraat Purushan-Vishnuroopam,” which illustrated the various forms of Vishnu with Jimi, Noel, and Mitch’s faces superimposed. The inside of the gatefold sleeve was a large black and white image of the group painted by Roger Law. The United States issue on the Reprise label included lyrics for each song inside surrounding the painting.
